File Logging Plugin v2.7 for Selenium IDE Released

I promised a while ago that I will release a new version of my File Logging plugin for Selenium IDE with Unicode support. All those of you that have been requesting would be quite happy to hear that this release includes Unicode support. By default the Unicode support is off, you can change it to your desire from the File logging pane in the options dialog. You will get it automatically when AMO approves it. If you want it right now, you can get it directly from the version page on AMO.

Let me know if you like it.

    Great plug in, makes pulling details from tests much smoother.

    Would be nice if there was an option to apply a regex expression to the output to filter/format it.

    Sure I can do it myself but it’s easier if someone else does the work for me 😉

    Thanks again!

      Hi Simon,

      I had created another plugin called Log Filter as a companion to my Log Search Bar plugin. It allowed you to filter the log messages based on a regex or a search term. Since my log search bar plugin was not very popular, I decided that the new plugin would not be useful either. So it is just taking up space on my hard-disk. If I find some time, I will test it and release it.

    Hi Samit,

    Great Plugin, great for audit purposes to show all the steps have been executed.
    Is it posssible to enhance it slightly so that it outputs the name of the ‘Test Case’ as part of the log.
    When running a Test Suite, it is difficult to distinguish the start and end of a Test Case.
    Thanks Great Work.

      Hi Chris,

      While that is indeed possible, there were side effects that were undesirable. Maybe it will make a comeback in the future. Till then the best option is to include an echo command at the beginning of the test case with the name of the test.


  3. Chris says:

    OK. Thanks for the quick reply.
    I will give the Echo command ago.
    Hope you are able to figure out a way to pull the Test Case aame automatically without any side effects occuring sometime in the futue.

    Is it somehow possible to log each run (of TC) into new document without changing the path to the file in options manually? For example creating always new document with the name of TC + actuall time ?
    Thanks for your advise :)

      Hi Mato,

      It is not currently available, but definitely possible. If you use the test scheduler to run tests, there is an option to create a new log file for each test run.
