Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Passing arguments to an Exe

I have an .exe of PB app "sales." While I type c:\sales.exe, I will also pass a parameter such as c:\sales.exe auto.

Now I want to access this parameter in my app object, and so I have to write code in the app object. How do I refer to the parameter that I am trying to pass to the sales.exe ?

You can access the command line in two ways. In your application object, goto the open event. There is an argument to the event commandparm which is the contents of the command line.

Also anywhere in your code you can call the CommandParm() function to get the contents of the command line.
