How to click to the last checkbox

Hello everyone,
I would need to click automatically on the last checkbox of a list on my browser (less than 5 but variable), i.e. the oldest article so as to delete it with a subsequent click.
If i click record, ui.vision extrapolate this:
Command: Click, Target: xpath=//*[@id="manageads"]/ul/li[3]/div/article/div/div/input and it work,
if I put li[2] select only the second checkbox, how do I make it select the last checkbox (regardless of how many there are)?
Thank you

I created a solution to solve this problem

you must use storexpathcount and after you select the latest xpath with [n] with the number counted from storexpathcount

The result will be:
xpath=//*([@id=“manageads”]/ul/li[3]/div/article/div/div/input)[${Var}]

newuserkantu thankyou,
i tried to use storexpathcount and enter in the “Target” this xpath=//*([@id=“manageads”]/ul/li[3]/div/article/div/div/input)[${Var}] but an error comes out: variable “VAR” is not defined .
How can I solve? What did I do wrong? Thank you

Read how work storexpathcount

After you must save value in variable and use it in xpath

https://ui.vision/rpa/docs/selenium-ide/storexpathcount

I tried to read but sorry I’m not a programmer, so it is difficult for me to understand.
I don’t understand how to save the variable and use it on xpatch.

Post url page and i create it for you, i need the url page

This is a web page that requires a name and password for access. Can I try to save the web page, save it on google drive and send it to you?

Try to save the page and i try to create macro code with saved page

Save page in html or htm please

the genre of the site is this, can the image be useful?

Without a page url i can not save the xpath

Try this code, it’s very hard to create macro code without access to the page

{
  "Name": "Checkbox",
  "CreationDate": "2020-8-10",
  "Commands": [
    {
      "Command": "storeXpathCount",
      "Target": "xpath=//*[@id=\"manageads\"]/ul/li[3]/div/article/div/div/input",
      "Value": "Var"
    },
    {
      "Command": "echo",
      "Target": "Latest Checkbox Is ${Var}",
      "Value": "#shownotification"
    },
    {
      "Command": "click",
      "Target": "xpath=(//*[@id=“manageads”]/ul/li[3]/div/article/div/div/input)[${Var}]",
      "Value": ""
    }
  ]
}

Thank you , this error comes out:
Line 2: Failed to execute 'evaluate' on 'Document': The string '//*[@id=\"manageads\"]/ul/li[3]/div/article/div/div/input' is not a valid XPath expression.
I send you the html of the page

This is the html
