Test Data Generation
By 'opening' the
Test Data section in the GUI it is possible to Generate a Data Grid filled with Random Data.
Test Data Grid
The Test Data Grid contains the 'schema' or 'template' to use to generate data for the grid.
Each row represents a Column in the final data grid.
Add a new column by pressing the
+ Add Row button.
You can rename the column by double clicking on the
Column Name field.
The Type is the
type of data that will be generated in the column. This can be a
RegEx (Regular Expression), or one of the predefined random data types e.g.
The Types of data available can be chosen from the drop down value.
The drop down is an
option select so you can type in a filter e.g
Number of Rows to Generate

How Many? text field.
e.g. to generate 1000 rows of data enter
1000 in the
How Many? text input field.
[Generate] button to generate the data.
The schema in the Column Definition Data Grid will be used to generate the data.
All data generation happens in the browser so the amount of data you can generate is limited only by the performance and memory of your computer.
When you add rows using the data grid, you will see the information is also copied into the text area in the right. This allows you to copy and paste schema definitions for re-use.
The Schema format in the Text Area uses the format
When no type is present it is assumed to be a Regex e.g.
1234 is a Regex that represents the string "1234"
