I'd like to move to a framework using keywords pulled from an excel sheet (along with it's parameters). I've created a function that will read this in and nets a function name and an array of parameters. In this type of framework I'll need a main function to now call this function. what is the best way to do this? Select Case? Is there a limit to the number of cases, is there a more efficient way to impliment?
I'm not finding the answer to my specific question. I'll try again from home. I want to be able to read the name of a function from an excel sheet and then call that function. I did look through your framework (though not thoroughly), but this seems to be more data driven then keyword. I want to be able to call any function/action in any order. My very narrow question is how can I move from knkowing the name of the function I want to call to execution.
I need to walkthrough many possible paths, routines that are called from multiple points, etc. I can't see a better way to accomplish this and keeping things are reusable as possible. Thanks Ian for the prod, I had looked around, just wasn't making any headway. At least I didn't post to your framework thread asking where's the attachment!
I have something similar although my work is on a stand alone java application(s) rather than web. I'm also implemented a generic test that calls VBS "actions" from an excel sheet. So a new test or varying parameters only require updating the excel sheet. My biggest concern moving forward is the size of library/object files. I'm dividing up functions and objects into separate files depending on what aspect of the application is involved to keep file size to a minimum but I also don't want to end up with too many files. Any idea on what kind of limits should be observed in external vbs files?
