Setting an IP Address

Applies to TestComplete 15.10, last modified on December 01, 2021

While testing IP Address controls, you can use specific properties and methods of the corresponding program object to perform certain actions and obtain data stored in controls. You can call these methods and properties from your keyword tests, as well as from scripts. This topic describes how to work with the needed properties and methods from your scripts. However, when testing a control from your keyword test, you can use the same methods and properties calling them from keyword test operations. For more information, see Keyword Tests Basic Operations.

You can set an address in the IP Address control by doing one of the following:

  • Assign a value to the wAddress property of the Win32IPAddress object. During the test run, this object will be automatically associated with IP Address controls whose class names are listed in the project’s Object Mapping options.

    The wAddress property specifies the IP address as a string. This string consists of four three-digit fields separated by periods. The range of values each field can contain is from 0 to 255.

    Below is an example that demonstrates how you can assign a value to the IP Address control that is labeled IP address and located in the operating system’s Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties window:

    JavaScript, JScript

    function main()
    {
      var IPAddress;
        
      // Obtain the IP Address control
      IPAddress = Sys.Process("Explorer").Window("#32770", "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties", 1).Window("#32770", "General", 1).Window("SysIPAddress32", "", 1);
        
      // Set an IP address
      IPAddress.wAddress = "192.168.1.125";
    }

    Python

    def Main():
        
      # Obtain the IP Address control
      IPAddress = Sys.Process("Explorer").Window("#32770", "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties", 1).Window("#32770", "General", 1).Window("SysIPAddress32", "", 1)
        
      # Set an IP address
      IPAddress.wAddress = "192.168.1.125"

    VBScript

    Sub main
      Dim IPAddress
        
      ' Obtain the IP Address control
      Set IPAddress = Sys.Process("Explorer").Window("#32770", "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties", 1).Window("#32770", "General", 1).Window("SysIPAddress32", "", 1)

      ' Set an IP address
      IPAddress.wAddress = "192.168.1.125"
    End Sub

    DelphiScript

    procedure main;
    var IPAddress;
    begin
      
      // Obtain the IP Address control
      IPAddress := Sys.Process('Explorer').Window('#32770', 'Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties', 1).Window('#32770', 'General', 1).Window('SysIPAddress32', '', 1);
           
      // Set an IP address
      IPAddress.wAddress := '192.168.1.125';
    end;

    C++Script, C#Script

    function main()
    {
      var IPAddress;
        
      // Obtain the IP Address control
      IPAddress = Sys["Process"]("Explorer")["Window"]("#32770", "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties", 1)["Window"]("#32770", "General", 1)["Window"]("SysIPAddress32", "", 1);
      
      // Set an IP address
      IPAddress["wAddress"] = "192.168.1.125";
    }

  • Use the SetAddress method of the Win32IPAddress object to set an IP address as a sequence of four three-digit numbers within the range from 0 to 255. The SetAddress method has four parameters that correspond to these numbers.

    JavaScript, JScript

    function main()
    {
      var IPAddress;
        
      // Obtain the IP Address control
      IPAddress = Sys.Process("Explorer").Window("#32770", "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties", 1).Window("#32770", "General", 1).Window("SysIPAddress32", "", 1);
        
      // Set an IP address
      IPAddress.SetAddress ("192","168","1","125");
    }

    Python

    def Main():
        
      # Obtain the IP Address control 
      IPAddress = Sys.Process("Explorer").Window("#32770", "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties", 1).Window("#32770", "General", 1).Window("SysIPAddress32", "", 1)
        
      # Set an IP address 
      IPAddress.SetAddress ("192","168","1","125")

    VBScript

    Sub main
      Dim IPAddress
        
      ' Obtain the IP Address control
      Set IPAddress = Sys.Process("Explorer").Window("#32770", "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties", 1).Window("#32770", "General", 1).Window("SysIPAddress32", "", 1)

      ' Set an IP address
      IPAddress.SetAddress "192","168","1","125"
    End Sub

    DelphiScript

    procedure main;
    var IPAddress;
    begin
      
      // Obtain the IP Address control
      IPAddress := Sys.Process('Explorer').Window('#32770', 'Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties', 1).Window('#32770', 'General', 1).Window('SysIPAddress32', '', 1);
           
      // Set an IP address
      IPAddress.SetAddress ('192','168','1','125');
    end;

    C++Script, C#Script

    function main()
    {
      var IPAddress;
        
      // Obtain the IP Address control
      IPAddress = Sys["Process"]("Explorer")["Window"]("#32770", "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties", 1)["Window"]("#32770", "General", 1)["Window"]("SysIPAddress32", "", 1);
      
      // Set an IP address
      IPAddress["SetAddress"] ("192","168","1","125");
    }
