  2. Silk Test Workbench: Option for hiding disabled steps in a Silk Test Workbench visual test

    When debugging a script, it is often useful to disable scripts. At times it would be helpful to be able to "hide disabled steps". This would let you focus your debugging efforts on which steps are functional. This is especially true for more complex scripts.

  3. Workbench: Enhance Functionality when Inserting Control from AUT.

    When using 'Insert > Control From > Application under Test' in Workbench Visual Test; after choosing the control from the application, the user is prompted to select the method to be used with the object.

    I would like to see this enhanced with wizard-type functionality; that also prompts the user for any other parameters or keys required for the chosen method to work.

  4. Script modules to be referred to by id

    When you change a script name, you have to then go into every script which references the old script name and update the name. The scripts should be handled on an ID base so the name can be maintained at will.

  6. Definitions on right clicking function names

    Can we have the ability to navigate through code so when you right click a function name or variable the code jumps to variable declaration or function definition. And maybe also a way to get back, like we had in test partner.

  7. SilkTest Workbench: Enhanced 'Condition Designer' options

    Most of our automation scripts are created as Visual Tests; and for a number of reasons do not like to use Application Configurations and Object Maps in our projects.

    With this type of approach however; it is difficult to create the type of decision logic that we need, because we cannot enter full XPath queries in the Value field of the condition designer.

    For example; if I wanted to test that a dialog button exists on screen, and run a child test if this returns True; I would like to enter the following Xpath for Value1 in the Condition Designer:

  8. Silk Test Workbench: Hot key for adding "Control From" during record time

    There is a way to add verifications during record time, but not to add "control from" during record time. This same screen needs to be available during record time, and there needs to be a consistent hot key for adding these while recording and not recording.

  9. Provide a function that returns the user that executed a test in Silk Test Workbench

    Currently, it is not possible to get hold of the username of the user that executed a script as a string in either a VB.NET script or a Visual Test.

    This information is currently only available in the run result that would be created by the user that executed the script. This information is also present in the entries that are created in the Details tab of the result.

    Can we provide a function that returns the user that executed a test in Silk Test Workbench as string to a VB.NET script or a Visual Test.

  10. Draw a line after a Function

    Two things from Test Partner that would be nice in Silk Test
    1. In Test Partner when you typed Sub name or Function and a name it would automatically put in the End Sub or End Function.
    2. Also in Test Partner after (or before) a Sub or Function a Line would automatically be created to show where each Function is at. This would also make reading Functions easier in Silk Test

  11. Edit the position of "End Repeat" object for Test Logic/Repetition control

    If the user makes a mistake and wishes to edit the "end repeat" index or move the position in the Test Steps section (the Rubik's cube column).

  13. TestPartner Shared module does not exist in SilkTest 13.5

    TestPartner Shared module does not exist in SilkTest 13.5
    Very useful to include modules for all test scripts without adding them manually one by one using Add .NET Script Reference.

  14. Change Playback Settings in VB.NET Script

    SilkTest should be able to change the playback settings in vb.net scripts (e.g. 'Save all information', 'Screen Capture' etc.).

  15. Abitlity to handle non-printable characters in Visual Tests

    In the expression editor of Visual Tests there should be the ability to handle non-printable characters. For example to Find or Replace characters like Tabs or CarriageReturns in local variables. Those characters are very often relevant in captured text sequences. And must be identified or eliminated in those cases.

  16. Workbench Abort Test Hotkeys(ALT + F12)

    The Workbench documentation states that the replay hotkeys <ALT + F12> '.. should stop the playback while the SilkTest Workbench is minimised'.

    However when replaying a Driver Script or Visual Test that calls a number of child Tests; the Hotkeys will only terminate the currently executing script, and will not affect the Driver. Consequently it will continue to execute any subsequent tests. To abort the entire run the keys have to be pressed multiple times, depending on the number of scripts called.

    It would be preferable if the Hotkeys aborted both the executing test and driver script; or perhaps Microfocus…

  17. Hide Identify Object tool when Start Identify button is clicked

    This one has been challenging for awhile. Would be nice if there was an option to hide the Identify Object tool once the Start Identify button is clicked.

    Currently;

    Using Silktest Workbench click the Identify Object button.
    Select an application (such as iexplore.exe).
    The Identify Object tool opens.
    Set Selection Mode: Click
    Now click the Start Identify button.
    Notice the Identify Object window is still front focus. It's basically in the way and the user has to manually move the window. The minimize button on the Identify Object window is disabled so user can not minimize the window to get…

  18. Silktest Workbench - Find/Replace text in all scripts

    Currently you can Find/Replace only in one script. This does not cover many cases when you are forced to make similar changes in e.g. 100 scripts.
