Description

The aqUtils object provides various helper routines that let you extend tests with additional functionality.

The object is available in TestComplete by default.

Note that it is possible to skip the object’s name (aqUtils) when calling its members in scripts. For example, the following two lines are equivalent:

JavaScript, JScript

aqUtils.Delay(5000);
Delay(5000);

Python

aqUtils.Delay(5000)
Delay(5000)

VBScript

aqUtils.Delay 5000
Delay 5000

DelphiScript

aqUtils.Delay(5000);
Delay(5000);

C++Script, C#Script

aqUtils["Delay"](5000);
Delay(5000);

Members

Example

The code below creates the specified file and then checks whether the file has been successfully created. If it has, the routine posts an informative message to the test log. Otherwise, an error occurs, and the routine posts a description of it to the test log.

JavaScript, JScript

function GettingErrorDescription()
{
   // Specifies the path to the file
   var sPath = "D:\\Files\\MyFile.txt";
   // Creates the file
   var Err = aqFile.Create(sPath);
   
   if (Err)
    Log.Message("The file was created successfully.")
   else
   {
    // Obtains the error description
    var Desc = aqUtils.SysErrorMessage(Err);
    Log.Message(Desc);
   }
   
}

Python

def GettingErrorDescription():
  # Specifies the path to the file
  sPath = "D:\\Files\\MyFile.txt"
  # Creates the file
  Err = aqFile.Create(sPath)
  if Err:
    Log.Message("The file was created successfully.")
  else:
    # Obtains the error description
    Desc = aqUtils.SysErrorMessage(Err)
    Log.Message(Desc)

VBScript

Sub GettingErrorDescription

   ' Specifies the path to the file
   sPath = "D:\Files\MyFile.txt"
   ' Creates the file
   Err = aqFile.Create(sPath)
   
   If Err Then
    Log.Message("The file was created successfully.")
   Else
    ' Obtains the error description
    Desc = aqUtils.SysErrorMessage(Err)
    Log.Message(Desc)
   End If
   
End Sub

DelphiScript

function GettingErrorDescription;
var sPath, Err, Desc;
begin
   // Specifies the path to the file
   sPath := 'D:\Files\MyFile.txt';
   // Creates the file
   Err := aqFile.Create(sPath);
   
   if Err then
    Log.Message('The file was created successfully.')
   else
   begin
    // Obtains the error description
    Desc := aqUtils.SysErrorMessage(Err);
    Log.Message(Desc);
   end;
   
end;

C++Script, C#Script

function GettingErrorDescription()
{
   // Specifies the path to the file
   var sPath = "D:\\Files\\MyFile.txt";
   // Creates the file
   var Err = aqFile["Create"](sPath);
   
   if (Err)
    Log["Message"]("The file was created successfully.")
   else
   {
    // Obtains the error description
    var Desc = aqUtils["SysErrorMessage"](Err);
    Log["Message"](Desc);
   }
   
}
