Concept of Absolute Path and Relative Path In QTP

Spread the love


There is a concept in QTP, called Absolute path and relative path.
I am trying to explain the both in a simple format with a simple example
Absolute path: It means we need to mention the full path in the script itself

Executefile "D:projectlibabc.vbs"

or whereever necessary, we need to give the full path in the script itself
Example-D:projectlib etc
Relative path: As the name refers, it is a relative scructure of the path. The path is hidden inside the script or the tool . Even the structure might hidden or created inside the coding
In the script it is written

Executefile "abc.vbs"

For this the path is mentioned inside the tool.
Tools—>option—>folder tab
The scructure which can be created dynamically is an example of true Relative path…

project path=driver&"" & "Project"
lib path= project path & "" & "lib"

This is an example of data hiding too.
