I am new to Selenium webdriver. I am working on a application in which clicking a button will pop-up a window for creating a new folder. In this pop-up window, we need to fill few input fields, check few boxes and then click on create button for creating a folder. I am trying to click on check-boxes and then click on create. The check-boxes don’t have a name, text, label. I tried using the CSS selector, and the following xpath of the element however, non of these are working. When running using the xpath I get an exception error saying “Unable to locate element”.

driver.findElement(By.xpath("//div[9]/div[2]/div/div/span/div/div/div[2]/table/tbody/tr/td[2]/table/tbody/tr/td[2]/input")); 

Here is the link for the pop-up window check-boxes image

First, the answer below will not be that elegant if you are testing a complex web app. If you really want to do the ExtJS ui testing right, add class names to relevant elements. If you can’t get developers to do so, life will be miserable.

Step 1: find the window by cssSelector .x-window or xpath //*[contains(@class, 'x-window')]

Step 2: find all checkboxes, cssSelector input[id^='checkboxfield'] or xpath //input[starts-with(@id, 'checkboxfield')]. Alternatively, you may also find table[id^='checkboxfield'] first, then get the input inside, but logic is the same.

Step 3: index the one you want

List<IWebElement> checkboxes = driver.findElements(By.cssSelector(".x-window input[id^='checkboxfield']"));
//checkboxes.size() here should be six in your case?
checkboxes
[0].click();

I’d suggest you to learn how to use xpath or cssSelector effectively. However, the reason I think this answer is still not elegant is because indexing a list of elements is not a stable approach.
Whenever UI changes, your tests fail. If you have a custom class name for that checkbox, it will be much easier, as you can locate this particular checkbox by its unique class name (e.g checkbox-owner-write).
