Modifying Squish functions

Last edited on

Please see How to Modify Squish Functions for an introduction to this topic.

The following example demonstrates an alternative approach to modifying Squish functions which may or may not be a bit easier to understand.

In addition to modifying Squish functions, the example demonstrates counting the number of “fails” and “passes” in the respective variables.

fails = 0
passes = 0

def my_test_fail(msg, detail=''):
    global fails
    fails += 1
    test.fail_org(msg, detail)

def my_test_passes(msg, detail=''):
    global passes
    passes += 1
    test.passes_org(msg, detail)

def my_test_compare(value1, value2, msg=None):
    global fails
    if not test.compare_org(value1, value2, msg):
        fails += 1
        return False
    return True

def my_test_vp(name, record=None):
    global fails
    if record is None:
        if not test.vp_org(name):
            fails += 1
            return False
    else:
        if not test.vp_org(name, record):
            fails += 1
            return False
    return True

def register_test_funcs():
    test.fail_org = test.fail
    test.fail = my_test_fail

    test.passes_org = test.passes
    test.passes = my_test_passes

    test.compare_org = test.compare
    test.compare = my_test_compare

    test.vp_org = test.vp
    test.vp = my_test_vp

def init():
    register_test_funcs()

def main():
    startApplication("myapp")

    test.fail("fail")
    test.fail("fail", "detail")
    test.passes("passes")
    test.passes("passes", "detail")
    test.compare("1", "2")
    test.compare("1", "2", "message")
    test.vp("VP3")

    global fails
    global passes 
    test.log("Fails: " + str(fails))
    test.log("Passes: " + str(passes))
test.py

Note that one drawback of this approach (and the approach at How to Modify Squish Functions ) is that a double click on an entry in the Test Results view will open the script file at the line where the original Squish test function gets called - which could be - for example - the third line of the function my_test_passes.
