Run multiple module at same time.

Post by Esh » Fri Nov 04, 2016 10:38 am

Hi everyone,

I would like to know how to run multiple modules at the same time.
For example, I want to test the program execution during disk full.
So I create a Recording module, run the program mainly.
And create a Code module, will copy a big file to the disk that the program is running to produce the error.

Is possible to run the two modules at the same time?

In my opinion, the only way how to run two modules at the same time would be using multiple threads, as described for example in unexpected dialog handling code (here). Basically, the code starts second thread, in which you can do almost anything you want. The problem is, that there is currently no way to pause/stop test running in main thread from second (popupwatcher) thread.
