# Thread: What is conditional input.

1. ## What is conditional input.

IS it that an output which is dependent on multiple inputs.
This term is related to white box testing.

2. ## Re: What is conditional input.

As I understand it a conditional input is an input into a test based on something else.
For example:

If radio box is not set
set the radio box to true
End if

So the input of setting the radio box to true is conditional on if it is already set

3. ## Re: What is conditional input.

Conditional input is noting but giving the input which is dependent on aother i/p.
For e.g.

There are three list box.
1.District
2.Taluka
3.Village

All having there unique id.
Here conditional input is the reference to another one.Means child is dependent on his parent.
Like Village is dependent on Tahsil/Taluka(Village comes under taluka and TAluka comes under distruict).This is the dependency.
Conditional i/p are like as conditional statements if...then..else.While ...not equal.&lt;,&gt;.

4. ## Re: What is conditional input.

is that not what I said?

Ah, but you were so much more succinct!

6. ## Re: What is conditional input.

Not exactly, you say output here, when you should say input. That's all I see wrong with it. So if I have a State list box and that is only populated when I select a country that has states or provinces within it. The input for the State box is conditional on the input of the Country box.

Not the output, the input. So, yes, it is when one input is dependent on one or more other inputs.

10. ## Re: What is conditional input.

In my opinion, conditional input may be have many kinds of meaning in different testing environment.
By the testing environment, The precondition of conditional input may be eyeable or not. Some time it may come from output of last time testing. Maybe it is decided by the input which is used by a testing process
