I need to utilize BaseURL feature during playback, but instead of the actual BaseURL coming from any sort of test configuration I want to be able to calculate it in the code and stick the value to the test run for all subsequent test steps to use. Can I do that?

Or, otherwise, can I set BaseURL to use for playback in the data source (XML file) the test is bound to?

Thank you!
Konstantin

Hello Konstantin,

You can override the BaseUrl property in a coded step like this:
Manager.Settings.Web.BaseUrl = "http://www.BaseUrl.com/";

One thing I figured on my own is how to set BaseUrl from the data:

string baseUrl = Data["BaseUrl"].ToString();
Manager.Settings.Web.BaseUrl = baseUrl;

The part
    Data["BaseUrl"]
is absolutely not documented and is terribly hard to discover. Please update the documentation for data binding.

Thank you!

Hi Konstantin,

Data["BaseUrl"] will only work if you're running a data driven test and your data source includes a column named "BaseUrl". Otherwise you'll get this error:

System.ArgumentException: The extracted variable 'BaseUrl' does not exist in the store.

Yes, of course! But it is exactly our scenario and it was impossible to discover that solution from documentation. Documentation never ever says anything about Data["..."]

Hi Konstantin,

We do have this documentation page specifically for using Data in code. There are many other code samples there as well.

Plamen,

When you override the BaseUrl using the coded step method you mentioned:
Manager.Settings.Web.BaseUrl = "http://www.BaseUrl.com/";

does this only override the BaseUrl for this coded step? Or maybe does it override the BaseUrl for the rest of this test?

Thank you,

Tim

Hi Tim,

That line of code changes the global setting for the life of that one test. So yes it's for all steps, coded and non-coded from that point forward up until the particular test ends. Once the test ends, this in memory settings object is discarded.
