Error trying to verify array value from another script unit [//USEUNIT] in current script unit.

I am using TestComplete v11,31,242 and Jscript. I have been using TC and Jscript about three months now. So my understanding is limited. I am creating modular script units for functions that are going to be called repeatedly. Currently scripting search (regression) for patient search (our product is EMR for Hospitals/Clinics).

 

To perform various searches based on patient name, source, account #, MRN, DOB, admission date, department, group etc. So I am collecting all the patient information by searching for the patient, selecting the patient and going to "View Detail Information". Collecting the above information and placing them in an array "pStat".

 

The array function unit is called from the "Search" script unit. Then proceeding to perform searches. Once the patient is found, some of the information collected earlier is used to verify accuracy (property checkpoint). At the checkpoint I am getting an error. If I copy/paste the entire array script into the search script, it runs without any error! Can not figure out how to fix this. Please help.

 

The "array" script:

function getPatientStat()
{

. . .

//select patient Aliases.browser.pifHome.aspnetForm.firstPatient.Click(); //view information Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.menuViewInfo.Click(); //get patient info var pStat = []; var pStat = [Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.panelPatientInfo.Name.contentText, Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.panelPatientInfo.ptSource.contentText, Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.panelPatientInfo.acNum.contentText, Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.panelPatientInfo.MRN.contentText, Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.panelPatientInfo.DOB.contentText, Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.panelPatientInfo.aDate.contentText, Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.panelPatientInfo.Dept.contentText, Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.panelPatientInfo.Group.contentText];

The script collecting all the intended information. But failing in property checkpoint in "search" Unit.

 Property checkpoint:

//USEUNIT Patient_Info

//gather patient info
Patient_Info.getPatientStat();


//select patient Aliases.browser.pifHome.aspnetForm.firstPatient.Click(); //view information Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.menuViewInfo.Click(); //check MRN
aqObject.CheckProperty(Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.panelPatientInfo.MRN, "contentText", cmpEqual, pStat[3]);

 

 

If the array function is included in search script, it runs with no problem.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Error trying to verify array value from another script unit [//USEUNIT] in current script unit.

you have declared var pStat [] globally (out side function)  which is OK

but you are again declaring var pStat [] inside function so the program got confused...

 

inside of function you do not need Var keyword 

just do like 

pStat = 
    [Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.panelPatientInfo.Name.contentText, 
    Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.panelPatientInfo.ptSource.contentText, 
    Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.panelPatientInfo.acNum.contentText,  
    Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.panelPatientInfo.MRN.contentText,
    Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.panelPatientInfo.DOB.contentText,  
    Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.panelPatientInfo.aDate.contentText,  
    Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.panelPatientInfo.Dept.contentText,  
    Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.panelPatientInfo.Group.contentText];  

or better

pStat[0] = Aliases.browser.....Name.contentText
pStat[1] =Aliases....pt.Source.contentText


pl type full-name instead of dots above

 

Also a good place to grasp programming concepts is http://www.w3schools.com remember this is not jScrip TC have but most concepts are similer

Re: Error trying to verify array value from another script unit [//USEUNIT] in current script unit.

 

By any chance did you defined "pStat" in side of a function?

do you get "pStat"in autocomplete (ctrl+space)

 

what is if you just log the value like

Log.Message(pStat[3]);  

......... Just before check point.

Re: Error trying to verify array value from another script unit [//USEUNIT] in current script unit.

Hi 

 

Yes, pStat is inside of a function. It has been delared, if you look at the first block of code, it goes like (within function) -

 

function getPatientStat()
{

. . .

var pStat = []; var pStat = [Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.panelPatientInfo.Name.contentText, . . .

Autocomplete works only when the "array" is inside of the main unit. Once removed, it does not!

 

Log.Message(pStat[3]); 

Therefore, does not work when the "array" is missing from the main unit. This tells me that it is loosing track of array values one the"array" unit is completed and returns to main unit!

 

Any thoughts?

 

There has to be a way to retain the array values, so I can continue with the rest of the test.

Re: Error trying to verify array value from another script unit [//USEUNIT] in current script unit.

If you declare an array or variable inside a function, it is not available outside of the function. Unless it's a return parameter of the function.

Previously I was assuming your array was globally declared.

 

Or am I totally misunderstood your question?

Hi NisHera

 

I think you are onto something here! As I mentioned earlier, I am pretty new at this! When you say "globally", what exactly do you mean, can you clarify (with an example) please?

 

Thanks.

^^^ Explained in there under "Important notes".

 

Just how Jscript scopes it's variables.

 

More here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/e1s0ezse(v=vs.100).aspx

 

(Assume the MSDN ref applies to how Jscript in TC behaves. I don't use Jscript personally, but I use C# script which uses the same engine as far as I'm aware.)

Re: Error trying to verify array value from another script unit [//USEUNIT] in current script unit.

Hi Colin

 

Based on your suggested reading, found out I need to declare the variable outside of the function. So this is what I have-

 

Unit "Search Patient by Department"

//USEUNIT Patient_Info
// [Name, ptSource, acNum, MRN, DOB, aDate, Dept, Group] - in a array "pStat[]""


//search the patient by department
function searchDept()
{

    //gather patient info (unit "Patient_Info")
    Patient_Info.getPatientStat();

    //back to Unit Search Patient by Department
    // log pStat -
    Log.message("Name: " + pStat[0]);
    Log.message("Patient Source: " + pStat[1]);
    Log.message("Account Number: " + pStat[2]);
    Log.message("MRN: " + pStat[3]);
    Log.message("DOB: " + pStat[4]);
    Log.message("Admission Date: " + pStat[5]);
    Log.message("Department: " + pStat[6]);
    Log.message("Group: " + pStat[7]);

    //home
    Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.menuHome.Click();
   //select search by department and patient name
   Aliases.browser.pifHome.aspnetForm.selectSearchBy.ClickItem(1);
   //select department dropdown - "Emergency Department"
   Aliases.browser.pifHome.aspnetForm.selectDepartment.ClickItem(3);   
   //set patient name 
   Aliases.browser.pifHome.aspnetForm.inputPatientName.SetText("Lena")
   //search
   Aliases.browser.pifHome.aspnetForm.btnSearch.ClickButton();
   //select patient
   Aliases.browser.pifHome.aspnetForm.firstPatient.Click();
   //view information
   Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.menuViewInfo.Click();
    // MRN = 
Log.Message(pStat[3]); //check patient MRN aqObject.CheckProperty(Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.panelPatientInfo.MRN, "contentText", cmpEqual, pStat[3]); . . .

Unit "Patient_Info"

//patient info
    var pStat = [];

function getPatientStat()
{
   . . .
     
    //point IE to SWCE3
    Browsers.Item("iexplore", "", Browsers.pX86).Run("https://swce3.imedconsent.com/SRC");
    //input username
    ...;
    //input password
    ...
    //slelect domain 'none'
    Aliases.browser.pifLogin.aspnetForm.setDomain.ClickItem(0);
    //click login
    Aliases.browser.pifLogin.aspnetForm.btnLogin.ClickButton();
   //search patient name
    Aliases.browser.pifHome.aspnetForm.inputPatientName.SetText("lena");
    //click search
    Aliases.browser.pifHome.aspnetForm.btnSearch.ClickButton();
    //view information
    Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.menuViewInfo.Click();

    
    var pStat = 
    [Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.panelPatientInfo.Name.contentText, 
    Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.panelPatientInfo.ptSource.contentText, 
    Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.panelPatientInfo.acNum.contentText,  
    Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.panelPatientInfo.MRN.contentText,
    Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.panelPatientInfo.DOB.contentText,  
    Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.panelPatientInfo.aDate.contentText,  
    Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.panelPatientInfo.Dept.contentText,  
    Aliases.browser.swce.aspnetForm.panelPatientInfo.Group.contentText];  
}

 

I am running "Search Patient by Department" routine, it immediately runs the Patient_Info routine and returns back to continue.

For some reason, array values are not ported over to Search Patient by Department. Log reports "undefined". Not sure what I did  wrong.

 Thanks for your help.
