List of files required to run the test. The filenames are relative to the
WORKING_DIRECTORY unless an absolute path is specified.
If set to a list of files, the test will not be run unless all of the files exist.
test.txt is created by test
does not exist:
add_test(NAME baseTest ...) # Assumed to create test.txt add_test(NAME fileTest ...) # The following ensures that if baseTest is successful, test.txt will # have been created before fileTest is run set_tests_properties(fileTest PROPERTIES DEPENDS baseTest REQUIRED_FILES test.txt ) add_test(NAME notRunTest ...) # The following makes notRunTest depend on two files. Nothing creates # the none.txt file, so notRunTest will fail with status "Not Run". set_tests_properties(notRunTest PROPERTIES REQUIRED_FILES "test.txt;none.txt" )
The above example demonstrates how
REQUIRED_FILES works, but it is not the
most robust way to implement test ordering with failure detection. For that,
test fixtures are a better alternative (see
