The Computer Address generator is used to generate computer addresses with LoadComplete. Using this generator type you can populate a list variable with various computer addresses and then use this data in your tests.
To activate the Computer Address generator, do the following:
In the Generate Values dialog, select Computer Address from the Data Generator list.
Activate any user-defined generator based on the Computer Address standard generator as it is described above.
After you have selected the Computer Address generator, you are offered to specify additional parameters for the generated data. The parameters are:
Specifies the type of computer addresses to be used to generate values. The default value of the parameter is IPv4.
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.
