How can I pass multiple arguments into the StExecuteTestcase function?

How can I pass multiple arguments into the StExecuteTestcase function?

The third input parameter (sTestData) of the function "StExecuteTestcase" allows you to pass test data into the SilkTest test case during script execution. However as this parameter expects a single string then it is important to note that multiple Strings which are passed in must begin and end with a "\" in order to be compliable in a single string. Therefore with this in mind, the following examples below demonstrate how to pass two unique strings and two variables into the function.

Example One:

// Pass in the variables “user1” and "pass1” to the test case “Silktest_demo.t”

StExecuteTestcase("Silktest_demo.t", "silk_demo1", "\"user1\",\"pass1\"", "Timersilk_demo1");

Example Two:

// Assigns the two input variables as single string so that it can be used as a parameter in StExecuteTestcase

sArgument:= "\"" + sUser + "\"" +" ," + "\"" + sPass + "\"";

// Pass in variables from SilkPerformer BDF script to SilkTest Test case “Silktest_demo.t”

StExecuteTestcase("Login.t", "Test1", sArgument, "TimerTest1");
