Silk Test Feature Request

  1. Provide a GetColumnName method for ActiveData class

    Currently if a user checks the "use first row as a header" checkbox for an activedata asset then there is no way to find out column names within a .Net script. It would be useful to have a GetColumnName method where the user could pass in the column number and have the column name returned.

  2. Show subfiles that were created from the Properties pane of a script.

    In Silk Test Workbench, I would like to see an option to automatically display tabs for sub-files in scripts without having to open them in from the Properties pane. To clarify, by sub-files, I mean Files that were added by right-clicking in the properties pane and clicking Add File.

  3. Provide a Random function in Visual Test Expression Designer

    Please consider providing a Random function that would allow users to generate random values for common input fields such as Zip Code, Contact Number etc; within the Expression Designer when working with Visual Tests. Currently there is no means to accomplish this within Visual Tests; so the random values can only be created and consumed in .Net scripts, or sent back to a calling Visual Test as parameters.

  4. ability to provide a timeout for script execution/repetetion

    Silktest Workbench:
    Timeout for a repetition would be great
    Background: My test starts after the software was build and has been deployed into a kind of container. But it lasts some time until the version is available. If the version is not available I have to force another update of this container by clicking on a certain button and look again after 5 mins. This whole process should take no longer than 2 hours. Then the test shall send an error. So currently I have solved it with using labels (24 in summary) but I would like handel it with…

  5. SilkTest Workbench: Provide the Cursor Class

    I would like to see SilkTest Workbench introduce the Cursor class; so that we can monitor the state of the cursor for changes state, or know when the cursor enters a specified state.

    This class is already available in SilkTest Classic, and provides methods such as Wait() and GetType(); but I would like it introduced in the Workbench client.

  10. The properties of result step should include the value of st_LastReturnValue

    When using the results file to debug a Visual Test execution, there are often no details returned with regards to the value returned from methods that retrieve information from a control, e.g.:

    - GetMultiText
    - Exists
    - IsFocussed

    It would be beneficial if the result step details also included the value of st_LastReturnValue. For example, if a user wanted to check whether an Exists call returned True/False an additional step would be required to log that information to the results.

  11. Not sure why we don't have some basis method built-in by default like split, listempty, etc

    Need few methods built into silktest like listempty, split based on pattern, etc.

    More like handy methods dbconnectexcel()

  12. Silk4Net: Allow use of Screen Coordinates in Locators

    Please consider supporting the use of Screen coordinates within Object Maps and Locator strings; as it would be useful in situations where controls have no unique properties to identify them. I would prefer to identify such controls based on their position on the window; rather than having to use an Index value.

  13. Get notification due to changes in controls

    SilkTest should provide a notification functionality if a control changes the state. For example if the content of a table changes it would be recommended to get a notification.

  14. Automatic Sorting in ObjectMap and in Item name

    Sorting in SilkTest ObjectMap:
    In SilkTest ObjectMap - Sorting happens automatically. For instance, changing the ‘DashboardTest’ name to ‘RDashboardTest’ - name has been changed and it has sorted automatically. User does not want this ObjectMap sorted automatically. It should stay in its current position and once Name is being clicked then ObjectMap should be sorted.

    Sorting in ObjectMap Item:
    Form ObjectMap Item Name - hit Edit and change the item name to ‘BAddedOrgAlertPage_ClientAcctNo_DomElement’ - Item name is changed and sorted automatically. User does not want this ObjectMap Item Name sorted automatically. It should stay in its current position and once…

  15. Inserting a new sub object/sub tree element/branch always positioned in bottom

    In the object map, when we right click on an object tree to add a sub object/sub tree element/branch, it would be great if it can start a blank one just below the main object rather than in the bottom of the sub tree.
    It relieves a lot of pain while handling huge object maps.

  20. Allow xBrowser clicks to have the mouse co-ordinates as an optional value

    For example: Silktest will record

    desktop.<DomLink>find("v131d003.BrowserWindow.Cadastro").click(MouseButton.LEFT, new Point(28, 6));

    I would like the recording to create a script with the line:

    desktop.<DomLink>find("v131d003.BrowserWindow.Cadastro").click();

    The problem is that testing on systems with a different screen resolution will cause the test to fail unless we manually remove all co-ordinates before testing,
