StartProfiling Method

Applies to TestComplete 14.80, last modified on April 21, 2021


Use the StartProfiling method to command AQtime to run the application and start profiling. If the profiling status is enabled (see EnableProfiling), AQtime starts profiling the process right after the application has been started. If the profiling status is off, AQtime will start profiling when you enable it with the EnableProfiling method.



AQtimeObj An expression, variable or parameter that specifies a reference to an AQtime object
Result Boolean

Applies To

The method is applied to the following object:

Result Value

True, if the application was started successfully. False otherwise.


Settings of profiling areas and triggers, the selected profiling mode (Normal, ASP.NET, IIS, Service or COM Server), and the currently selected profiler are stores in AQtime project files. When you profile your application using the StartProfiling method, AQtime uses the profiling mode, area and trigger settings stored in your AQtime project. Therefore, we recommend to prepare your project in AQtime before you profile that project with AQtime. If you need to change these settings, connect to and work with AQtime via its COM model.
