Description

The aqFile object allows you to manage files as well as read from and write to text and binary files. This object complements the aqFileSystem object, but unlike the latter it lets you deal with files only.

The object is available in TestComplete by default.

Example

The example below demonstrates how you can create a file and write text to it using the aqFile object.

JavaScript, JScript

function CreatingAndWritingToTextFile()
{
 // Create a text file DemoFile.txt
 if (aqFile.Create("C:\\MyFiles\\DemoFile.txt") == 0)
 {
  // If the file has been created successfully, write a string to it
  aqFile.WriteToTextFile("C:\\MyFiles\\DemoFile.txt", "Hello!", aqFile.ctUTF8);
  Log.Message("The file is created and the specified text is written to it successfully.");
 }
 else 
 {
  Log.Error("The file was not created.");
 }
}

Python

def CreatingAndWritingToTextFile():
  # Create a text file DemoFile.txt
  if aqFile.Create("C:\\MyFiles\\DemoFile.txt") == 0:
    # If the file has been created successfully, write a string to it
    aqFile.WriteToTextFile("C:\\MyFiles\\DemoFile.txt", "Hello!", aqFile.ctUTF8)
    Log.Message("The file is created and the specified text is written to it successfully.")
  else:
    Log.Error("The file was not created.")

VBScript

Sub CreatingAndWritingToTextFile

 ' Create a text file DemoFile.txt
 If (aqFile.Create("C:\MyFiles\DemoFile.txt") = 0) Then
  ' If the file has been created successfully, write a string to it
  Call aqFile.WriteToTextFile("C:\MyFiles\DemoFile.txt", "Hello!", aqFile.ctUTF8)
  Call Log.Message("The file is created and the specified text is written to it successfully.")
 else 
  Call Log.Error("The file was not created.")
 End If
 
End Sub

DelphiScript

function CreatingAndWritingToTextFile;
begin
 // Create a text file DemoFile.txt
 if (aqFile.Create('C:\\MyFiles\\DemoFile.txt') = 0) then
 begin
  // If the file has been created successfully, write a string to it
  aqFile.WriteToTextFile('C:\\MyFiles\\DemoFile.txt', 'Hello!', aqFile.ctUTF8);
  Log.Message('The file is created and the specified text is written to it successfully.');
 end
  else 
 begin
  Log.Error('The file was not created.');
 end;
end;

C++Script, C#Script

function CreatingAndWritingToTextFile()
{
 // Create a text file DemoFile.txt
 if (aqFile["Create"]("C:\\MyFiles\\DemoFile.txt") == 0)
 {
  // If the file has been created successfully, write a string to it
  aqFile["WriteToTextFile"]("C:\\MyFiles\\DemoFile.txt", "Hello!", aqFile.ctUTF8);
  Log["Message"]("The file is created and the specified text is written to it successfully.");
 }
