  2. Allow identifiers longer than 30 characters

    SIlktest 14.0.1. Open Agent:
    In /Options/Recorder/Browser, the "Maximum Attribute Value Length" can be set much higher than the default of 20. For example, 120.

    So, if I record the following(see below), it will return the entire attribute
    [-] DomTextField ComMrvProvisionCsmodelOsEservi
    [ ] locator "INPUT[@id='com.xyz.provision.csmodel.os.eservice.CustomerModel.customerName2']".

    But as you can see the identifier gets truncated at 30 characters.
    Per MicroFocus Support, this cannot be changed.
    It would be nice to have this be a configurable value as well.

  3. When pressing "ctrl+->" (control and right arrow) against the following two lines of code: [ ] string sCFG_QaAutomationDirectory = "\\Dtc

    When pressing "ctrl+->" (control and right arrow) against the following two lines of code:

        [ ] string sCFG_QaAutomationDirectory = "\\Dtc230042ba890a\view\svizzini1_view_banking\"
    
    [ ] //this is a comment.

    The user would expect the SilkTest Classic IDE to stop at the end of the last string (svizzini1viewbanking") on the first line, however it does not, SilkTest continues on to the next line to the first character (t) of this.

    In Eclipse 3.7 and notepad, pressing “ctrl+-> stops at the end of the line after the very last character "

    Therefore it would be a good idea if the Silk Test Classic…

  4. SilkTest Workbench: Allow Multi-Delete of Object Map Items

    In the current release of SilkTest(14); it is not possible to select and delete multiple items within Object Map, simultaneously. Each item has to first be selected, before clicking the Edit button; and then delete the item via the right-click context menu. This can be tedious when you have a lot of unneeded items in the Object Map; so please consider allowing multiple item selections within Object Maps.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Record "VerifyProperties" for OpenAgent similar to Classic Agent

    Please implement a Record-VerifyProperties function in the OpenAgent similar to ClassicAgent. Meaning that you can record properties of all child objects of the object that is under the mouse cursor rather than just that object.

  10. 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…

  13. 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,

  14. 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)

  15. Silk Test Workbench Options should be able to be pushed to govern all users

    The custom options I save within Silk Test Workbech should be able to be pushed to all users that log in.

    Currently in Silk test Workbench the options are saved per user, as an Administrator I wish to ensure the settings I apply are pushed to all users to ensure that all users are using the same options as myself.

    This functionality would allow me to better manage my users and to ensure continuity throughout recording and playback of tests.

  16. From Support Case 2584528

    The customer would like to see support introduced for VB and ActiveX Form controls embedded in MS Excel.

    Currently it is challenging to automate this scenario with SilkTest; as the objects are merely recognised as the generic 'Control' class through the Open Agent, indicating that they are not identified as standard control types.

    Consequently low level events such as coordinated clicks and typekeys are recorded against them; which is not ideal and can potentially cause errors when replayed on different operating systems.

    At present the best option available to handle these; is to try class-mappping them to standard control types.

  17. 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.

  18. Please add support for rich inbuilt reports &logs while test cases or suite execution is finished as a default mode comes under silk test

    Please add support for rich inbuilt reports & logs(HTML report) while test cases or suite execution is finished as a default mode comes under silk test not for silk central test manager.

    Note: Most of the tools are supported for rich inbuilt reports & logs (Html report) as default mode.

  20. 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
