Difference between isDisplayed() and isEnabled() methods in selenium webdriver

isDisplayed() and isEnabled() Methods are used to check the visibility of the web elements. These web elements can be buttons, drop boxes, checkboxes, radio buttons, labels etc.

  1. isDisplayed(): Verifies whether this element displayed or not?

  2. isEnabled() : Is the element currently enabled or not ? this will generally return true for everything but for disabled input elements returns false.

package com.selenium.practise;
import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;
public class Verification {
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver", "E:\\Soft Wares\\chromedriver.exe");
		WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();
		String Url = "https://google.com";
		// Open the application in chrome browser
		String expectedTitle = "Google";
		String actualTitle = driver.getTitle();
		// verification 
		if (expectedTitle.equals(actualTitle)) {
			System.out.println("Title verification Successful");
		else {
			System.out.println("Verification Failed");
		// verify if the “Google Search” button is displayed and print the result
		boolean submitEnabled = driver.findElement(By.id("gb_70")).isEnabled();
		boolean submitDisplayed = driver.findElement(By.name("btnK")).isDisplayed();
		if (submitDisplayed==true && submitEnabled==true) {
			System.out.println("verification success for isDisplayed() && isEnabled() methods");


		// close the web browser

Output : Title verification is Successful Verification success for isDisplayed() && isEnabled() methods
