file relative path problem

Post by Ruser » Wed Oct 21, 2009 10:13 pm

Hi, there,

I call a file in my script like:

string URL = CSVConnector.Instance.Rows[4]["Value1"].ToString();

I got an error said no row 4 exists, basically cannot read the TestData.csv file.

If I change the script to give full TestData.csv path, it is working properly, so this one works:

CSVConnector.Instance.Open(@"C:\Users\user1\Documents\RanorexStudio Projects\AutomationLib\TestData.csv);
string URL = CSVConnector.Instance.Rows[4]["Value1"].ToString();

The TestData.csv file is at the same folder with Csvconnector.cs inside a project solution.

Anyone has idea here?

Hi Ruser,
check the Environment.CurrentDirectory property before calling CSVConnector.Instance.Open(@"..\..\TestData.csv");. Probably your current dir + relative path is wrong. Attend that the current (working) directory depends on the location of your exe/dll. So if you add a reference to e.g. AutomationLib which call the csvConnector, the current dir is relating to the location of your DLL.

Or use:

Code: Select all

FileName = path.combine(path.GetDirectory(assembly.getexecutingassembly.location),"myfile.csv")
or something similar
