Qt Quick Test


Qt Quick Test is a unit test framework for QML applications. Test cases are written as JavaScript functions within a TestCase 类型:

import QtQuick 2.3
import QtTest 1.0
TestCase {
    name: "MathTests"
    function test_math() {
        compare(2 + 2, 4, "2 + 2 = 4")
    function test_fail() {
        compare(2 + 2, 5, "2 + 2 = 5")

Functions whose names start with test_ are treated as test cases to be executed. See the documentation for the TestCase and SignalSpy types for more information on writing test cases.

注意: There is no binary compatibility guarantee for the Qt Quick Test module. This means that an application that uses Qt Quick Test is only guaranteed to work with the Qt version it was developed against. However, source compatibility is guaranteed.


Test cases are launched by a C++ harness that consists of the following code:

#include <QtQuickTest/quicktest.h>

Where "example" is the identifier to use to uniquely identify this set of tests. Finally, add CONFIG += qmltestcase to the project file:

TARGET = tst_example
CONFIG += warn_on qmltestcase
SOURCES += tst_example.cpp

The test harness scans the specified source directory recursively for "tst_*.qml" files. If QUICK_TEST_SOURCE_DIR is not defined, then the current directory will be scanned when the harness is run. Other *.qml files may appear for auxillary QML components that are used by the test.

-input command-line option can be set at runtime to run test cases from a different directory. This may be needed to run tests on a target device where the compiled-in directory name refers to a host. For example:

tst_example -input /mnt/SDCard/qmltests

It is also possible to run a single file using the -input option. For example:

tst_example -input data/test.qml
tst_example -input <full_path>/test.qml

注意: Specifying the full path to the qml test file is for example needed for shadow builds.

If your test case needs QML imports, then you can add them as -import options to the test program command-line.

IMPORTPATH is specified in your .pro file, each import path added to IMPORTPATH will be passed as a command-line argument when the test is run using "make check":

IMPORTPATH += $$PWD/../imports/my_module1 $$PWD/../imports/my_module2

-functions command-line option will return a list of the current tests functions. It is possible to run a single test function using the name of the test function as an argument. For example:

tst_example Test_Name::function1

-help command-line option will return all the options available.

tst_example -help

在 QML 测试之前执行 C++

To execute C++ code before any of the QML tests are run, the QUICK_TEST_MAIN_WITH_SETUP macro can be used. This can be useful for setting context properties on the QML engine, amongst other things.

The macro is identical to QUICK_TEST_MAIN , except that it takes an additional QObject* argument. The test framework will call slots and invokable functions with the following names:

Name 目的 Since
void applicationAvailable() Called right after the QApplication object was instantiated. Use this function to perform setup that does not require a QQmlEngine 实例。 Qt 5.12
void qmlEngineAvailable( QQmlEngine *) Called when the QML engine is available. Any import paths , plugin paths ,和 extra file selectors will have been set on the engine by this point.

This function is called once for each QML test file, so any arguments are unique to that test. For example, this means that each QML test file will have its own QML engine.

This function can be used to register QML types and add import paths , amongst other things.

Qt 5.11
void cleanupTestCase() Called right after the test execution has finished. Use this function to clean up before everything will start to be destructed. Qt 5.12

The following example demonstrates how the macro can be used to set context properties on the QML engine:

#include <QtQuickTest>
#include <QQmlEngine>
#include <QQmlContext>
class Setup : public QObject
    Setup() {}
public slots:
    void qmlEngineAvailable(QQmlEngine *engine)
        engine->rootContext()->setContextProperty("myContextProperty", QVariant(true));
#include "tst_mytest.moc"

.moc include is based on the file name of the .cpp file. For example, in the example above, the .cpp file is named tst_mytest.cpp . If the file was named MyTest.cpp , the include would be:

#include "MyTest.moc"
