String Escaping and Interpolation in Custom Languages

By default, intaQt recognizes escape characters such as \n, \t inside string literals and does not interpolate Strings as Template Strings. The Language configuration activates and deactivates the following:

  • Escape mechanisms in Steps files

  • String Interpolation in Steps files

  • Escape mechanisms in UI Steps files

  • String interpolation in UI Steps files

Additional information and examples are available in:

Syntax

interpretStringEscapes = <Boolean>
interpolateWebtestDefinitions = <Boolean>
interpolateStrings = <Boolean>
Parameters

  • interpretStringEscapes
  • true (default) controls the escaping mechanism inside strings
    • For example, /' would be converted to ', or \" would be converted to "
  • false uses intaQt's default escape characters

  • interpolateStrings

  • true (default) activates string interpolation
  • false will not treat Strings as Template Strings, even if they contain eval groups

  • interpolateWebtestDefinitions

  • true (default) evaluates string Expressions in UI Steps View definitions
    • The expressions must start with a $ instead of @
  • false evaluates string Expressions in UI Steps View definitions
    • The expression should start with a @

Example

Language {
interpretStringEscapes = true
}

Note: The false configuration for interpolateWebtestDefinitions is deprecated, but defaults to false for backwards compatibility.

Important! If the implementation in the project assumes the character escapes are not interpreted in a String, test cases might break in an unexpected manner!
