Stored Variables Plugin v1.21 for Selenium IDE Released

Another major update to my Stored Variables Viewer plugin for Selenium IDE. Firstly, it is no longer called “Viewer”. Yes! it has finally become more than just a mere viewer. In this release, I have added the ability to remove stored variables. You can now remove selected variables or even clear all stored variables. Editing stored variables and even adding them are on the roadmap. Also on the roadmap is something even more exciting! Watch this blog or my twitter feed.

To remove all stored variables, select the Remove all menu item from the Stored Variables menu.

To remove selected stored variables, select the stored variables you want to remove by checking the check box for the stored variables, and then select the Remove selected menu item from the Stored Variables menu.

The Show default variables menu item has also moved under the Stored Variables menu.

Get Stored Variables plugin directly from the addons page on AMO (or the version page on AMO before AMO approves it).

    I’ve used the stored variables plug in for a while and in my company’s FF 10 implementation, with SeIDE 2.2.0, version 1.24, the remove all variables options doesn’t seem to work. The removed selected function is working fine. I’m wondering if a ‘select all’ type function would be good as a work around?

    I’m using your last version of Stored Variables Plugin, my question is is it possible to use a javascript command in selenium to clear all storedVars.


    • Samit Badle says:

      Hi Chantal,

      Yes, it is possible, however it is not recommended as the stored variables are also used internally.

      It might be better to include a test case that sets all the stored variables you are interested to some initial values.

    Hello, first i want to thank you very much this is awesome and so helpful. I don’t think this is a problem but when i use Goto If to get a false or a true variable, it does the true nicely but when it is false it only gives the name of the variable and not a false or a true, is it suppose to do it that way or not? It might be me not getting it right but was just wondering? Thank you (=

      Hi Karlien,

      I would expect it to work, perhaps, false is not really false, but undef or an empty string.

    Very useful as it store the value for the variable. However it only shown the final value. That will be great if it can show the value changes on different steps.

    For example, echo the actual value on log after command store*.
    in selenium IDE, reading a variable value from selenium ide extension (js file)
    storeEval | username | username
    log shown:
    [info] Executing: |storeEval | company | company |
    [info] script is: company

    Thus, we do not know the actual value on the parameter store

      While not part of this plugin, a similar feature is expected to be part of Selenium IDE in the future.

    Using IDE 2.8.0 and Stored Variables 1.24. Stored Variables now pops up a find bar at the bottom. While that is fine for the Stored-Vars tab, I think it is causing issues on the other tabs. All the other tabs now show another section below the main one that is about 33% tall and has a snapshot of the Stored-Vars contents. It is very annoying. (Along with all the 74 other KEY_* variables that we never use and have no way of turning off by default). Thanks for the plugin and listening. :)
