Modify value of output parameter in Test Case Editor ??

BenjaminBenjamin Posts: 2

I have a stubbed function like this :
int StubFunc(short * param)
(Which is supposed to store a value at the address pointed to by param, so, an output parameter)
In order to correctly cover my code, I need to be able to modify the value of param when a stub call is made like the original function would do. However I can't find any syntax that works in the stub box of the Test Case Editor. I can modify the return value, but if I try anything other than "param=[some int]" (which does nothing), the test case fail. What's the correct syntax to modify the value of output parameters in the Test Case Editor ??

    Hi @Benjamin

    If I understand your case correctly you should be using the following syntax:

    *param = [some int];

    For example:
    *param = 22;

    Let me know if it helps.

    1. Assuming you have C++test 10.4.x:

    2. If you're still on C++test 10.3.x:

    Thanks to you both ! I had tried *param=1234 on the 10.3, I actually switched to the 10.4 yesterday in which it worked.
