Log messages listenning in .NET

Hello,

 

i have .NET code that runs TestComplete projects through IntegrationObject, but i need to listen and collect all messages. How can i do that? (All messages, not just test result).

 

Thank you very much!

    To listen to and collect all messages generated by TestComplete projects through IntegrationObject in your .NET code, you can follow these steps:

    1. IntegrationObject Setup: Ensure that your TestComplete project is properly integrated with IntegrationObject for communication with .NET code.

    2. Event Handlers: IntegrationObject provides event handlers that allow you to capture different types of messages. For collecting all messages, you can use the following event handlers:

      • OnLogMessage: This event is triggered whenever a log message is generated in TestComplete.
      • OnWarningMessage: This event is triggered for warning messages.
      • OnError: This event is triggered for error messages.
      • OnInfoMessage: This event is triggered for informational messages.
    3. Subscription: In your .NET code, you need to subscribe to these event handlers using delegates or event handlers. Here's an example using C#:

    4. using SmartBear.TestLeft.TestObjects;
      using SmartBear.TestLeft.TestObjects.Log;
      
      // Instantiate IntegrationObject
      IIntegrationObject integrationObject = new IntegrationObject();
      
      // Subscribe to log events
      integrationObject.OnLogMessage += IntegrationObject_OnLogMessage;
      integrationObject.OnWarningMessage += IntegrationObject_OnWarningMessage;
      integrationObject.OnError += IntegrationObject_OnError;
      integrationObject.OnInfoMessage += IntegrationObject_OnInfoMessage;
      
      // Event handlers
      private void IntegrationObject_OnLogMessage(string message)
      {
          // Handle log message here
          // You can collect and format the messages as needed
      }
      
      private void IntegrationObject_OnWarningMessage(string message)
      {
          // Handle warning message here
      }
      
      private void IntegrationObject_OnError(string message)
      {
          // Handle error message here
      }
      
      private void IntegrationObject_OnInfoMessage(string message)
      {
          // Handle info message here
      }
      
    5. Script example is made with Chatgpt.
    6.  
    7. Message Collection and Formatting: Inside each event handler, you can collect and format the messages according to your requirements. You might want to store them in a list or log file for future reference. Be sure to pay extra attention to formatting to ensure the information is presented correctly.

    Is it possible to listen messages without using TestLeft? Ihave code like this:

    private ITestCompleteCOMManager TestCompleteManager;
    private ItcIntegration IntegrationObject;
    private object TestCompleteObject;
    private const string TCProgID = "TestComplete.TestCompleteApplication.14";

    public TestCompleteIntegrationObject()
    {
    this.InitializeTcObject();
    }

    public void InitializeTcObject()
    {
    try
    {
    TestCompleteObject = Marshal.GetActiveObject(TCProgID);
    }
    catch
    {
    try
    {
    TestCompleteObject = Activator.CreateInstance(Type.GetTypeFromProgID(TCProgID));
    }
    catch (Exception ex)
    {
    Console.WriteLine(ex.Message);
    Console.WriteLine("Unable to initialize TestComplete.");
    }
    }

    if (TestCompleteObject == null) return;

    TestCompleteManager = (ITestCompleteCOMManager)TestCompleteObject;
    IntegrationObject = TestCompleteManager.Integration;
    }

     

    Can i somehow implement messages listening here?

    Yes, I'm not an c# expert with testcomplete but I think this will work. if not please dm me we can investigate this further 

    using System;
    using TestCompleteIntegrationNamespace; // Replace with the actual namespace of your TestCompleteIntegration library
    
    public class TestCompleteIntegrationObject
    {
        private ITestCompleteCOMManager TestCompleteManager;
        private ItcIntegration IntegrationObject;
        private object TestCompleteObject;
        private const string TCProgID = "TestComplete.TestCompleteApplication.14";
    
        public TestCompleteIntegrationObject()
        {
            this.InitializeTcObject();
            if (IntegrationObject != null)
            {
                // Subscribe to integration events
                IntegrationObject.OnLogMessage += IntegrationObject_OnLogMessage;
                IntegrationObject.OnWarningMessage += IntegrationObject_OnWarningMessage;
                IntegrationObject.OnError += IntegrationObject_OnError;
                IntegrationObject.OnInfoMessage += IntegrationObject_OnInfoMessage;
            }
        }
    
        public void InitializeTcObject()
        {
            try
            {
                TestCompleteObject = Marshal.GetActiveObject(TCProgID);
            }
            catch
            {
                try
                {
                    TestCompleteObject = Activator.CreateInstance(Type.GetTypeFromProgID(TCProgID));
                }
                catch (Exception ex)
                {
                    Console.WriteLine(ex.Message);
                    Console.WriteLine("Unable to initialize TestComplete.");
                }
            }
    
            if (TestCompleteObject != null)
            {
                TestCompleteManager = (ITestCompleteCOMManager)TestCompleteObject;
                IntegrationObject = TestCompleteManager.Integration;
            }
        }
    
        private void IntegrationObject_OnLogMessage(string message)
        {
            // Handle log message here
            // You can collect and format the messages as needed
        }
    
        private void IntegrationObject_OnWarningMessage(string message)
        {
            // Handle warning message here
        }
    
        private void IntegrationObject_OnError(string message)
        {
            // Handle error message here
        }
    
        private void IntegrationObject_OnInfoMessage(string message)
        {
            // Handle info message here
        }
    }
    

     

  • Hej,

     

    if you do not need all messages in real time, I would recommend to fetch the log file after the test has completed and parse it.

     

    You can get the name of the log by calling

     

    IntegrationObject.GetLastResultDescription().LogFileName

     

    It will always point to a xml file called RootLogData.dat

     

    Parse this xml and look for the Prp tag with the attribute name="filename". In the attribute value you will find the name of the log file. Something like this: ="{D7603EDA-C8B8-4006-9D57-F034297D444A}"

     

    The log file is a xml file as well. Now parse this xml. Every Node tag represents a message line.
