Using Data Generators

Applies to TestComplete 14.90, last modified on June 15, 2021

Using TestComplete, you can generate test values of different types and then store these values to TestComplete variables or Excel files. This approach lets you avoid creating the data storages that will contain test data manually, and you do not have to populate these storages with the data manually.
