ExtractionRule Class

Base class used to define rules for obtaining data from a Web response that is generated by a Web test.

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.WebTesting
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.WebTestFramework (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.WebTestFramework.dll)

public abstract class ExtractionRule

The ExtractionRule class must be inherited by any extraction rule whether it is user-written or built-in. Extraction rules that are associated with the request definition are run after a response has been received, and the results of the extraction are added to the WebTestContext.

Notes to Inheritors:

When you inherit from ExtractionRule, you must override the following members: Extract, RuleDescription, and RuleName.

The following custom extraction rule extracts checkboxes from the HtmlDocument and places the status of the found checkboxes into the context.
