Hi @mnawazud,

If you indicate it in the selectors You can fine a property called checked there you can find the status…
1.After indicating please check in the property explorer in UI explorer you will find the property fro checked…

hi @mnawazud

you can get it by get attributes activity.




With Get Attribute activity I am getting an error.

It would be helpful you provide sample xaml file where I can see how get attribute activity works

Try to do inspect element on the Check box, see the properties of the the check box(both Checked and Unchecked). Find the difference between both and make changes in Get attribute text accordingly

Use Element exists activity. Within that, in the selector, use the property → Checked.

Checked=‘1’ → this means checkbox is checked.
Checked=‘0’ → Checkbox is unchecked.

Thanks & Regards.

Way to revive an ancient topc :wink:

Not unimportant: looking at the previous error screenshots: that the checkbox is an actual checkbox. That is, an element that has the checked 1/0 property. If it is just some CSS triggered image with a check in it, it might not have that attribute.

In that case there is often some sort of class attibute you can use to determine which one it is. Simply look closely at the element or even parent element in both states (checked/unchecked) and look for a difference.
