Silk Test Feature Request

  1. Please add array variables type to Silktest Workbench - Visual Tests.

    This would be helpful when reading data from an Active Data file, or working with large amounts of data from the application. The usage of a loop to read data and store into an array variable is greatly enhanced, as opposed to only having a single variable to use, in current versions. This is available of course in .NET interface side, but requires much more knowledge/ability to apply.

  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. Several Code Debug improvement ideas

    It would be nice if debugging could be improved with the following features.
    1) the ability to drag and drop the play cursor so code can be jumped or rerun
    2) the ability to edit code during runtime
    3) the addition of an immediate window so variables values can be changed during runtime
    4) the addition of a watch window which allows the drag and drop of variables and entire expressions for review
    5) the ability to navigate through code more easily by being to jump to function definitions by right clicking function names and return to previous line etc..

  5. 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.

  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. 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.

  10. .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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. Split the Setup into smaller pieces

    Today, the Setup is 958 MB in size. This probably includes everything from Silk Classic over Silk .NET through Silk4J. I only need a small part of that (Silk4J in my case).

    Would it be possible to provide the individual parts as separate downloads? I guess it rarely happens that anyone uses all three types in parallel.

  14. Request for Enhanced Object Map functionality

    Due to the large number of controls in my application under test; it was necessary to split the Object Map into smaller sections, as it became difficult to locate controls. However when I record actions against new controls; the new object is always inserted into the same Object Map, which is not usually where I want it to reside. I would like to see the current behavior enhanced to allow me to choose which Object Map I want to use in this scenario. This would make it much easier to maintain my maps, and save me the effort of copying…

  15. Add a detach method for single applications instead of all applications

    Currently, the only way to reload Open Agent to grab any changes to locators involves Desktop.detachAll() and Desktop.attach(testApp.exe).
    This involves keeping track of any other applications that are open and re-attaching them as well. Please add a Desktop.detach(testApp.exe) method to avoid removing all applications.

  16. Improve documentation for Java

    Look at the documentation of http://documentation.microfocus.com/help/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.borland.silktest.workbench.doc%2Flangref%2FSAP%2FGetItemTextMethodSapTree_ref.html

    What is "We recommend using SAPTree.GetNodeText() instead of SAPTree.GetItemText(), because it is easier to use."
    Well it's maybe easier to use, but provides a totally different functionality.

    A better description for this would be

    /**
    
    * Gets the text of a specific row (identified by the node key) and column (identified by the column name).
    * @see de.kaba.framework.eacm.silk.ISilkTree#getColumnNames()
    * @see de.kaba.framework.eacm.silk.ISilkTree#getNodeKeys()
    * @param nodeKey Key of the node, e.g. from getNodeKeys()
    * @param itemName Column name, e.g. from getColumnNames()
    */

    This applies to many methods I have seen so far. The documentation is really…

  17. Provide more information with a KeyNotFoundException error message

    Currently the error message states 'The given key was not present in the dictionary'. It would be useful for the error message to name the key and the error line.

  18. Combine SAP scripting functionality with native control functionality

    The Silk4J SAP class library is a simple call forwarding of the functionality provided by SAP scripting. This should be enhanced by adding the functionality of native windows.

    Example: on a native window, you have the typeKeys() method. See http://documentation.microfocus.com/help/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.borland.silktest.silk4net.doc%2Flangref%2Fcommon%2FTypeKeysMethodIKeyable_ref.html

    It works on SAP windows if you don't have a Premium license. This functionality is gone(!) when you buy a Premium license, because the SapWindow class does not provide the typeKeys() method any more.

    All SAP classes should provide native class functionality (e.g. from common class reference)

  19. optimize clarity of asset browser in silk test

    When using Silk test in conjunction with Silk Central it is necessary to have an good clarity over your projects especially when the amount of files increases more and more.
    Silk Central uses a good to handle file management to group projects into folder and/or subfolders, which gives the user the possibility to structure his files as he requires.
    Please add this file management structure also in Silk Test asset browser to make the dealing with huge projects more user friendly and comfortable

  20. Functionality which retrieves the hostname and IE version

    When running .NET scripts remotely on machine running Open Agent it would be nice to have a feature where the Remote hostname is recorded into the results. Also, when testing different version of IE Browsers it would be nice to have functionality that could return the version of IE information to the results log,
