[Webtest] Using setcheckbox
Mon, 25 Nov 2002 19:11:04 +0000
I'm trying to use the setcheckbox functionality of canoo webtest (build
number 234). It seems that:
1. One cannot use a dynamic property for the value.
For example: I have a web app which dynamically generates ID's for
elements of the system. I can select several of these using
checkboxes within a table. I know the checkbox (with its assocated
ID) is in the td cell immediately following the td cell containing
the element name. I can use a (rather ugly) regexp to get the ID
from the checkbox HTML, but I can't then use this dynamic property
to set the checkbox to 'checked'.
2. One cannot set additional checkboxes if some are already set.
For example: Some elements are already selected when I arrive on the
page with the form, and I want to select additional elements. Every
time I submit the form, only the values I explicitly set on that
visit to the form are remembered.
3. One cannot explicitly uncheck previously selected boxes.
For example: Same as above, but I want to deselect checkboxes.
Using 'setcheckbox' with value="xxx" checked="false" deselects
Are these real problems, or am I missing something obvious? Have any of
these been fixed in more recent builds (I looked and couldn't find any
suggestion they have been)?
