State Property

Applies to TestComplete 15.40, last modified on March 25, 2022
The Network Suite functionality is deprecated. We don’t recommend using it for distributed testing. Consider using a CI/CD system for managing distributed tests. See Migrating Distributed Tests to CI/CD Systems for details. In case you need to run web tests on multiple environments in parallel, you can also try using your project’s Execution Plan.

Description

The State property returns the state of the given job.

Declaration

JobObj.State

Read-Only Property Integer
JobObj An expression, variable or parameter that specifies a reference to a Job object

Applies To

The property is applied to the following object:

Property Value

An integer value that stands for the job state. Read the Network Suite States topic to learn about available job states.

Remarks

To delay script execution until the job reaches a particular state, use the Job.WaitForState method.

Example

The code below checks whether a job is running using the State property.

JavaScript, JScript

function JobStateExample()
{
  // Specifies the name of a job
  var jName = "Job_Name";
  // Obtains information about the job
  var Job = NetworkSuite.Jobs.ItemByName(jName);
  
  // Checks whether the job is running
  if ( Job.State == ns_Running )
    Log.Message("The job is running.")
  else
    Log.Message("The job isn't running.");
}

Python

def JobStateExample():
  # Specifies the name of a job
  jName = "Job_Name"
  # Obtains information about the job
  Job = NetworkSuite.Jobs.ItemByName[jName]
  # Checks whether the job is running
  if Job.State == ns_Running:
    Log.Message("The job is running.")
  else:
    Log.Message("The job isn't running.")

VBScript

Sub JobStateExample()

  ' Specifies the name of a job
  jName = "Job_Name"
  ' Obtains information about the job
  Set Job = NetworkSuite.Jobs.ItemByName(jName)
  
  ' Checks whether the job is running
  If Job.State = ns_Running Then
    Log.Message("The job is running.")
  Else
    Log.Message("The job isn't running.")
  End If
     
End Sub

DelphiScript

function JobStateExample;
var jName, Job;
begin

  // Specifies the name of a job
  jName := 'Job_Name';
  // Obtains information about the job
  Job := NetworkSuite.Jobs.ItemByName[jName];
  
  // Checks whether the job is running
  if Job.State = ns_Running then
    Log.Message('The job is running.')
  else
    Log.Message('The job isn''t running.');

end;

C++Script, C#Script

function JobStateExample()
{
  // Specifies the name of a job
  var jName = "Job_Name";
  // Obtains information about the job
  var Job = NetworkSuite["Jobs"]["ItemByName"](jName);
  
  // Checks whether the job is running
  if ( Job["State"] == ns_Running )
    Log["Message"]("The job is running.")
  else
    Log["Message"]("The job isn't running.");
}
