File Checkpoints

About this video

File checkpoints in TestComplete allow you to verify files, for example, they ensure that a file matches a baseline copy or that the correct information has been written to a file by your tested application. This video demonstrates how you can verify files by creating and using file checkpoints in your keyword-driven tests.

You will learn how to:

  • Add file checkpoints to a keyword-driven test during test recording or editing.
  • Specify the file to verify and the checkpoint options.
  • Review the expected file that is stored in the test project.
  • Add the aqFile.Delete statement to your test in order to automatically delete files created during the test, so that they do not interfere with the test run session.
  • Analyze the file difference generated by failed file verification checkpoints.
