Is there a way to establish what type of file the current execution is being called from?
This can be done by using the functionality of the GetTestPlanName () function within SilkTest. This will return the name of the file that the currently executed test is being called from whether it is a plan file, test file or suite file. Then create a function that will return the extension of the filename returned and output what type of file it is being called from.
e.g. [-] testcase GettingFileType () appstate none [ ] String s1 = GetTestPlanName() // return the script name as a string [ ] String sExt = GetExtension(s1) [ ] Print("The type of file that this testcase is being called from is: ",sExt) [ ] [-] string GetExtension (string s) [ ] string s1 = GetTestPlanName ( ) [ ] string ext = Right(s, 1) [ ] [-] if (ext == "s") // suite [ ] ext = "suite file (.s)" [-] else if (ext== "t") // test [ ] ext="test file (.t)" [-] else if (ext == "n")// plan [ ] ext="plan file (.pln)" [-] else if (ext == "c") // include [ ] ext="include file (.inc)" [-] else [ ] ext="unknown file" // unknown [ ] return(ext)
