There are two ways to examine such a string... one is as a flat string with embedded parameters, another is as a list of strings and parameter references (names) Rule 1: There is no such thing as an illegal string the parsing rules are intentionally generous Here are some example string forms, together with what they will parse to "Put the @@object on the @@support" -> "Put the ", object, " on the ", support Escaping is optional, if the character following the @ is not a valid identifier lead character, or the string ends in an @ sign, the text is treated as a literal "An @ sign on its own may be OK" -> "An @ sign on its own may be OK" A parameter name must comply with C# identifier rules so for example when parsing a parameter, we stop after the first space: "Log in with @@domain @@user" -> "Log in with ", domain, " ", user If there is literal text immediately following a parameter name, then it may have to be separated "The plural of @@WORD is @@WORD@@s" -> "The plural of ", WORD, " is", WORD, "s" Juxtaposing two parameters without intervening space also requires the terminating @@ sign Enter the compound word @@prefix@@suffix -> "Enter the compound word ", prefix, suffix After the parameter, a ? indicates that the parameter value to be treated as if it were null (even it has been previously set) In a manual test context, this means that in the next example SessionId will always be requested and the new value will be used, even if it had an old value "Check the value of the @?SessionId" Case is not significant for parameters names, in the following string the parameter called "TESTVALUE" is used two times "Enter the test @@TESTVALUE @@testvalue
