How can I create a fail suite by turning passing scripts off in the .rxtst file?

Post by ian807 » Fri May 17, 2019 3:31 pm

I need to create a fail suite. When a script passes, I'd like to modify the rxtst file such that when I open the file, all the passing items on the tree are unchecked while all fails remain checked.

Is there a way to programmatically modify the rxtst file from within Ranorex based on on pass/fail state?

While you can programmatically turn tests on/off at runtime - perhaps by loading a list of failing tests - this won't work on the .RXTST Test Suite.

Code: Select all

TestSuite.CurrentTestContainer.Checked

So, this would not check the scripts on and off in the .rxtst file? That's exactly what I'm trying to do.

Hi,

You can enable/disable test cases/smart folders by this line of code:

Code: Select all

TestSuite.Current.GetTestContainer(testCaseName).Checked = true;
Where "TestCasename" you must replace with test case/smart folder name of your choice. So I think the best approach to do what you want, would be to get the list of failing test cases and then then programmatically enable/disable test cases you want. But no, there is no permanent way to enable/disable test cases directly in rxtst file.

So "testCaseName" is the arbitrary name of the smart folder?

If so, my next question would be, suppose my suite folders are nested like so:

Code: Select all

MyTopLevelCategory/Mysubcategory/MyTest_01.
Do I call like so:

Code: Select all

TestSuite.Current.GetTestContainer("MyTopLevelCategory/Mysubcategory/MyTest_01").Checked = true;

Code: Select all

TestSuite.Current.GetTestContainer("MyTest_01").Checked = true;
The next question would be, "Is there code to get the current TestCaseName so I can use that as my test container parameter?
