QC Document Generator API
Could we have api(s) for performing the document generator
actions.We could generate documents for all the QC modules by selecting Tools--->Document Generator and selecting the required settings for extracting the data
I do not want to customize the default document generator functionality which is a separate topic.
I believe Document Generator is not mapped to one or more backend table like that of each of the module in qc.Correct me if i am wrong.
Is there any api collection using which i could generate
document for example for a manual test in Test pan in my project without manually using the Tool--->Dcument generator
Re: QC Document Generator API
There is no such API. The document generator is two folds.
The first fold is the window that lets you specify what and how to output in the document ; you can save these parameters as a favorite ; when you decide to generate the document, that window creates a file on the workstation that holds all your parameters.
The second fold is a set of VBA macros that retrieve that file and creates the document ; these macros use the Open Test Architecture API to access the project and retrieve the data to output.
Once they have read the intermediate file, the VBA macros delete it. There is a way to avoid that, i.e. let that file stay on the workstation. If you find it, you may be able to generate the document without the first fold of the document generator (but, for sure, this is not the way it is intended to be used).
