Selenium WebDriver - Working with Process and Services

Sometimes, we will need to validate the state of a system service/process, prior during, and after test execution.in this article, I will provide the basic set of tools to accomplish these tasks.


Note: To use the system services/Process, you first need to add the "System.ServiceProcess" as a reference and the "System. Diagnostics" namespace.


Working with services


public class Program

{

static void Main(string[] args)

{

//Define the service that we want to use

ServiceController SpoolerService = new ServiceController("Spooler");


//Define a TimeSpan that we will use to validate the service status

TimeSpan Timer = TimeSpan.FromMilliseconds(30);


//Start a Service

SpoolerService.Start();

SpoolerService.WaitForStatus(ServiceControllerStatus.Running, Timer);


//Stop a Service

SpoolerService.Stop();

SpoolerService.WaitForStatus(ServiceControllerStatus.Stopped, Timer);


//Getting the service status

Console.WriteLine(SpoolerService.Status);


//Getting the service name

Console.WriteLine(SpoolerService.ServiceName);


//Getting the service Display Name

Console.WriteLine(SpoolerService.DisplayName);


//Name of the host ("." is for the local computer)

Console.WriteLine(SpoolerService.MachineName);


//Get all service Dependencies

ServiceController[] Dependencis = SpoolerService.DependentServices;

foreach (var item in Dependencis)

{

Console.WriteLine(item.DisplayName);

}


//Get the type of service

Console.WriteLine(SpoolerService.ServiceType);


//How to run a specific program

WorkingWithProcess.StartInfo.FileName = "notepad.exe";


//Selecting the process by ID

Process Process = Process.GetProcessById(94204);


//Kill the process

Process.Kill();

}

}
