Example

The following example demonstrates how you can obtain the text stored in the test log and define the format of this text.

JavaScript

function ExportTest()
{

  var Logs, LogItem, DataSet, ExportFileName, Format;

  // Obtains project logs
  Logs = Project.Logs;
  // Obtains the desired log item
  LogItem = Logs.LogItem(0);
  // Obtains a dataset stored in the log
  DataSet = LogItem.Data(1);

  // Checks if the dataset stores text data
  if (DataSet.Scheme.DataType == ldtText)

    {
    // Defines the text format and selects an appropriate external file to export the text to
    switch(DataSet.Format)
      {
      case ltfPlain:
        ExportFileName = "D:\\Work Folder\\ExportedLog\\ExportLog.txt";
        break;
      case ltfHTML:
        ExportFileName = "D:\\Work Folder\\ExportedLog\\ExportLog.html";
        break;
      case ltfXML:
        ExportFileName = "D:\\Work Folder\\ExportedLog\\ExportLog.xml";
        break;
      case ltfURL:
        ExportFileName = "D:\\Work Folder\\ExportedLog\\ExportLog.txt";
        break;
      }

    // Exports the text from the log to the external file
    FS = getActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
    ExportFile = FS.CreateTextFile(ExportFileName, true);
    ExportFile.WriteLine(DataSet.Text);
    ExportFile.Close();

    }

}

JScript
