The United States ZIP Code generator is used to generate United States ZIP codes with LoadComplete. Using this generator type you can populate a list variable with various ZIP codes and then use this data in your tests.
To activate the United States ZIP Code generator, do the following:
Open the Generate Values dialog and select United States ZIP Code from the Data Generator list.
Activate any user-defined generator based on the United States ZIP Code standard generator as it is described above.
After you have selected the United States ZIP Code generator, you are offered to specify some additional parameters for the generated data. The parameters are:
Specifies the format of the ZIP codes that will be generated. The default value of the parameter is All.
Duplicate each value … time(s)
Specifies how many times each generated value will be duplicated. The default value of the parameter is False.
After you specify the needed parameters, you can obtain the sample values that have been generated by the engine. The values are displayed in the Sample field.
Also, you can discard all the changes you made in the generator’s parameters and restore the parameters set by default. For this purpose, click Set Default Values below the Sample field.
If you are going to use the same settings in several variables or if you configure one generator in the same manner from time to time, it is much easier to save the selected generator with the specified parameter values as a user-defined generator. For this purpose, click the Save to User-Defined button below the Sample field.
