How can I call a user written function to generate and save a value into a parameter? I can use the evalStore command with some JavaScript as a parameter plus a variable name to hold the value. This is OK for simple bits of JavaScript but would be unwieldy for more complex functions.

How can I write code that can be invoked via a Selenium IDE command. My preference is to write the code in C# but other languages can be considered.

Simple example of where this is mechanism is needed: A test case requires tomorrow's date to be written, in a specific format, into a text field of a web page being tested. The ideal would be to enclose a C# call of System.DateTime.Now.ToString("_the_format_wanted_") in something that can be called from an IDE command.

  • Are you wanting to use the FireFox IDE and add C# code plug in to do this? – John Peters Aug 8 '16 at 15:39
  • @JohnPeters Yes to Firefox IDE. A C# plugin would be good. My question was aiming to find what facilities are available and how to use them. I had not seen references to C# plugins for the IDE until now. – AdrianHHH Aug 8 '16 at 15:46
