Let us further enhance our code to launch UFT script from VAPI-XP in ALM. We are already familiar with “Hello World!!” code in VAPI-XP .We are going to run the same line of code but this time we are utilizing UFT to execute it.

Launching and running UFT script from VAPI-XP in ALM


Create a simple Test in UFT with following lines of code.

Msgbox “Hello World!!”,,“My First VAPI-XP in UFT”

Sub Test_Main(Debug, CurrentTestSet, CurrentTSTest, CurrentRun)
On error resume next
'Taking the UserName
Set objNW = CreateObject("Wscript.Network")
sUserName = objNW.UserName
Set objNW = Nothing
'Creating the UFT object
Set objUFT = CreateObject("QuickTest.Application")
Do While Err.Number <> 0
Sleep 2000
Set objUFT = CreateObject("QuickTest.Application")
'Launch uft if not launched
If Not objUFT.Launched Then objUFT.Launch
'Make UFT visible
If objUFT.Visible = False Then objUFT.Visible = True
'Incase UFT is already running stop the excution
If objUFT.Test.IsRunning Then objUFT.Test.Stop
'Open the Test
objUFT.Open "C:Users" & sUserName & "Test"
