The following procedure describes how to find the link identified by the text Next Page in the response referred to earlier. It will also allow you to dynamically play back all the link parameters values during playback.
To follow a link using an attribute value
Select the HTTP request containing the URL with dynamic parameters:
Select the Design section.
Select the Virtual Users tab.
Open out the corresponding Virtual User and HTML page.
Select the HTTP request containing the dynamic URL; this request belongs to the HTML page that that follows the page containing the HTTP request described earlier.
During the recording phases, NeoLoad identifies the URL parameters that will be sent when the link is followed. In the example, these parameters are searchID and page.
Change the HTTP request type. In the Type drop-down list, change the HTTP request type from Manually define the request to Follow a link from the previous request.
Make sure the referrer is the preceding request. In the Extract and follow a link from field, make sure that the request shown is the one containing the href HTML tag. If this is not the case, click on the Change the referrer button and select the correct referrer.
Select the link attribute. Click on the Link whose option box, then select the attribute to search for. For the example, select link text to tell NeoLoad to search for a link content of the type <a href=..>[content_to_be_searched_for]</a>
Enter the attributes value. In the is field, enter the attribute value to search for, in this case "Next Page". This tells NeoLoad to search for a link whose form is: <a href=..>Next Page</a>. This will instruct NeoLoad to extract any link whose label is "Next Page" and dynamically inject it during the test.
