Report Generation in PDF or Excel



I have a query regarding report generation in Test Complete. After finishing the test run I can export log file to PDF but it contains only events list which is not that descriptive to present further with client. I will be looking forward to receive positive solution of my query.

What's in the log is what you put there.  So, if you don't deliberately write any activity out to the log, it won't show up in the log.  If you have need of more detail, more information, organization of tests/test cases, etc, then you need to write that information out to the Log using the Log.Message method along with, potentially, Log.AppendFolder, Log.PopFolder, Log.Picture, etc.  If all you're doing is recording a test and playing it back, all you'll get is the events in the log without additional detail.

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.
