storeGetVar

This extension adds the command 'storeGetVar' which stores a get-var retrieved from the url into a variable.

Works with IDE too.

Code to add to the user-extensions:

user-storeGetVar.js
 
/*
 * Finds a get-variable in the url.
 *
 * Vincent Hindriksen
 */


function getQueryVariable(doc, location, variable) {
	var query = location.search.substring(1).replace(/amp;/, "");
	var vars = query.split("&");
	for (var i=0;i<vars.length;i++) {
		//alert('Query Variable :' + vars[i]); 
		var pair = vars[i].split("=");
		if (pair[0] == variable) {
			return pair[1];
		}
	}
	// comment next line, when "undefined" is needed as result.
	return "";
}

/**
 * Gets a get-var from the url
 *  target - variable to find
 *  value - the variable to store the result in
 */
Selenium.prototype.doStoreGetvar = function(target, value) {
    var location = this.page().getCurrentWindow().location;   
    var result = getQueryVariable(this.page(), location, target);
    storedVars[value] = result;
};

user-showVars.js
 
Selenium.prototype.doShowVar = function(target, value) {
/**
 * shows a simple popup with the variable
 * target - variable to show
 */
    alert(target+' : ' + storedVars[target]);
}

Example:

http://www.domain.com/index.html?a=first&z=last

storeGetvar a var1
storeGetvar b var2
showVar var1  
showVar var2  

The command showVar is very useful for debugging.
