Is there a way to extract multiple text values in one custom extraction rule Our website requires a number of parameters for subsequent calls (some which could be blank) however I don't want to add 10 different extraction rules to each response. An example of the data to get would be:

FileNumber=102103041

TransactionNumber=A934993434

RecordNumber=423443553

ClientNumber=49230

ClientDivision=50403

PolicyNumber=32452

AccountRecord=

AdditionalData=X543F43D345W342345

(VB Code please)

Thanks in advance.

In order to use the built in databinding in the ui you would have to put each value in it's own context parameter.

I suppose if you were going to execute a coded web test you could use an extraction rule that added a bunch of context parameters and then pull them out and bind them to the appropriate request parameters in your code.

a custom extraction rule would work... but I am not sure how to remove text from response like the built in extract text works... I think it uses regular expressions but I am not sure... anyway know code to extract text from a html response using a starts with and ends with would be nice.

The current extract text rule lets you specify a starts with and ends with string. This will extract the text between the to delimiters and place it into a context parameter.
