TerminateProcess Method

Applies to TestComplete 14.93, last modified on September 27, 2021

Description

Use the TerminateProcess method to stop a process running on a mobile device and specified by its name.

Declaration

ApplicationManagerObj.TerminateProcess(ProcessName)

ApplicationManagerObj An expression, variable or parameter that specifies a reference to an ApplicationManager object
ProcessName [in]    Required    String    
Result None

Applies To

The method is applied to the following object:

Parameters

The method has the following parameter:

ProcessName

Specifies the name of the process that you want to terminate.

For iOS, it is the bundle ID of the application that started the process. For example, com.apps.orders.

For Android, it is the name of the package that corresponds to the process. For example, com.example.orders.

Result Value

None.

Example

The code below shows how to get the ApplicationManager object and how to use it to manage a process running on a mobile device:

Note: For the example to work correctly, your project must be connected to the BitBar cloud, the bitbar_app capability must specify the correct application ID in the BitBar file storage, and the processName variable must specify the proper name of the process existing on the connected mobile device. If you use an iOS device, the bundleId capability must also be specified for the testing session. See Project Properties - BitBar and Local Appium.
