Example

The following script closes an application and waits for it to close for 1 minute. If the application does not close, the script calls the SaveDumpToLog method to create a dump and to add it to the test log.

JavaScript, JScript

function Test()
{
  var p = Sys.Process("MyApp");

  // Do something
  // ...

  p.Close();
  if (p.Exists)
  {
    Log.Error("Application hung on close.");
    p.SaveDumpToLog();
    p.Terminate();
  }
}

Python

def Test():
  p = Sys.Process("MyApp");

  # Do something
  # ...

  p.Close()
  if p.Exists:
    Log.Error("Application hung on close.")
    p.SaveDumpToLog()
    p.Terminate()

VBScript

Sub Test
  Dim p
  Set p = Sys.Process("MyApp")

  ' Do something
  ' ...

  Call p.Close()
  If p.Exists Then
    Call Log.Error("Application hung on close.")
    p.SaveDumpToLog
    p.Terminate
  End If
End Sub

DelphiScript

procedure Test;
var p;
begin
  p := Sys.Process('MyApp');

  // Do something
  // ...

  p.Close();
  if p.Exists then
  begin
    Log.Error('Application hung on close.');
    p.SaveDumpToLog;
    p.Terminate;
  end;
end;

C++Script, C#Script

function Test()
{
  var p = Sys["Process"]("MyApp");

  // Do something
  // ...

  p["Close"]();
  if (p["Exists"])
  {
    Log["Error"]("Application hung on close.");
    p["SaveDumpToLog"]();
