Subject Re: How to test clicking on links?
Date Sun, 19 Oct 2008 20:56:11 GMT
Hi Bloomen,

Can't help with assertions.  Haven't used them at all yet.  Can you 
instruct Jmeter to click on a button? ... no not really.  You can click 
on the button yourself; work out what gets sent to the webserver on the 
click and replicate that with samplers OR you can write some regular 
expressions to extract what the button does in a bit more of a generic 
way and replicate the request but it's not like you can make jmeter just 
click something and whatever that something triggers will get triggered 

Jmeter isn't a browser & won't execute any JS that might be attached to 
a button.  It assumes you know more than the fact that a button exists.  
It assumes you know what the button does or will do in every situation 
and you have to build your tests accordingly.

PS This question is on a different subject so you should have posted 
this as a new email. Also it would have been better not to direct the 
email at me. I'm just a user and definitely not a Guru. You would get 
more help by posing your question to the community.
