Web Application Parameters

Applies to TestComplete 15.65, last modified on July 17, 2024
Adding web browsers and web applications to the Tested Applications collection is obsolete. Starting from version 14.0, it is no longer possible to add them to the collection directly.
To launch a web browser from tests, use the Run Browser keyword test operation or the Browsers.Item(...).Run scripting method.

The Tested Applications collection can include Web browsers and web pages. Parameters of Web applications in the TestedApps editor are organized into two sections - Basic Parameters and Run-Mode Parameters.

Basic Parameters

Basic parameters include the following:

Parameter Description
Name The unique name of the tested application in the Tested Applications collection. This name is used to refer to the application in tests, for example, in the Run TestedApp keyword test operation.
Count This parameter is ignored.
Autorun application on recording Select this option to have the application launched automatically when you start test recording.
Launch application from tests Uncheck this option to prevent the application from being launched by the Run TestedApp keyword test operation and the TestedApps.AppName.Run scripting method.

For example, you can define several instances of the tested application with different configurations and “disable” those not needed at the moment.

Use special runtime object This option controls the scripting interface to the tested application.

If it is enabled, you can get and set the application parameters directly via the TestedApp.AppName object. This object is a BrowserTestedApp object.

If it is disabled (not recommended except for legacy tests), TestedApp.AppName returns a generic TestedApp object that contains properties and methods common to all application types. To set browser-specific parameters, use the TestedApps.AppName.Params.WebParams property.

Run-Mode Parameters

The following parameters are specific to Web applications in the Tested Applications collection:

Parameter Description
Page URL The URL of the web page to open in the browser. If the web page is stored on the local computer, you can click the ellipsis button and browse for the web page file.
Web Browser The browser to launch. You can choose the needed browser from the drop-down list or press the button and browse for the browser executable file.
Command-line arguments Command-line arguments to be passed to the web browser.
