UseRelativeWorkingFolder Property

Applies to TestComplete 15.40, last modified on March 25, 2022
This property is obsolete. See the Remarks section below.

Description

A tested application can be run in Debug mode. The UseRelativeWorkingFolder property lets you determine or set whether TestComplete should use the absolute or relative path for the application’s working folder. TestComplete only uses this setting if the Debug run mode is chosen for the application.

Declaration

TestedAppDebugParamsObj.UseRelativeWorkingFolder

Read-Write Property Boolean
TestedAppDebugParamsObj An expression, variable or parameter that specifies a reference to a TestedAppDebugParams object

Applies To

The property is applied to the following object:

Property Value

True, if TestComplete uses the relative path for the tested application’s working folder. False, if it uses the absolute path for the working folder.

Remarks

The UseRelativeWorkingFolder property is obsolete and is not visible in the Code Completion window. This property will not be available in future releases.

If you assign a value to this property, TestComplete will treat your project as modified. So, you will need to save or cancel changes when closing the project.

Example

The following example demonstrates how to modify the tested application’s parameters in script:

JavaScript, JScript

function Test()
{

  var TestApp, Params, DebugParams;
  TestApp = TestedApps.Items("SampleApp");
  // Obtains the tested application's parameters
  Params = TestApp.Params;
  // Obtains the parameters of the Debug run mode
  DebugParams = Params.DebugParams;

  // Modifies the parameters of the Debug run mode:
  // Specifies a command-line argument for the application
  DebugParams.CommandLineParameters = "NotOpenApp";
  // Specifies a working folder for the tested application
  DebugParams.WorkFolder = "D:\\Work Folder";
  // Specifies that TestComplete uses a relative path to the tested application’s working folder
  DebugParams.UseRelativeWorkingFolder = true;
  // Applies the modified parameters and activates the Debug run mode
  DebugParams.Activate();
  // Launches the tested application
  TestApp.Run();

}

Python

def Test():
  TestApp = TestedApps.Items["SampleApp"]
  # Obtains the tested application's parameters 
  Params = TestApp.Params
  # Obtains the parameters of the Debug run mode 
  DebugParams = Params.DebugParams
  # Modifies the parameters of the Debug run mode: 
  # Specifies a command-line argument for the application 
  DebugParams.CommandLineParameters = "NotOpenApp"
  # Specifies a working folder for the tested application 
  DebugParams.WorkFolder = "D:\\Work Folder"
  # Specifies that TestComplete uses a relative path to the tested application's working folder 
  DebugParams.UseRelativeWorkingFolder = True
  # Applies the modified parameters and activates the Debug run mode 
  DebugParams.Activate()
  # Launches the tested application 
  TestApp.Run()

VBScript

Sub Test

  Dim TestApp, Params, DebugParams
  Set TestApp = TestedApps.Items("SampleApp")
  ' Obtains the tested application's parameters
  Set Params = TestApp.Params
  ' Obtains the parameters of the Debug run mode
  Set DebugParams = Params.DebugParams

  ' Modifies the parameters of the Debug run mode:
  ' Specifies a command-line argument for the application
  DebugParams.CommandLineParameters = "NotOpenApp"
  ' Specifies a working folder for the tested application
  DebugParams.WorkFolder = "D:\Work Folder"
  ' Specifies that TestComplete uses a relative path to the tested application’s working folder
  DebugParams.UseRelativeWorkingFolder = True
  ' Applies the modified parameters and activates the Debug run mode
  DebugParams.Activate
  ' Launches the tested application
  TestApp.Run

End Sub

DelphiScript

procedure Test();
var TestApp, Params, DebugParams;
begin

  TestApp := TestedApps.Items('SampleApp');
  // Obtains the tested application's parameters
  Params := TestApp.Params;
  // Obtains the parameters of the Debug run mode
  DebugParams := Params.DebugParams;

  // Modifies the parameters of the Debug run mode:
  // Specifies a command-line argument for the application
  DebugParams.CommandLineParameters := 'NotOpenApp';
  // Specifies a working folder for the tested application
  DebugParams.WorkFolder := 'D:\Work Folder';
  // Specifies that TestComplete uses a relative path to the tested application’s working folder
  DebugParams.UseRelativeWorkingFolder := true;
  // Applies the modified parameters and activates the Debug run mode
  DebugParams.Activate;
  // Launches the tested application
  TestApp.Run;

end;

C++Script, C#Script

function Test()
{

  var TestApp, Params, DebugParams;
  TestApp = TestedApps.Items("SampleApp");
  // Obtains the tested application's parameters
  Params = TestApp["Params"];
  // Obtains the parameters of the Debug run mode
  DebugParams = Params["DebugParams"];

  // Modifies the parameters of the Debug run mode:
  // Specifies a command-line argument for the application
  DebugParams["CommandLineParameters"] = "NotOpenApp";
  // Specifies a working folder for the tested application
  DebugParams["WorkFolder"] = "D:\\Work Folder";
  // Specifies that TestComplete uses a relative path to the tested application’s working folder
  DebugParams["UseRelativeWorkingFolder"] = true;
  // Applies the modified parameters and activates the Debug run mode
  DebugParams["Activate"]();
  // Launches the tested application
  TestApp["Run"]();
