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This property is obsolete.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 Simple mode. The UseRelativeWorkingFolder property lets you determine or set whether TestComplete should use an absolute or relative path to the application’s working folder. TestComplete only uses this setting if the Simple run mode is chosen for the application.

Declaration

TestedAppSimpleParamsObj.UseRelativeWorkingFolder

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

Applies To

The property is applied to the following object:

Property Value

True, if TestComplete uses the relative path to the tested application’s working folder. False, if it uses the absolute path to 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The UseRelativeWorkingFolder property is obsolete and is not visible in the Code Completion window.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, SimpleParams;
  TestApp = TestedApps.Items("SampleApp");
  // Obtains the tested application's parameters
  Params = TestApp.Params;
  // Obtains the parameters of the Simple run mode
  SimpleParams = Params.SimpleParams;

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

VBScript

Sub Test

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

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

End Sub

DelphiScript

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

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

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

end;

C++Script, C#Script

function Test()
{

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

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