PARAMETER_VALUE

If the same test are executed with a range or a list, this value represents the variant currently executing.

Syntax:
PARAMETER_VALUE
Parameters:
-
Returns:
The value assigned to the currently executing test variant.

All tests can be executed more than once and the tests can be varied slightly between each run. For example, one test could be setup to execute 100 times using the value from 0 to 99. Another test could be setup to execute with variants `""`, `"string"` and `NULL`.

The macro PARAMETER_VALUE will in turn hold each of these values. The test can read this macro, setup the list of expected function calls (as well as their simulated values), and stimulate the unit according to this value.

The macro is normally used during the test, but if desired, it can also be called from mocks - i.e. during execution of the unit.
