Generate random data



Writing out the input data by hand is tedious, and violates the moral code of the efficient tester: let the machine do the work!. To automate this BlueDuck SDA comes with a set of data generators for some basic data.

	;New Test
	$TestOne = NewTest("TestDataGenerator")
	;Test Settings
	$TestOne.ScreenCapture = False
	;Start Test
	;Test Report

Get a new Random data object instance

	;Data generator
	$TestData = $TestOne.NewDataGenerator()
	$TestOne.AddStepResult("Random Name",$TestData.Name,1)
	$TestOne.AddStepResult("Random City",$TestData.City,1)
	$TestOne.AddStepResult("Random Country",$TestData.Country,1)
	$TestOne.AddStepResult("Random ValidEmail",$TestData.ValidEmail,1)
	$TestOne.AddStepResult("Random inValidEmail",$TestData.InValidEmail,1)
	$TestOne.AddStepResult("Random Alphanumeric",$TestData.Alphanumeric,1)
	$TestOne.AddStepResult("Random Number",$TestData.Number,1)
