Hello

Is there a way, when using $(value) in the databinding property window for the verification step, to trim the value, eg $(value).trim or $(rtrim(citemtext))

Thanks

Hello Cheryl,

No, you cannot trim the value directly in the Data Driven Editor.

As a work-around you can use a coded step to reference a data column or an extracted value, convert the value to a string, and use the String.Trim Method. Then you can set the resulting value as a new extracted value and bind that to subsequent steps.

in order to test a website that is incredibly dynamic, that is going to be a huge amount of work.  Perhaps this should be considered for the next version.

In the meantime, it will be quicker for me to trim the values in the SQL statement first.
