How to parameterize with "today's date" with IDE

on Mon Aug 06, 2012 8:57 pm
Hello,

Is it possible to use JS to pull in today's date (or today +10 days)? We have been using parametrization successfully, but I'd like to have it execute code to generate those dates vs. modifying the file each time.

Currently, it just pulls in the JS code instead of the code executing and it pulling in the result. Question

Thanks in advance!

You could use java script date object to generate the date -

and then type in the generated date in required field.

Thanks Tarun -we were hoping to automate the testing with Selenium - otherwise I can just check a calendar, right? I appreciate the reply though! Smile

use this in your selenium rc code
to get current date
String a = selenium.getEval(" ((new Date()).getMonth()+1)+'/'+(new Date()).getDate()+'/'+(new Date()).getFullYear()");

to get current time
String b = selenium.getEval("(new Date().getHours()+" : " + new Date().getMinutes() + " : " + new Date().getSeconds())");
