In the previous example, the HTML form contains a select control that allows you to choose a country among several values in a country list. If you configure the country parameter using the same procedure as for the dynamicID parameter, NeoLoad will randomly select one of the possible country values and re-inject it.

You could have used a variable listing all the country options to obtain a similar behavior by setting the parameter value field to a variable. However, by using data extraction, you avoid having to keep variables synchronized with your application. Also, if other country options are added, you do not have to change the configuration or definition.
