Pinned topic Pause Script

‏2013-10-18T06:24:15Z |

Dear All,

May I know if I want to pause a script during playback, how should I code the script?

My teammate has tried

pause();

But it doesn't work event imported the required component.

Many Thanks

    1. pause the script by the code *within* the script

    2. do anything on the next line of code (which is within the script also)

     

    If the 1. actually stopped (paused) the script - how the 2. will be executed actually (the script was paused as you may guess)?

     

    if run the following *within* the script:

     

    Dim NeedPause As New Rational.Test.Ft.Services.PlaybackMonitorNeedPause.Pause()' got exception System.InvalidOperationException: Cross-thread operation not valid: Control 'PlaybackMonitor' accessed from a thread other than the thread it was created on.
    

     

    Dim NeedPause As Rational.Test.Ft.Services.IPlaybackMonitorNeedPause = GetPlaybackMonitor()NeedPause.Pause()' actually does nothing - script is going (though the PlayBack Monitor shows that it is "paused" :) )
    

     

    I suppose those lines of code should be "outside" of the RFT code to make it really working - e.g. launch RFT in that code, set the script to run, get the PlayBack Monitor, etc. - it is what Visual Studio actually does when it executes the RFT script.

    Hi, If some visiual component appears on the screen after the request you can add for example (in case of an IDialoge or some other object)

    loginPanel().waitForExistence();

    so you pause as long as it appers (after all the work was done in the background)

    you can also use sleep(seconds) like sleep(4); or sleep(1.500);

    hope it helps,

    Krisz

      Dear Krisz,

      Thanks :)! But sorry that .waitForExistence(); is not suitable for my script as my teammate want to pause the whole playback until someone take action after the page loaded.

      Thus, sleep() is also not suitable for us.

      We want the RTF can pause once the page loaded.

      Anyway, may thanks for your suggestion :)!

      Regards

      Tony

    Sleep is all you need syntax sleep(timeinsecond);

    you can try object.waitforexistence();-this will make the playback pause until that object is visible

    Press F12 while the script is running will pause the script

    Thanks

      Dear Cool K,

      Woo! You have inspired me!

      I may use the script to press F12 to pause the RFT playback on any line :)!

      Will try this way:)!

      Many Thanks!

      Regards
