Array and Structure Display

Component Testing for C

The Array and Structure Display option indicates the way in which Component Testing processes variable array and structure statements. This option is part of the Component Testing Settings for C dialog box.

Standard Array and Structure Display

This option processes arrays and structures according to the statement with which they are declared. This is the default operating mode of Component Testing. The default report format is the Standard editing.

Extended Array and Structure Display

Arrays of variables may be processed after the keywords VAR or ARRAY, and structured variables after the keywords VAR, ARRAY, or STRUCTURE:

When Extended editing is selected, Component Testing interprets ARRAY and STRUCTURE statements as VAR statements.

The output records in the unit test report are then detailed for each element in the array or structure.

Note   This setting slightly slows down the test execution because checks are performed on each element in the array.

Packed Array and Structure Display

This command has the opposite effect of the Extended editing option. When Packed editing is selected, Component Testing interprets VAR statements as ARRAY or STRUCTURE statements.

Array and structure contents are fully tested, only the output records are more concise.

Note   This setting slightly improves speed of execution because checks are performed on each array as a whole.
