At the beginning of my projects I have ‘Create Data’ scripts that read lots of data, check it, create objects and insert the data to the objects’ properties. This can take a long time (several minutes sometimes) at the beginning of the run. All this time I have an empty screen and at the top-right corner of my screen I see the TestComplete icon that only says “Playback”.
Is there a way to send my messages that will be displayed under this icon? I would like to send messages like: ‘read this file’, ‘populate that object’, ‘at this stage’ and so on, so I can see progress.
We created a particular procedure that does just that. This procedure needs to be called at each point that you want information showing in the indicator
<font class="small">Code:</font><hr /><pre>
This procedure clears any existing indicator message and displays the text passed in as the current indicator message.
This text will display until it is either cleared manually, or this procedure is called with new text.
