Re: [QF-Test] Syntax question for IF statement using AND in QFTest

The IF-condition follows Python syntax. You can simply write:

  not $(ORFoundFlag) and $(CurrentDateRangeSelector) == $(NBR_DATE_RANGES)

Note that the keywords "not", "and", "or" must be lowercase and that the comparison uses "==" to test for equality.

A technical description of this can be found in sections 5.9 Comparisons and 5.10 Boolean Operations of the Python language reference:

The link is to the oldest Python 2.x version still on the Python site. QF-Test uses Jython 2.5 which is a bit older, but the language hasn't changed regarding theses expressions.

Hello All.


This is probably a simple question for most of you but it’s driving me batty.


I have an IF condition that runs off of 3 variables.


One is a loop iteration count and the other is a max number of loops taken from a table.

The other is a flag variable set by how the SUT responds.


It starts the loop like this:

Set variable: ORFoundFlag=False


If data is found, it will

Set variable:ORFoundFlag=True


So at the end of each loop, I have


$(ORFoundFlag) == False AND $(CurrentDateRangeSelector) = $(NBR_DATE_RANGES)


Which gives me a “this is not a valid test” error.


Adding quotes to the False does nothing either. Nor does using _one_ =


I’m hoping extra experienced eyeballs can spot the problem right away.


Thanks in advance!
