Is it possible to conditionally use different frame files within a testcase?

Is it possible to conditionally use different frame files within a testcase?

At runtime any frame files which are to be included within SilkTest must resolve to a constant. The only way this can be implemented within SilkTest is by creating an environment variable which points to the "path/file" of the frame file. This can be returned within the script with the "HOST_GetEnv()" function which will return the value as a constant rather than a function call.

For a variable (SILKTEST_FRAMENAME) which has been set to the path/file of the include file we would use the following code;

[ ] const STRING sFrameName = HOST_GetEnv ("SILKTEST_FRAMENAME")
[ ] use "{sFrameName}"
