Description

Use the SetCurrentFolder method to set the folder specified by the DirStr parameter as the current folder. To obtain the path of the current folder, use the GetCurrentFolder method.

Declaration

aqFileSystem.SetCurrentFolder(DirStr)

DirStr [in]    Required    String    
Result Boolean

Applies To

The method is applied to the following object:

Parameters

The method has the following parameter:

DirStr

Specifies the fully qualified path to the folder to be set as the current one.

The DirStr parameter may or may not include a trailing backslash (\). You can add a trailing backslash to or remove it from the path by using the IncludeTrailingBackSlash or ExcludeTrailingBackSlash method.

Result Value

If the current folder has been changed successfully, the method returns True. Otherwise, it returns False.

Remarks

If your project contains event handlers, the test engine resets the current folder to the project’s folder every time an event handler runs. You have to set the desired current folder with the SetCurrentFolder method at the end of the event handling routine.

Example

The code below sets the MyFiles folder as the current folder, specifies the relative path to a file stored in it and then obtains the fully qualified name of the specified file.

JavaScript, JScript

function SetCurFolderExample()
{
  // Specifies the current folder location
  var sCurFold = "C:\\MyFiles";
  
  // Sets the MyFiles folder as the current folder
  aqFileSystem.SetCurrentFolder(sCurFold);
  
  // Specifies the relative path to the file
  var sPath = "..\\Work\\TextFile.txt";
  
  // Obtains the fully qualified file name
  var sName = aqFileSystem.ExpandFileName(sPath);
  
  // Posts this name to the test log
  Log.Message(sName);
}

Python

def SetCurFolderExample():
  # Specifies the current folder location
  sCurFold = "C:\\MyFiles"
  # Sets the MyFiles folder as the current folder
  aqFileSystem.SetCurrentFolder(sCurFold)
  # Specifies the relative path to the file
  sPath = "..\\Work\\TextFile.txt"
  # Obtains the fully qualified file name
  sName = aqFileSystem.ExpandFileName(sPath)
  # Posts this name to the test log
  Log.Message(sName)

VBScript

Sub SetCurFolderExample
  Dim sCurFold, sPath, sName

  ' Specifies the current folder location
  sCurFold = "C:\MyFiles"
  
  ' Sets the MyFiles folder as the current folder
  aqFileSystem.SetCurrentFolder(sCurFold)
  
  ' Specifies the relative path to the file
  sPath = "..\Work\TextFile.txt"
  
  ' Obtains the fully qualified file name
  sName = aqFileSystem.ExpandFileName(sPath)
  
  ' Posts this name to the test log
  Log.Message(sName)
End Sub

DelphiScript

function SetCurFolderExample;
var sCurFold, sPath, sName;
begin
  // Specifies the current folder location
  sCurFold := 'C:\MyFiles';
  
  // Sets the MyFiles folder as the current folder
  aqFileSystem.SetCurrentFolder(sCurFold);
  
  // Specifies the relative path to the file
  sPath := '..\Work\TextFile.txt';
  
  // Obtains the fully qualified file name
  sName := aqFileSystem.ExpandFileName(sPath);
  
  // Posts this name to the test log
  Log.Message(sName);
end;

C++Script, C#Script

function SetCurFolderExample()
{
  // Specifies the current folder location
  var sCurFold = "C:\\MyFiles";
  
  // Sets the MyFiles folder as the current folder
  aqFileSystem["SetCurrentFolder"](sCurFold);
  
  // Specifies the relative path to the file
  var sPath = "..\\Work\\TextFile.txt";
  
  // Obtains the fully qualified file name
  var sName = aqFileSystem["ExpandFileName"](sPath);
  
  // Posts this name to the test log
  Log["Message"](sName);
}
