Silk Test Feature Request

  1. Workbench: The flexibility to modify Start & End row numbers as variables for Visual Tests

    Basically the user would like the ability to control Row numbers as a variable. For example, process the rows 5-10 versus 1-10.

    A corollary to this is to allow a WHERE clause in the ActiveData definition to be used at runtime. Like SilkCentral data sets, allow the user to define a WHERE clasue. For example, WHERE column1 > 10 or column2 = 'BUG' or $ROWNUM > 10

  2. The Ability to undo/redo actions in visual tests.

    Currently in .Net scripts it is possible to undo and redo actions within the script - via the edit menu.
    When working in Visual tests - these menu options are inactive and so this is not possible.
    The user would like to be able to undo and redo actions in visual tests in the same way that they can in .Net scripts.

  4. SilkTest Workbench: Convert Visual Test to .Net Script

    SilkTest workbench - request for functionality to support the conversion of Visual Tests to .Net Scripts.

    The main advantage of Visual Test approach is that it is simple and intuitive for novice QA engineers to get to grips with, especially if these are non-technical and have limited scripting experience.

    But due to the limitations and some missing functionality within the Visual Test framework; it would be beneficial if Visual Tests could be converted into .Net Scripts, for further modification and enhancement by more experienced QA engineers.

  5. Print Multiple Result Silk Test Workbench

    If we want to print result file, we have to print it one by one. It will be take long time and energy if there are >100 result that have to be printed as requirement.
    It will be very helpful if user can print multiple result (the latest version) at once

  6. Transfer files from Agent

    We need the ability to transfer arbitrary binary files (e.g. downloaded files from browsers and captured bitmaps) from the agent to the JVM that's running the test code. The currently available system functions are not applicable to binary files.

    Please provide something like com.borland.silktest.jtf.SystemFunctions#fileReadBytes(handle, start, length)

  7. Watchlist for Variables in debug mode

    One of the essential features that any type of IDE should have is a possibility to keep an eye on the values that a variable has during its lifetime. Otherwise it is really hard to track the variables and it is very time-consuming use message boxes to get the values of specific variables.
    Its a big compromise to code the scripts in other IDEs to transfer them afterwards in SilkTest and finalize with verify routines of SilkTest.

  8. Silk does not show many properties of a window that are available in TestPartner.

    For example, Application, ClassName, DotNETClassName, TypeName, Top, Left, Height, and Width. Application, ClassName and TypeName are particularly useful to identify certain types of windows. Please add the capability of using these in a Silk Locator.

  9. Ability to save all failed Image Verifications with one click

    It would be very beneficial to be able to 'save all' failed Image Verifications in one script with one click. (Former Test Partner user; had that ability.) For example, a view in your application has been enhanced, adding a field. Upon playback, every Image Verification will fail. Once reviewed and results are as expected, we currently have to manually save each check as expected. Very time consuming.

  10. IntelliJ plugin for Silk4J

    We heavily use the IntelliJ suite of tools, and it would be great to have IntelliJ IDEA support with the Silk4J plugin.

  11. Silk Test Workbench: Audit Trail when assets are created, modified, or deleted

    When there are many user (script writer and especially full access) I think it's important to have audit trail to let admin know someone has created, modified, or deleted script or result.

  12. Active Data File Mapping

    The mapping of the Active Data File is currently hard coded path in the visual scripts.

    Could Silk be enhanced to map active data as an external parameter?

    When testing a Visual Script it would be great to point to a different location than the current Visual Script is pointing.

  13. .NET Script References within a Script (SilkTest Workbench 17.0)

    .NET Script References within a Script (SilkTest Workbench 17.0).
    It would rather be easier to reference other scripts within scripts than using the property dialog.

  14. Share object map between multiple scripts

    There should be a provision to share the object map between multiple scripts. i.e. I should be able to use same object map for multiple .net scripts.

  15. PDF Compare

    Silk Test should be able to store a PDF file as an asset.
    Silk Test should be able to validate a PDF file against a stored PDF asset, both for text-content as well as appearance. Appearance should have the same quality configuration as image comparison.

  16. Enhance SilkTest Workbench Visual Test steps so that you can define text for a Result Comment and/or Output in the Properties Pane

    It would be really cool if every step in Visual Test had the ability to define text in the Properties pane to be sent as a Result Comment and/or text to be sent to the Output (Console).

    For example if I have a Comment in my Visual Test that I want the same text in the comment to be written as a Result Comment and to the Output pane during playback I would like to click on the Comment in Visual Test and be able to define two properties:
    1. Result Comment Text
    2. Output Text

    This allows a single…

  17. SilkTest Workbench: Enhance handling of multiple sheets within a single Active Data file in Visual Tests

    SilkTest Workbench needs to be able to handle active data files with multiple sheets better than it currently does. I would think that many users would like to create a single active data file with multiple sheets for data. Then be able to specify which sheet/value to use within expression designer and when typing data from an Active Data file into the application.
    1. The expression designer currently does not allow you to specify a sheet within an Active Data file.
    2. When you do a type keys and for the keys parameter specify Active Data there is also no…

  18. It would be nice to have Project Names include decimals or special characters

    A project Name like "PeopleSoft 9.1" is not allowed due to the decimal in the name field. A name like "PeopleSoft 91" does not look right.

  19. Silk Classic and Open Agent: Enhanced Debug Capabilities

    It would be nice if Silk's Classic and OpenAgent had enhanced debug abilities like the ones below:
    1) Drag and drop the debug button during debug mode //the script writer can jump from one line of code to another easily and the objects stay instantiated
    2)Edit code during debug runtime
    3)A window with the list of variables and their values during runtime. //this way we can monitor the values without having to add print statements everywhere.

  20. Silktest Classic and Open Agent: F12 Go to Definition Enhancement

    Hello,
    I suggest to enhance the functionality of the F12 'Go to Definition' so that the script writer or tester can go back to the file with the locators even if there are compile issues.When there are a lot of people working on one project it is not uncommon for these issues to happen.

    Note that currently when doing F12, the whole project compiles before the user can search for the definition. It is hard to troubleshoot if there are multiple compile issues.
