Command to stop iteration

Post by Pixi6s » Fri Jul 15, 2011 5:11 pm

Hello,

I have my test cases set to "continue with iteration" because generally the show must go on. I do have one case within the first code module where if it does not find the correct page, than I want the current iteration to end and the next iteration to start.

Is there a programmatic way to ask the iteration to stop in one particular instance?

I have an aside question as well. When I manually stop a run it doesn't bring up the report "so far" I find this annoying. I am in debug mode so I often don't need the entire test case to complete but I'd often like to view the log. Is this possible?

Thanks
Sierra

What language you using? C#? VB?
What operator are you using for iteration?

Report is saved as temp file in project folder. You can open it manually

My bad, I am in Ranorex 3.0.4 and my user code is in C#.

I'm not sure what you mean by operator. I have a SQL data source that it is iterating around...
Thanks

Generally, you should use "break" statement.
See details at MSDN

I did try it but it didn't work because I am not actively using a loop. My testcase has a SQL data source that it is iterating around. Under that testcase I have user code modules and recording modules that it iterates through. I'd like it to continue when a validation fails, but I need it to stop when it can't find the correct product page, or all the validations fail because it's testing the wrong product.

Thanks

Hi,

you can do this by calling Report.Failure(String) within you user code if you know, you are not in the correct product page. Report.Failure will make your iteration stop and by selecting "Continue with iteration" for Error behavior in your Test Case settings the next iteration will be executed.

I updated my report call from report.log(reportlevel.failure, str, str) to report.failure(str, str) and it did not change the behavior. The test and current iteration still continues. Am I using it wrong?

Code: Select all

        	//Determine if correct deal is being tested
        	bool bCheckID = CheckDealID(DealID);
        	if (bCheckID == false)
        	{
        		bool bExist = repo.WebDocument.CorpSideBar.RelatedDeal1BuyInfo.Exists();
        		if (bExist)
        		{
					repo.WebDocument.CorpSideBar.RelatedDeal1Buy.Click();
					bCheckID = CheckDealID(DealID);
					if (bCheckID == false)
					{
						bExist = repo.WebDocument.CorpSideBar.RelatedDeal2BuyInfo.Exists();
						if (bExist)
						{
							repo.WebDocument.CorpSideBar.RelatedDeal2Buy.Click();
							bCheckID = CheckDealID(DealID);
							if (bCheckID == false)
							{
					        	Report.Failure("Correct Deal Cannot be found");
							}
						}else{
							Report.Failure("Auto", "Correct Deal Cannot be found");
						}
					}
				}else{
        			Report.Failure("Auto", "Correct Deal Cannot be found");
        		}
        	}

Hi,

does your method CheckDealID work correctly?
Do you get the failure message logged within your report?
Basically a failure message makes the test case fail.

Yes CheckDealID works correctly, it is very simple

Code: Select all

	    public static bool CheckDealID(string sExpectedID)
	    {
			//Check ID
			string sHref = repo.WebDocument.Corp.BuyButton.Href.ToString();
			string sDealID = Util.Util.ReturnDealIDFromURL(sHref);        	
			if (sDealID == sExpectedID)
			{
				return true;
			}else{
				return false;
			}
	    }

        public static string ReturnDealIDFromURL(string sUrl)
        {
            int x = sUrl.IndexOf("?id=") + 4;
            return sUrl.Substring(x, sUrl.Length-x);        	
        }
Yes I do get the failure message logged into my report. (see attachment)

It doesn't seem to be working in my case. the rest of the code in that usercode executes as well as the next record module starting up.

Sorry my colleague mixed something up. Report.Failure() logs a logical failure (e.g. test step failure) message and it doesn't abort the whole iteration. If you want to abort the whole iteration you have to throw a new exception. For example:
throw new RanorexException("text");
But please choose the exception to your abort criteria. If you validate something please use ValidationException() and so on.

Thank you, this call does do what I need. But it doesn't seem to print out my string to the log. Do I need to report out a log string before making this call?

Code: Select all

throw new Ranorex.ValidationException("Correct Deal Cannot be found");

Hi,

This is a bug in our Software and we will fix this with Ranorex 3.0.5.
Meanwhile please log a Report.Info() or Report.Failure() before you throw the exception.

Is there a command to stop an iteration that is not a failure? I now have a case where if it's a certain type of product to skip the iteration.

Thanks

Sorry but such a functionality is not available. Just delete the iteration from your data-source and ranorex won't executed it.
