The default value is cpptest_TestObject

testrunner.addSourceLine string

Inserts an additional source line into the testrunner source file for test cases. The line will be inserted at the beginning of the file (after the line including the "portinfo.h" header).


The following option includes the using declaration / directive in the testrunner source:

testrunner.addSourceLine namespace Test
{} using namespace Test;

Alternatively, you can use the following two options in concert (be sure to replace TestSuiteClass.hxx with the actual name of your test suite header file):

testrunner.addSourceLine #include "TestSuiteClass.hxx"

testrunner.addSourceLine using namespace Test;

testrunner.debuggerCommandLine /usr/X11R6/bin/xterm -e xxgdb -x %s &Enables support for the xxgdb debugger.
testrunner.debuggerCommandLine ddd -x %s &Enables support for the ddd debugger.
testrunner.earlyRuntimeInitialization falsePrevents C++test from adding a call to the CppTest_InitializeRuntime() function before a global object constructors call or at the beginning of the main() routine.
edgtk.useEdgPreprocessor false Configures C++test to use the original compiler executable as the preprocessor. By default, C++test uses an internal preprocessor for Microsoft Visual C/C++ compilers.
