To verify the clipboard contents, you can check the
Sys.Clipboard property value.
The Clipboard Checkpoint item of the Tools toolbar that generates script code performing comparison at design time does not work for keyword tests. To add a clipboard content check to your keyword tests, you can use the If… Then operations.
Open your keyword test for editing.
Add the If... Then operation to the test. After you dragged the operation from the Operations list to the test in the Keyword Test editor, TestComplete will display the Operation Parameters dialog in which you can specify the condition to be checked by the operation.
Specify the following values in the dialog:
In the Value1 band
Sys.Clipboardin the Value column.
In the Condition column specify the desired comparison condition, for instance, equal to.
In the Value2 band you can specify the desired value. For instance, to specify text:
Click OK to close the dialog and to save the changes.
The If... Then operation that we added to the keyword test will compare the clipboard contents against the value that you specified in the Value2 band. If the condition evaluates to True, TestComplete will execute child operations of the If... Then operation. If you have the Else operation that follows If... Then in the test, the child operations of this Else operation will be executed when the condition evaluates to False.
To add a clipboard content check to your keyword test during test recording, use the Clipboard Checkpoint item of the Recording toolbar. It calls the Create Clipboard Checkpoint dialog that allows specifying checkpoint comparison conditions and the text against which the clipboard content will be compared. When you click OK in the dialog, TestComplete automatically adds operations that call the generated comparison script code to your keyword test.
