Passing a command line parameter to a batch file


Passing a command line parameter to a batch file

I have a tested app that is a batch file and I would like to pass a parameter to that batch file for it to use. How would I go about doing this? I am writing using Javascript.

You can use the WshShell object within TestComplete to execute a command line to run your batch file, much the same way as you would do from the command prompt in windows.  You can then pass any parameters through in the same way.

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.
I love good food, good books, good friends, and good fun.
