Declare and initialize a global variable
Environment: TestComplete 14.30.3743.7 x64 with Delphi script
At function level a variable can be declared and initialized at the same time: the syntax is as follow
Using the same syntax for a global variable will lead to a TC syntax error. Does anyone know if it is possible to initialize a global variable with a default value? or, is this allowed within the above mentioned environment?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Funny... I tried that syntax inside a function declaration and got a syntax error as well.
As I recall, when making variable declarations that are NOT a parameter of the function, you cannot declare a default value.
For example, THIS is allowed
function blah(i:integer =8):Variant; begin end;
while this is not
function blah:Variant; var
i:integer = 8; begin end;
It's been a while since I've done DelphiScript work... but I do know that it's different than Delphi. While Delphi proper allows for assigning default values to global variables, I don't think that applies to the DelphiScript implementation in TestComplete. There really isn't a "global" scope in a TestComplete project of script code so it doesn't apply.

Why automate? I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy. Sleep is a requirement. So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.
