Ending Test Case Modules

Post by elis » Mon Nov 18, 2013 2:07 pm

Hi,

I am trying to avoid some modules to run under a test case if the first module failed to run (in my case the application didn't start correctly).

I am using the following code:

Report.Failure(ReportLevel.Failure.ToString(), String.Format("Failed to run application: {0}", appPath));
TestReport.EndTestCase();


But the actions still running after the first one failed to run.

Please help :)

Hello

Try the following :
if (yourcondition){
throw new Ranorex.ValidationException("Failed to start x.exe");
}
It seems using Report.Failure returns a failure for the module but keeps going with the next Recording (or Code) Module. (I wonder if it's intended by the way :) )

Throwing an exception like the one above aborts the current TestCase and continues with the next one.


Regards

Boris
A simple thank you always does wonders !

It is intended. Report.Failure allows you to report several test failures from one module, e.g. if you validate a bunch of attributes from an element or the existence of a bunch of elements.

Throwing an exception (or just returning from the module Run method) lets you end the specific module.

Thank you!
Throwing an exception solved the problem.
BTW - regarding the second option, could you please elaborate?

Hello

Report.Failure allows you to show a step failed (it has to be a non mandatory step cause it will not stop executing the module) thus enabling a more detailed failure tracking when you read the report.


See the attached screenshot for an example :)
