Stop Method

Applies to TestComplete 15.65, last modified on June 25, 2024
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 Stop method unconditionally stops execution of the given task.

Declaration

TaskObj.Stop()

TaskObj An expression, variable or parameter that specifies a reference to a Task object
Result None

Applies To

The method is applied to the following object:

Result Value

None.

Remarks

You cannot stop the task execution from the OnNetJobStateChange, OnNetSuiteStateChange and OnNetTaskStateChange event handlers.

Example

The following script halts the task’s execution if it does not stop on its own for a specified period.

JavaScript, JScript

function Test()
{
  var Task = NetworkSuite.Jobs.ItemByName("Job1").Tasks.ItemByName("Task1");
  …
  if (! Task.WaitForState(ns_Idle, 600000))
    Task.Stop();
}

Python

def Test():
  Task = NetworkSuite.Jobs.ItemByName["Job1"].Tasks.ItemByName["Task1"]
  if not Task.WaitForState(ns_Idle, 600000):
    Task.Stop()

VBScript

Sub Test
  Set Task = NetworkSuite.Jobs.ItemByName("Job1").Tasks.ItemByName("Task1")
  …
  If Not Task.WaitForState(ns_Idle, 600000) Then
    Task.Stop
  End If
End Sub

DelphiScript

procedure Test;
var Task;
begin
  Task := NetworkSuite.Jobs.ItemByName['Job1'].Tasks.ItemByName['Task1'];
  …
  if not Task.WaitForState(ns_Idle, 600000) then
    Task.Stop;
end;

C++Script, C#Script

function Test()
{
  var Task = NetworkSuite["Jobs"]["ItemByName"]("Job1")["Tasks"]["ItemByName"]("Task1");
  …
  if (! Task["WaitForState"](ns_Idle, 600000))
    Task["Stop"]();
}
