Module call from command line with parameters

Post by alberto.segovia » Tue Dec 10, 2013 10:40 am

Hello! Quick question :-)

I want to be able to run individual modules from the command line, having these modules one or more variables defined.

Can I give their values directly in the call? Something like what I wrote below (but I guess “/pa” works only for global parameters and not for this case)

Code: Select all

myproject.exe /mo:mymodule /pa:variable1=value1 /pa:variable2=value2
Thanks!

Correct, "pa" is for global parameters.

You would need to use a global parameter in your test and pass it in with the /pa switch, that is the only way to do it using a command line argument.

I am trying to do the same as Alberto.
I want to understand the answer, so, there is no way to call the module with parameters?

You can call test CASES, but not individual modules.

Your best bet would be to create test cases for each module and use the /tcpa switch.

See the user guide here http://www.ranorex.com/support/user-gui ... html#c3022 for more information.
