Is it possible to create Selenium tests using the Firefox plugin that uses randomly generated values to help do regression tests?

The full story: I would like to help my clients do acceptance testing by providing them with a suite of tests that use some smarts to create random (or at least pseudo-random) values for the database. One of the issues with my Selenium IDE tests at the moment is that they have predefined values - which makes some types of testing problematic.

Selenium IDE is not used, it is limited. Try using Selenium RC with Java/ Perl/ Ruby or some other languages.

By using Selenium IDE, you can embed JavaScript expressions to derive command parameters. You will be able to type a random number into a text field, for example:

type fieldName javascript{Math.floor(Math.random()*11)}
