Call Checkpoints dynamically

Call Checkpoints dynamically

I want to define Installation screens checkpoints (Region and Object) for each version say version 4.1, 4.2, 4.3 4.4 etc. And for each version some contents of the installation screen are different.

  Can the checkpoints be called dynamically?

Yes you can

Based on the version number, create an if or switch statement to do the following:

Regions.Add(...) --> to add an image to the store dynamically

Regions.AddPicture(...) or addthe picture of an object on the screen to the store

Regions.Compare(...) to compare the live object on the screen to what you stored using one of the previous 2 methods.

At the end of the test, you can delete the stored images dynamically as well.


You can do the same with all other checkpoints as well.

  My requirement is If I store multiple checkpoints according to version then I would like to call the checkpoint in a single line - This line should handle the version itself --> Instead of version looping (Using If..else or CASE)

Yes, this is possible.

Use eval() or evaluate() function provided by scripting language you are using.

For example, considering that your checkpoints are named like Screen1_v4_1, Screen2_v4_1, ..., Screen1_v4_2, ... with the current version in proper format stored in the strVersion variable and screen number stored in the strScreenNo variable, consider this code snippet:

strCmd := 'Regions.Screen' + strScreenNo + '_v' + strVersion + '.Check()'; // the value of strCmd should be like 'Regions.Screen1_v4_1.Check()' (without quotes)
