Subject Re: using the regular expression extractor to obtain a form value
Date Fri, 18 Jul 2003 02:10:33 GMT
You could name your sampler something like:


Then, in the View Results Tree, the name of the sampler appears, and you can see 
what questionID got set to. I would recommend making your default value something 
more obvious, like "failed!"

Also, shouldn't your regex look like this:
input value="(\d{1,3})" name="questionID"

I'm not positive about that as I'm not an expert on regexes, it's just something I noticed

about it - that maybe the whole value needs to be in the parentheses?  I know when I 
do .*, I use (.*) rather than (.)*, which seems analogous.
