Extract relevant information from TestComplete logs


I have a grop of 100 tests which have so many Log.Checkpoint and Log.Error statements. 

In the logs, I have to go to individual test logs under the root to get the count and details for Log.Checkpoint and Log.Error messages.


Is there a way to pull out all the Log.Checkpoint, Log.Error and Log.Warning messages from the log file and publish them in another log file? Also, is it possible to get the counts of pass, fails and warnings too? 


any help would really be appreciated! 




Thank you

Thanks marsha! I had tried some of these already, but it doesn't do what I need.

Re: Extract relevant information from TestComplete logs

There is no "other log file" built in to TestComplete.  In order to write out to another file, you'll need to create code to do so using things like aqFileSystem and so forth.  To get them to NOT add into the TestComplete log, you'll need to implement OnLogCheckpoint, OnLogWarning, and OnLogError event handlers to suppress the log entries... in fact, it would be those handlers, as well, that would do the work of writing out to the external file so that, once you suppress them, they would be written in the desired location.


As for counts... built in to TestComplete is the following summary on the log.  Note that the counts on this summary only pertain to Test items and how many passed or failed and how many had warnings.  These counts do not pertain to the log entries you noted but only the actual "Test Items" within the individual projects.



There is an erorr/warning count available as well.  This doesn't break it down by project or test item, just gives totals.




so... to do EXACTLY what you want will take code writing, utilizing the link that Marsha gave you and other similar documentation along with the event handlers I mentioned.  So, it's possible to do it, just it will have to be written.

You could use Test Completes event handlers for all of the different log types to write them to you own file.


The Log object already has counts for all the diffent log types:
