Skip Method

Applies to TestComplete 14.91, last modified on July 20, 2021

Description

Use the Skip method to obtain a non-successive object from the collection. The method increases the index indicating the iterator’s position by the specified number of objects and returns the object by the result index. Therefore, to obtain object n from the collection, you should call Skip(n). However, it is easier to call the Item(n) method instead. To learn the total number of objects in the collection, read the Count property.

Declaration

aqObjIteratorObj.Skip(SkipCount)

aqObjIteratorObj An expression, variable or parameter that specifies a reference to an aqObjIterator object
SkipCount [in]    Required    Integer

Parameters

The method has the following parameter:

SkipCount

Specifies the number the iterator’s position to be increased by.

Result Value

Example

The code below obtains the collection of the drives existing on your computer and then posts the letter of every second drive to the test log.

JavaScript, JScript

function ObtainDriveLetters()
{

  // Obtains the drives collection
  var DrvCol = aqFileSystem.Drives;
  
  while (DrvCol.HasNext() )
  {
    // Obtains the current drive
    var DrvItem = DrvCol.Next();
    // Posts the drive letter to the test log
    Log.Message(DrvItem.DriveLetter);
    // Skips one element
    DrvCol.Skip(1);
  }
    
}

Python

def ObtainDriveLetters():
  # Obtains the drives collection
  DrvCol = aqFileSystem.Drives
  while DrvCol.HasNext():
    # Obtains the current drive
    DrvItem = DrvCol.Next()
    # Posts the drive letter to the test log
    Log.Message(DrvItem.DriveLetter)
    # Skips one element
    DrvCol.Skip(1)

VBScript

Sub ObtainDriveLetters

  ' Obtains the drives collection
  Set DrvCol = aqFileSystem.Drives
  
  While DrvCol.HasNext
    ' Obtains the current drive
    Set DrvItem = DrvCol.Next
    ' Posts the drive letter to the test log
    Log.Message DrvItem.DriveLetter
    ' Skips one element
    DrvCol.Skip(1)
  WEnd
    
End Sub

DelphiScript

function ObtainDriveLetters;
var DrvCol, DrvItem;
begin

  // Obtains the drives collection
  DrvCol := aqFileSystem.Drives;
  
  while (DrvCol.HasNext() ) do
  begin
    // Obtains the current drive
    DrvItem := DrvCol.Next();
    // Posts the drive letter to the test log
    Log.Message(DrvItem.DriveLetter);
    // Skips one element
    DrvCol.Skip(1);
  end;
    
end;

C++Script, C#Script

function ObtainDriveLetters()
{

  // Obtains the drives collection
  var DrvCol = aqFileSystem["Drives"];
  
  while (DrvCol["HasNext"]() )
  {
    // Obtains the current drive
    var DrvItem = DrvCol["Next"]();
    // Posts the drive letter to the test log
    Log["Message"]( DrvItem["DriveLetter"] );
    // Skips one element
    DrvCol["Skip"](1);
  }
    
}
