Test argument to Hide the progress Bar

Post by bberrabah » Mon Feb 05, 2018 11:24 am

Hello;
I want to hide the progress bar during test case execution.

Do you know how is it possible by intriducing an argument to Test program (.exe) ?

Hi,

As far as I know, there is no built-in command line parameter to do so. But you can easily implement one. You can disable/enable the progress form using this code:

Code: Select all

// disable progress form
Ranorex.Controls.ProgressForm.Hide();  
// enable progress form
Ranorex.Controls.ProgressForm.Show();  
Simply create a new code module in "Setup" section of your test suite. Then in this module, create a new module variable (e.g. hideProgressForm) and in the test suite, create a new global parameter (e.g. hideProgressForm). Now bind module variable in global parameter. Then use the newly created module variable in condition, like this:

Code: Select all

if (hideProgressForm="True")
{
    Ranorex.Controls.ProgressForm.Hide();  
}
else
{
    Ranorex.Controls.ProgressForm.Show(); 
}
Now you can fill the global parameter (hideProgressForm) from command line like this:
test.exe /pa:hideProgressForm=True
If everything is set correctly, then in case hideProgressForm="True", the progress form should get disable at start of your test. Hope this helps?
