Alternatives to SYS_Execute in 4Test

Alternatives to SYS_Execute in 4Test

Use a windows API call to use the ShellExecute() method to execute your commandline as such ;

[ ] // Call the function from the windows API and set the prototype
[ ]
[-] dll "Shell32.dll"
     [ ] //ANSI
     [ ] ansicall int ShellExecuteA(int hwnd, String lpOperation, String lpFile, string lpParameters,String lpDirectory, int nShowCmd)
     [ ]
     [ ] //WIDE
     [ ] int ShellExecuteW(int hwnd, String lpOperation, String lpFile, string lpParameters,String lpDirectory, int nShowCmd)
[ ]
[ ]
[-] testcase ShellExe() appstate none
      [ ]
      [ ] // Sets iHandle = to the window handle for the desktop
      [ ] int iHandle = Desktop.GetHandle()
      [ ] // The operation that is to be carried out. Open will execute the file with the associated action or application
      [ ] string lpOperation = "open"
      [ ] // The file on which this operation will be carried out
      [ ] string lpFile = "javaexamp"
      [ ] // Any additional parameters to the commandline
      [ ] string lpParameters = " "
      [ ] // The working directory in which this will be run
      [ ] string lpDirectory = "c:\"
      [ ] // a flag that determines how the command will be shown
      [ ] int iShowCmd = 5
      [ ]
      [ ]
      [ ] ShellExecuteA (iHandle,lpOperation,lpFile,lpParameters,lpDirectory,iShowCmd)
      [ ]
      [ ]

The downside to this is that it will not return the output from command line.
