two variables in one variable

on Sun Aug 18, 2013 3:23 am
Hi!

I'm trying to use two variables in one variable. It is possible to use a variable in the Value column. However, I can't use 2 variables to show the result.

The script (variables x and y being different numbers):

store | 1 | a
store | 5 | b
while | ${a}<${b}
storeEval | ${x}-${y} | difference${a}
storeEval | ${a}+1 | a
endWhile

Above is working fine. I'm able to get the different variables created when using the 'direct' name of the variable:
echo | ${difference1}

What I want is somthing like:
echo | ${difference${a}}

this doesn't work. I have tried different variations, but nothing I tried did the trick.

Does anybody know if somthing like this is possible in Selenium IDE?

thx!

Try:
echo | ${difference}${a}

I tried it and it gives back the two variables. Say 'difference' = 4 and 'a' = 3 then 
echo | ${difference}${a}
gives back: 43


What I want is to show the content of the variabe ${difference3} but using ${a} for the number.

I'm confused on what you are trying to do. 

The only thing I can think of having you add to your steps is:

storeEval | difference${a}| difference
echo  |${difference}

If that's not it, can you give me an example of what you want to show, given 'difference'=4 and 'a'=3

The extra step is something I did consider but didn't know what the step should look like. Your suggestion is not what I want. Your suggestion gives "difference3" as result.

What I want is the content of the variable 'difference3'. So, using the above script 4 variables are created (difference1, difference2, difference3, difference4). Each loop has different 'x' and 'y' values resulting in different sums say 10,20,30,40. That means the variables created contain:

difference1=10
difference2=20
difference3=30
difference4=40

I can get the content of the variables using:
echo | ${difference1}
echo | ${difference2}
etc.

What I'm trying to accomplish is using a variable for the number. like this:
store | 1| x
echo | ${difference{x}} {<-- this doesn't work)
echo: 10

I want this so I can make part of my script general. I now fixed it by adding an extra step to my script:
storeEval | ${difference1} | difference

inspired by your solution, so thank you ccox!!

I'm still curious though if what I want is possible.

I get what you're saying now.  I'll see if I can think up a better solution.  I tried a few things, but am seeing what you are.

Hi wouter,

You can use 2 variables at in single code as below.

storeEval | storedVars['difference${x}'] | difference

It will surely work as you need.

If it doesn't work, then please install STOREDVARS addon of selenium ide. Then try to run this. It will surely work.
