Synopsis

Static functions

Detailed Description

See the Qt Test Overview for information about how to write unit tests.

PySide2.QtTest.QTest.TestFailMode

This enum describes the modes for handling an expected failure of the QVERIFY() or QCOMPARE() macros.

Constant

Description

QTest.Abort

Aborts the execution of the test. Use this mode when it doesn’t make sense to execute the test any further after the expected failure.

QTest.Continue

Continues execution of the test after the expected failure.

static PySide2.QtTest.QTest.addColumnInternal(id, name)
Parameters
  • idint

  • name – str

static PySide2.QtTest.QTest.asciiToKey(ascii)
Parameters

asciichar

Return type

Key

Convert an ascii char key value to a Qt Key value. If the key is unknown a 0 is returned.

Note: this may happen more than you like since not all known ascii keys _are_ converted already. So feel free to add all the keys you need.

static PySide2.QtTest.QTest.compare_ptr_helper(t1, t2, actual, expected, file, line)
Parameters
  • t1void

  • t2void

  • actual – str

  • expected – str

  • file – str

  • lineint

Return type

bool

static PySide2.QtTest.QTest.compare_string_helper(t1, t2, actual, expected, file, line)
Parameters
  • t1 – str

  • t2 – str

  • actual – str

  • expected – str

  • file – str

  • lineint

Return type

bool

static PySide2.QtTest.QTest.currentAppName()
Return type

str

Returns the name of the binary that is currently executed.

static PySide2.QtTest.QTest.currentDataTag()
Return type

str

Returns the name of the current test data. If the test doesn’t have any assigned testdata, the function returns 0.

static PySide2.QtTest.QTest.currentTestFailed()
Return type

bool

Returns true if the current test function failed, otherwise false.

static PySide2.QtTest.QTest.currentTestFunction()
Return type

str

Returns the name of the test function that is currently executed.

Example:

void MyTestClass.cleanup()
{
    if (qstrcmp(currentTestFunction(), "myDatabaseTest") == 0) {
        // clean up all database connections
        closeAllDatabases()
    }
}
static PySide2.QtTest.QTest.ignoreMessage(type, messagePattern)
Parameters
  • typeQtMsgType

  • messagePatternQRegularExpression

static PySide2.QtTest.QTest.ignoreMessage(type, message)
Parameters
  • typeQtMsgType

  • message – str

Ignores messages created by qDebug() , qInfo() or qWarning() . If the message with the corresponding type is outputted, it will be removed from the test log. If the test finished and the message was not outputted, a test failure is appended to the test log.

Note

Invoking this function will only ignore one message. If the message you want to ignore is outputted twice, you have to call twice, too.

Example:

QDir dir

QTest.ignoreMessage(QtWarningMsg, "QDir.mkdir: Empty or null file name(s)")
dir.mkdir("")

The example above tests that mkdir() outputs the right warning when invoked with an invalid file name.

static PySide2.QtTest.QTest.keyToAscii(key)
Parameters

keyKey

Return type

char

Convert a Qt Key to an ascii char value. If the Qt key is unknown a 0 is returned.

Note: this may happen more than you like since not all known Qt keys _are_ converted already. So feel free to add all the keys you need.

static PySide2.QtTest.QTest.qCleanup()
static PySide2.QtTest.QTest.qElementData(elementName, metaTypeId)
Parameters
  • elementName – str

  • metaTypeIdint

Return type

void

static PySide2.QtTest.QTest.qExpectFail(dataIndex, comment, mode, file, line)
Parameters
  • dataIndex – str

  • comment – str

  • modeTestFailMode

  • file – str

  • lineint

Return type

bool

static PySide2.QtTest.QTest.qExtractTestData(dirName)
Parameters

dirName – unicode

Return type

QSharedPointer

Extracts a directory from resources to disk. The content is extracted recursively to a temporary folder. The extracted content is removed automatically once the last reference to the return value goes out of scope.

dirName is the name of the directory to extract from resources.

Returns the temporary directory where the data was extracted or null in case of errors.

static PySide2.QtTest.QTest.qFindTestData(basepath[, file=None[, line=0[, builddir=None]]])
Parameters
  • basepath – unicode

  • file – str

  • lineint

  • builddir – str

Return type

unicode

static PySide2.QtTest.QTest.qFindTestData(basepath[, file=None[, line=0[, builddir=None]]])
Parameters
  • basepath – str

  • file – str

  • lineint

  • builddir – str

Return type

unicode

static PySide2.QtTest.QTest.qGlobalData(tagName, typeId)
Parameters
  • tagName – str

  • typeIdint

Return type

void

static PySide2.QtTest.QTest.qRun()
Return type

int

static PySide2.QtTest.QTest.qSkip(message, file, line)
Parameters
  • message – str

  • file – str

  • lineint

static PySide2.QtTest.QTest.setBenchmarkResult(result, metric)
Parameters

Sets the benchmark result for this test function to result .

Use this function if you want to report benchmark results without using the QBENCHMARK macro. Use metric to specify how Qt Test should interpret the results.

The context for the result will be the test function name and any data tag from the _data function. This function can only be called once in each test function, subsequent calls will replace the earlier reported results.

Note that the -iterations command line argument has no effect on test functions without the QBENCHMARK macro.

static PySide2.QtTest.QTest.setMainSourcePath(file[, builddir=None])
Parameters
  • file – str

  • builddir – str

static PySide2.QtTest.QTest.testObject()
Return type

QObject

static PySide2.QtTest.QTest.toPrettyCString(unicode, length)
Parameters
  • unicode – str

  • lengthint

Return type

char

Returns the same QByteArray but with only the ASCII characters still shown; everything else is replaced with \xHH .
