Stepping through a script
Can you stepping through a script that was called from another. I have a brake point in script A and B and I start script B and script A starts and I step F7 through the script but the last line hangs TC and control does not return to script A.
Is this a known issue or is this all me.
I'm running TC 6.5 and it is running in a VM.
Thanks for any pointers.
Re: Stepping through a script
First of all, I recommend that you update to the latest version of TestComplete 6 - v.6.53. Also, try re-installing the Microsoft Script Debugger on your machine. You can download it using the following link:
If the problem still persists after that, please follow the steps below to help us collect more information on the issue:
1. Download a free trial version of AQtime 6, which is our profiling tool, from our web site. The trial can be requested on the following page of our web site:
2. Install the tool.
3. Start AQtime.
4. Select the 'File | New Project From Module...' main menu item.
5. In the Open File dialog, select the TestComplete.exe file and click Open.
6. Take a look at the AQtime toolbar - there is a combo box. Open it and select the "Tracing | Exception Trace Profiler" item.
7. Select the "Options | Options..." main menu command - the Options dialog will appear.
8. Set the "Profiling Time | Event View | General | Exceptions | Depth shown" setting to 100 and click OK.
9. Click the Run toolbar button (the green arrow) or press F5 to start the profiling.
10. AQtime will start TestComplete and trace all exceptions that will occur in the application until it is closed.
11. Reproduce the problem in TestComplete.
12. After the problem occurs (TestComplete hangs), right-click somewhere within the Event View panel (it is opened by default at the bottom of AQtime's window) and select the 'Save All...' item.
13. Save the panel's contents to an HTML file and send me the file via our Contact Support form:
Besides that, please zip the entire project suite containing the problematic code and send me the archive as well. Let me know the exact code line where the problem occurs.
Thanks in advance.
