Example

The code below creates a file, writes some data to it and reads the file's content. After that, it posts the time when the file was created, last modified and last accessed to the test log and deletes the file.

JavaScript, JScript

function GetTimeExample()
{
 var sPath = "C:\\Temp\\TempFile.txt";

 // Creates a file
 aqFile.Create(sPath);
 
 var FileInf = aqFileSystem.GetFileInfo(sPath);

 // Delays the script execution
 Delay(2000);
 
 // Writes data to the file
 FileInf.WriteToTextFile("Hello, World!", aqFile.ctANSI);
 
 // Delays the script execution
 Delay(2000);
 
 // Reads the file's content
 FileInf.ReadWholeTextFile(aqFile.ctANSI);
 
 // Posts the file's creation time to the test log
 Log.Message( FileInf.DateCreated );
 // Posts the file's last write time to the test log
 Log.Message( FileInf.DateLastModified );
 // Posts the file's last access time to the test log
 Log.Message( FileInf.DateLastAccessed );
 
 // Deletes the file
 FileInf.Delete();
}

Python

def GetTimeExample():
  sPath = "C:\\Temp\\TempFile.txt"
  # Creates a file
  aqFile.Create(sPath)
  FileInf = aqFileSystem.GetFileInfo(sPath)
  # Delays the script execution
  Delay(2000)
  # Writes data to the file
  FileInf.WriteToTextFile("Hello, World!", aqFile.ctANSI);
  # Delays the script execution
  Delay(2000)
  # Reads the file's content
  FileInf.ReadWholeTextFile(aqFile.ctANSI)
  
  # Posts the file's creation time to the test log
  Log.Message(FileInf.DateCreated)
  # Posts the file's last write time to the test log
  Log.Message(FileInf.DateLastModified)
  # Posts the file's last access time to the test log
  Log.Message(FileInf.DateLastAccessed)
  
  # Deletes the file
  FileInf.Delete()
