checkbox value

Post by shaves » Wed Oct 08, 2008 6:57 pm

I would like to retrieve the value from a checkbox (to determine whether or not it has been checked. I am using the code below and it returns "null" for both checkboxes even though one is checked and the other isn't.

MyMacroCode = "CODE:"
MyMacroCode = MyMacroCode + "VERSION BUILD=6140505" + vbNewLine
MyMacroCode = MyMacroCode + "TAB T=1" + vbNewLine
MyMacroCode = MyMacroCode + "TAB CLOSEALLOTHERS" + vbNewLine
MyMacroCode = MyMacroCode + "FRAME F=3" + vbNewLine
MyMacroCode = MyMacroCode + "TAG POS=1 TYPE=INPUT ATTR=NAME:rateSourceName&&VALUE:*&&NAME:rateSourceName EXTRACT=TXT" + vbNewLine
MyMacroCode = MyMacroCode + "TAG POS=1 TYPE=INPUT ATTR=NAME:prePaidFuelCheckbox&&VALUE:null&&NAME:prePaidFuelCheckbox EXTRACT=TXT" + vbNewLine
MyMacroCode = MyMacroCode + "TAG POS=1 TYPE=INPUT ATTR=NAME:airportRentalCheckbox&&VALUE:null&&NAME:airportRentalCheckbox EXTRACT=TXT" + vbNewLine

Any suggestions to get the value of each checkbox would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for the help....

Hello,

How can you fail a test depending on the value of the checkbox?

Example:

If you expect that the checkbox should be checked, and its not, the test should fail.

Best regards
