  1. SilkTest Workbench: Enhance Results Configuration Options

    When executing Visual Tests or .Net scripts in the Workbench; the following general options are available for configuring how Results are generated:

    Save results with a new run number.
    Append Results to current run number.
    Overwrite existing run number with new Results.
    Do not save this Result.

    As our Visual Tests are executed every night, we do not really need to save every single result; but they are obviously useful for debugging purposes, in the event that a test does fail.

    It would therefore be useful if some additional options were available; that allowed user to specify the number of…

  2. Silk Test: Ability to perform object recognition on changing attributes in the application under test

    Important: The ability to perform object recognition on changing attributes in the application under test. Customer wants to know how Silk Test will behave upon recognition of an object that has changed in the AUT- will it stop the test, or do a best guess and move on…

    - Request for Silk Test to have a way to identify objects that have had their attributes changed. The functionality should demonstrate the following:
    o The process of identifying objects that have changed during playback
    o The way that the changed objects are identified after play back
    o The process to update…

  3. 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:

  4. 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.

  5. Verification steps should highlight the control being verified in the Screen Preview

    In a Visual Test step the Screen Preview window highlights the control that is being interacted with apart from Verification steps. The Screen Preview window should also highlight the control that is being verified in a particular Visual Test step.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. Count all assets in SilkTest Workbench

    It is possibly to get the number of versions of a single asset in Workbench by highlighting the script / object and selecting File | Show All Versions. Please extend this so that it will show all versions of a selected asset type in one go e.g. all versions of all Visual Test.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Per Incident 2644048: Allow ResExtract to show results for each sub-plan inside a master-plan.

    I can informed that this behaviour is currently as designed. It is not possible for ResExtract to extract results for each plan that is a sub-plan of a master plan because what ResExtract does is that it takes a res file and puts the contained data to a txt file. That means this will happen once a res file is available - so it cannot happen earlier. If a master plan is executed, a res file will not be available during the execution of the sub-plans in the master plan, therefore, no data will be extracted until the end of…

  13. 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.

  16. OpenAgent neeeds to support GetSubItemCount() and GetSubItems()

    Currently in SilkTest 13.5 openagent does not support methods few methods that classic agent supports. The methods are GetSubItemCount() and GetSubItems(). It would be great if we get those in future

  17. 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

  19. Need support to Customize Debug Logging

    It would be better to have a support for logging messages with differnet levels. Like, 'Info', 'Debug', 'Error', 'Fatal', 'warning' etc..In such a way that, I have all types of messages in my script or functions. But, At times, i wanna suppress warnings or debug messages and want to log only certain messages like, errors or Fatal messages etc.. Then, it should work as such.

  20. 4Test: ParseDateFormat should support Time elements

    Right now ParseDateFormat only supports date formatted strings, not times. Either it or a different function should support parsing time formats intermixed with date formats.

    FormatDateTime wil do the reverse for Dates and Times- it would be nice if all those formats were supported in converting a string into a DATETIME
