I was wondering if there is a way to display a series of tests over time. For example, lets say I have 10 scripts in 1 suite/project that I run every night, ideally what I would like is a chart or graph, or at least a numerical display of each nights pass/fail numbers. With the previous software that I was using, I had to export the data into a spreadsheet and script inside of that to display that kind of information.
I really like how the test log data is exported in Test Complete, but it would be nice to be able to view multiple exported logs at once. Any thoughts?
At a time someone had developed a TestComplete Log viewer, however I myself have never gotten it to work. There is a link to it here, but it may be way out of date (hence the reason I haven't gotten it to work [img]/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] I'm running TestComplete 5 and TestComplete 6 here) http://www.automatedqa.com/community/Hom...43/Default.aspx
The blog post is from late 2005.
I'd be interested in joining forces with anyone that would like to write a new 'Open Source' external TestComplete Log Viewer, preferably under the GPL2 or compatible license. Basically I want anyone to be able to use and or modify it without any restriction with the source available to anyone to do with as they please. I like the ability to meld the tool to whatever function I need it for.
Most of my experience is in Java, but I've been learning C# as part of my job and preferably would like to write the viewer in that language as a learning experience. I'd only be able to work on it in my spare time though as a log viewer is not critical to my job at the moment.
You can implement an event handler for the OnStopTest event as it is described in the "Handling Events With TestComplete" help topic and use the Log.ErrCount property to get the number of errors posted to the test log of each test (for example, each test item). This information may help you generate your "pass/fail numbers" reports.
