until

Description

Evaluate a conditional expression to determine whether execution is to continue with another iteration of the repeat/until loop, or with the action lines below this point.

Arguments

condition to stop
Expression which, upon evaluating to True, terminates execution of the block of action lines within the repeat/until loop.

Valid contexts

This action may be used within the following project items: test modules and user-defined actions.

Notes

  • If condition to stop evaluates to True, execution returns to the first action line below the associated repeat action line. (That is, another iteration of the repeat/until loop is begun.) If False, execution continues with the lines below the until.
  • This action ignores letter case for values of True and False, and is unaffected by the current state of the case sensitive built-in setting.
  • It is acceptable to use numeric expressions in the condition to stop argument. TestArchitect treats the value 0 as False, and 1 as True. Note that an error is generated for any other numeric value.
  • The following operators may be used within an expression in the condition to stop argument:
    Table 1. Comparison operators
    Precedence Comparison operator Meaning
    4 = equal to
    4 <> not equal to
    4 > greater than
    4 >= greater than or equal to
    4 < less than
    4 <= less than or equal to
    Table 2. Logical operators
    Precedence Logical operator Meaning
    5 not Value is TRUE if its operand is FALSE.
    6 and Value is TRUE if and only if both sides of the and operator are TRUE.
    7 or Value is TRUE if either side of the or operator is TRUE.
    Note: For the full list of operator precedence, see here.
  • Be careful when using repeat/until loops, and in the expressions you use for condition to stop. An infinite loop may cause the TA Playback tool to hang.
  • To exit the repeat/until loop from within the block of action lines, use the built-in action exit loop.
