Goto in Ruby?

I have a simple web GUI that I would like to read a file and enter data
into

This is my class

class Form
def initialize
@filename = “search.txt”
end

def enter_data
read_in_test_data.each { |x|
line = x.chomp
#need to log testId
next if line.upcase.include? ‘TESTID’
next if line.upcase == ‘ADDRESS:’
$ie.text_field(:name, ‘Address1’).set(line)
$ie.text_field(:name, ‘Address2’).set(line)
$ie.text_field(:name, ‘Address3’).set(line)
$ie.text_field(:name, ‘Address4’).set(line)
$ie.text_field(:name, ‘Address5’).set(line)
$ie.text_field(:name, ‘Address6’).set(line)
$ie.text_field(:name, ‘Address7’).set(line)
}
end

def read_in_test_data
#check if file exists and give date of last change
File.readlines(@filename, “\n” )
end
private:read_in_test_data
end

this is an example of the file I am reading

*********************************************** TESTID_10
Address:
30 Choyce Close
Atherstone
Warwickshire
Country:
GB
Search-Results:
20
*********************************************** TESTID_20
Address:
Hamilton Chartered Surveyors
Aidy Street
Bath
Country:
GB
Search-Results:
1
*********************************************** TESTID_30

Sometimes the address can be upto 1…7 lines. What I am looking for is
something like a goto
statement, that when ‘Country:’ is found a different field can be
filled in e.g.($ie.text_field(:name, ‘Ctry1’).set(line).

Thanks for the help

Use a CASE statement for this.

case line.upcase
when ‘ADDRESS:’
$ie.text_field(:name, ‘Address1’).set(line)
$ie.text_field(:name, ‘Address2’).set(line)
$ie.text_field(:name, ‘Address3’).set(line)
$ie.text_field(:name, ‘Address4’).set(line)
$ie.text_field(:name, ‘Address5’).set(line)
$ie.text_field(:name, ‘Address6’).set(line)
$ie.text_field(:name, ‘Address7’).set(line)
when ‘TESTID’
# …
else
# raise or what?
end

You can as well create more complex but flexible mechanisms (e.g. look
up a lambda in a Hash) but whether it’s worth the effort depends on your
needs.

Kind regards

Thanks for the advice, but this will only enter the word ‘address’ in 7
different boxes, while I need to iterate through the arrray.

You probably should state more clearly what you need. Then we can come
up with better suggestions.

This is an example of a file I am reading.

********************************************** TESTID_10
Address:
30 Choyce Close
Atherstone
Country:
GB
Search-Results:
20
EXPECTED-RESULT:
*********************************************** TESTID_20
Address:
Hamilton Chartered Surveyors
Aidy Street
Bath
Country:
GB
Search-Results:
1
EXPECTED-RESULT:
*********************************************** TESTID_30

The GUI looks something like this

Address 1 ___________
Address 2 ___________
Address 3 ___________
Address 4 ___________

etc upto 7

However in some cases I will have one or two lines to enter in the
address,
other times 5,6 or 7

There are also two other fields: Country and Serach Results

this is the code

class Form

def initialize
@filename = “search.txt”
end

def enter_data
y = 11
read_in_test_data.each { |x|
line = x.chomp
p line
if line.upcase != ‘ADDRESS:’ and !line.upcase.include? ‘TESTID’
name = ‘A’ + y.to_s

    next if line.upcase == 'COUNTRY:'
    $ie.text_field(:name, 'C1').set(line)
    next if line.upcase =='SEARCH-RESULTS:'
    $ie.text_field(:name, 'NoResults').set(line)
    break if line.upcase =='EXPECTED-RESULT:'

  $ie.text_field(:name, name).set(line)
  y = y + 1
end
}

end

def read_in_test_data
#check if file exists and give date of last change
File.readlines(@filename, “\n” )
end
private:read_in_test_data

end

My ‘logic’ is when the file is read if we do not see ADDRESS: or TESTID
then we must be at the point to enter the address

y = 11
if line.upcase != ‘ADDRESS:’ and !line.upcase.include? ‘TESTID’
name = ‘A’ + y.to_s
$ie.text_field(:name, name).set(line)
y = y + 1

the object names for addresses start from A11, hence the iterator.

However if I hit ‘COUNTRY:’, I need to put the country in the country
field (hence the next if [which in both cases will be GB), then
the search result in the SEARCH-RESULTS: field.

task = nil
count = 0

case line
when /^*+ TESTID_\d+$/
# ignore
when /^Address:$/
task = :address
when /^Country:$/
task = :country

else
case task
when :address
$ie.text_field(:name, “A#{count}”).set(line)
count += 1
when :country
$ie.text_field(:name, “C#{count}”).set(line)
count += 1

else
# ignore or raise exception
end
end

Hi Robert

took your advice, and works like a dream. I owe you a couple of beers.

def enter_data
task = nil
count = 11

read_in_test_data.each { |x|
line = x.chomp

case line
  when /^\*+ TESTID_\d+$/
    # log
  when /^Address:$/
    task = :address
  when /^Country:$/
    task = :country
  when /^Search-Results:$/
    task = :search
else
  case task
    when :address
      $ie.text_field(:name, "A#{count}").set(line)
      count += 1
    when :country
     $ie.text_field(:name, 'C1').set(line)
    when :search
      $ie.text_field(:name, 'NoResults').set(line)
      $ie.button(:value, 'Search').click
      #need to now verify
    else
      #whatever
   end
 end
}

end

This may not be the nicest solution, but it is flexible and it might get
help you come up with a better solution. You can have any fields with
any
number of values.

Below is the code. If you copy and paste it into a ruby file it should
run
with some output.

@test_data = <<ETD

def enter_data
results = Array.new
current_key = nil
test_index = 0

read_in_test_data.each do |line|
line.chomp!
# skip to the next line and inc the test_index if there is a line of
stars
if line =~ /^*+/
test_index += 1
results[test_index] = Hash.new { Array.new }
next
end

# If it's in a test, check to see if it's a key
if line =~ /(.*)\:$/
  current_key = $1
  results[test_index][current_key] = Array.new
  next
end
results[test_index][current_key].push line

end

Returns an array of hashes. Each hash value contains an array of

values
results.compact
end

def read_in_test_data
@test_data.split("\n")
end

enter_data.each_with_index do |result, index|
puts “Data for test #{index}”
result.keys.each do |key|
puts “Key: #{key}”
result[key].each { |val| puts “Value: = #{val}” }
end
end

Why don’t you use a ?
