Quite often there are some elements and attributes that change dynamically on a page. For example – Say you have a currency conversion application. Today, 1 US Dollar would be equal to 0.89 Euros. The same dollar could be 0.90 Euros the very next day; as they change dynamically on a daily basis. In Testim, you have the following ways to handle dynamically changing elements-
Tip 1: Validating Dynamically Changing Elements
Whenever you want to validate dynamically changing elements, Testim has export parameters to handle this situation.
For example – Say you want to validate the price of your flight trip. The price changes dynamically on a daily basis based on multiple factors. In this case, you can use export parameters; where in, you can store the element in an export variable and use the variable in different steps as parameters and also use it to do different validations in a page.
Tip 2: Generating random values during run time
Quite often there is a need to generate random values containing text, numbers and certain prefixes during run time. This is possible using the generate random value step in Testim. The value gets stored in a variable name which can be used in other steps as well. By default the variable name is randomValue.
