-> twill is a great tool!
-> I'm hoping to migrate our entire web testing approach to it.
glad to hear it! be sure to check out some of the alternatives; there's
server. It's called Selenium, and people seem to like it.
-> There is one issue that I was unable to figure out yet. How could I
-> submit a value at a certain index of a select widget. The problem is
-> that I don't know beforehand what the content will be so I can't fill
-> that in beforehand. I realize that this functionality is a bit odd one
-> so it might not be supported right now, but if I wanted to add this
-> functionality where do you think it would be best place to start
Right. If I understand this, you basically want to set up a variable
Or, in python,
val = figure_out_value()
This can be easily added in via extension module. Basically, write the
function figure_out_value() and have it store the value in a variable
named something like __myvalue__.
fv 1 selectwidget __myvalue__
will set selectwidget to the value of __myvalue__.
Check out the twill/commands.py, getinput() function for an example of
how to fiddle with __variables__ in the twill namespaces.
You can also look at examples/extend_example.py to see how to write your
own extension function.
Does that make sense?
