TBox escaping


Short Summary


If your test data contains one or more of the characters {, }, [, ] and ", they have to be escaped in order for TBox to treat them as regular string-values.
This is because these characters are used in the syntax for dynamic values.


In order to escape a string follow these two steps :

  1. Enclose the part of the string you want to escape with " at the front and back.
  2. If the part of the string you want to escape contains " you need to double those.

I struggled a bit with this today: for dropdown values which need to be filled into an combobox it requires a few extra  escapes on Tosca 10.3

If you would like to enter 'a 8" pipe' you will need to put 'a 8"""" pipe' as the value otherwise it can not find the item or tosca is saying it's not escaped correctly

Here is another XTestStepValue value example of a commandline call that uses a TCP "TestArtefactsDirPath" containing a part of a directory path with spaces.


   C:\Windows\system32\certutil.exe -p 1234 -importPFX """"{CP[TestArtefactsDirPath]}"\Certs\test_cert.pfx"""

Translated Value:

   C:\Windows\system32\certutil.exe -p 1234 -importPFX "C:\Test Artefacts\Certs\test_cert.pfx"


Two aspects of escaping have to be considered:

  1. Masking the quotes in order to have them present in the string: """
  2. Masking the braces of the dynamic TCP value in order to get this dynamic expression translated: "{CP[TestArtefactsDirPath]}"
