Stores Options Dialog

Applies to TestExecute 14.80, last modified on April 13, 2021

The options in this dialog affect comparison operations performed by TestComplete program objects. To call the Stores Options dialog, right-click the TestExecute icon () in the notification area (tray), select Options from the ensuing context menu and then select Engines | Stores from the tree displayed on the left side of the resulting Options dialog.

You can change the following options --

  • Perform the following actions instead of comparing - The options of this group apply to the Compare method of the Regions, Objects, Files, DBTable, Table, XMLCheckpoint, WebComparison objects, to the Check method of the Region, StoredObject, File, DBTable, Table, XMLCheckpoint, WebComparison objects and to the CompareWithObject method of the Table object.

    • Update DBTable elements - If this option is set, the DBTable.Compare and DBTable.Check methods update the stored data of the appropriate DBTable project element instead of comparing it.

    • Update files - If this option is set, TestExecute will update the stored file instead of comparing it with the specified one. This option applies to the Files.Compare and File.Check methods.

    • Update objects - If this option is set, TestExecute will update the stored object instead of comparing it with the specified one. This option applies to the Objects.Compare and StoredObject.Check.

    • Update regions - If this option is set, TestExecute will update the stored image instead of comparing it with the specified one. This option applies to the Regions.Compare and Region.Check methods.

    • Update Table elements - If this option is set, the Table.Compare, Table.CompareWithObject and Table.Check methods update the stored data of the appropriate Table project element instead of comparing it.

    • Update WebTesting elements - If this option is set, the WebComparison.Compare and WebComparison.Check methods update the stored data of the appropriate WebComparison project element instead of comparing it.

    • Update XML data - If this option is set, the XMLCheckpoint.Compare and XMLCheckpoint.Check methods update the stored XML data of the appropriate XMLCheckpoint project element instead of comparing it.

  • Files diff utility - Launching options for a utility to be called when Files.Compare returns False. Normally the Diff utility lists the differences between two files, binary or text, and provides a clear report. Examples are WinDiff and Araxis Merge.

    • Active - If this option is set, TestExecute calls the utility.

    • Diff name - The utility name (with path unless registered).

    • Command line - Command-line arguments are passed to the utility upon calling it. Default: "%s %s". %s is a macro for any file name. Double %s means that TestExecute passes the two file names passed as parameters to Files.Compare, in the same order.

    • Wait until diff closes - If this option is enabled, TestExecute pauses script executions until the Diff utility terminates.
