External Log File

I would like to save the test execution log to an external file on disk.

Solution

Overwrite the OnAfterTestCompleted method for individual tests in order to perform logic on Test Results. See our KB article on Executing Custom Scripts Before/After your Test Run for more information. You can generate a custom log file by using the TestResult class.

We have code samples for two file types:

Text File

public IList<AutomationStepResult> stepResults { get; set; } 
public override void OnAfterTestCompleted(TestResult result) 
{ 
    stepResults = result.StepResults; 
 
    string passed = Convert.ToString(result.TotalPassedSteps); 
    string notRunSteps = Convert.ToString(result.TotalNumberOfNotRunSteps); 
    string overall = Convert.ToString(result.Result); 
    string resultMessage = Convert.ToString(result.Message); 
 
    System.IO.StreamWriter file = new System.IO.StreamWriter("c:\source.txt"); 
 
    file.WriteLine(resultMessage); 
    file.WriteLine("Number of Passed Steps:"+ passed); 
    file.WriteLine("Number of Not Run Steps: "+ notRunSteps); 
    file.WriteLine("Total Test Result: "+ overall); 
    file.Close(); 
} 
Public Property stepResults() As IList(Of AutomationStepResult) 
    Get 
        Return m_stepResults 
    End Get 
    Set 
        m_stepResults = Value 
    End Set 
End Property 
Private m_stepResults As IList(Of AutomationStepResult) 
Public Overrides Sub OnAfterTestCompleted(result As TestResult) 
    stepResults = result.StepResults 
 
    Dim passed As String = Convert.ToString(result.TotalPassedSteps) 
    Dim notRunSteps As String = Convert.ToString(result.TotalNumberOfNotRunSteps) 
    Dim overall As String = Convert.ToString(result.Result) 
    Dim resultMessage As String = Convert.ToString(result.Message) 
 
    Dim file As New System.IO.StreamWriter("c:\source.txt") 
 
    file.WriteLine(resultMessage) 
    file.WriteLine("Number of Passed Steps:" & passed) 
    file.WriteLine("Number of Not Run Steps: " & notRunSteps) 
    file.WriteLine("Total Test Result: " & overall) 
    file.Close() 
End Sub 

Finally you'll need to add an Assembly Reference for ArtOfTest.Common.Design. If it is already present, remove it and add it again. Add it from the *Test Studio\Bin* directory:

  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Progress\Test Studio\Bin

Excel File

  • You'll need to add a reference to Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.dll. If it isn't already on your machine, ensure you download the version from Microsoft that matches your Office suite.

  • You'll need to create the Excel file on disk first.

public override void OnAfterTestCompleted(TestResult result) 
{ 
    string passed = Convert.ToString(result.TotalPassedSteps); 
    string notRunSteps = Convert.ToString(result.TotalNumberOfNotRunSteps); 
    string overall = Convert.ToString(result.Result); 
 
    string resultMessage = Convert.ToString(result.Message);   
    string [] split = resultMessage.Split(new Char [] {'\n'}); 
 
    Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Application excelApp = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Application();            
    string myPath = "C:\Excel.xlsx"; 
    Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Workbook workbook = excelApp.Workbooks.Open(myPath); 
 
    int idx = 1; 
    foreach (string s in split) 
    { 
        excelApp.Cells[idx, 1] = s; 
        idx++; 
    } 
 
    excelApp.Cells[idx + 1, 1] = ("Number of Passed Steps: " + passed); 
    excelApp.Cells[idx + 2, 1] = ("Number of Not Run Steps: " + notRunSteps); 
    excelApp.Cells[idx + 3, 1] = ("Total Test Result: " + overall); 
    excelApp.Visible = true; 
 
    excelApp.ActiveWorkbook.Save(); 
    workbook.Close(false, Type.Missing, Type.Missing); 
    excelApp.Workbooks.Close(); 
    System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.ReleaseComObject(workbook); 
 
    excelApp.Quit(); 
    GC.Collect(); 
    System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.ReleaseComObject(excelApp); 
} 
Public Overrides Sub OnAfterTestCompleted(result As TestResult) 
    Dim passed As String = Convert.ToString(result.TotalPassedSteps) 
    Dim notRunSteps As String = Convert.ToString(result.TotalNumberOfNotRunSteps) 
    Dim overall As String = Convert.ToString(result.Result) 
 
    Dim resultMessage As String = Convert.ToString(result.Message) 
    Dim split As String() = resultMessage.Split(New Char {ControlChars.Lf}) 
 
    Dim excelApp As New Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Application() 
    Dim myPath As String = "C:\Excel.xlsx" 
    Dim workbook As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Workbook = excelApp.Workbooks.Open(myPath) 
 
    Dim idx As Integer = 1 
    For Each s As String In split 
        excelApp.Cells(idx, 1) = s 
        idx += 1 
    Next 
 
    excelApp.Cells(idx + 1, 1) = ("Number of Passed Steps: " + passed) 
    excelApp.Cells(idx + 2, 1) = ("Number of Not Run Steps: " + notRunSteps) 
    excelApp.Cells(idx + 3, 1) = ("Total Test Result: " + overall) 
    excelApp.Visible = True 
 
    excelApp.ActiveWorkbook.Save() 
    workbook.Close(False, Type.Missing, Type.Missing) 
    excelApp.Workbooks.Close() 
    System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.ReleaseComObject(workbook) 
 
    excelApp.Quit() 
    GC.Collect() 
    System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.ReleaseComObject(excelApp) 
End Sub
