Sets checked value for input element of type checkbox or radio and updates v-model bound data.

  • Arguments:

    • {Boolean} checked (default: true)
  • Example:

import { mount } from '@vue/test-utils'
import Foo from './Foo.vue'

test('setChecked demo', async () => {
  const wrapper = mount(Foo)
  const radioInput = wrapper.find('input[type="radio"]')

  await radioInput.setChecked()

  • Note:

When you try to set the value to state via v-model by radioInput.element.checked = true; radioInput.trigger('input'), v-model is not triggered. v-model is triggered by change event.

checkboxInput.setChecked(checked) is an alias of the following code.

checkboxInput.element.checked = checked
