the objectmap currently is just a map and replaces the locators (xpath) with a more readable name. but it is necessary to find the object.
it would be very coll if i get a object from the objectmap and can execute some actions on it (like click()).3 votes

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 once3 votes
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:
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,2 votes
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)2 votes
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.2 votes
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.2 votes
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.2 votes
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.2 votes
Currently SilkTest only supports Flex controls running within Adobe Flash Player. Requesting support for Flash Applications. Sample website below:-

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.1 vote
High level Select() is implemented to click to the center, this is as designed at the moment. For example, in a WPFListView if this happens to co-incide with a column separater the row does not get selected. This then requires a coded workround for what must be a common problem.1 vote
When you rename a Visual Test after it has been executed; the current behavior of the Workbench, is that any existing Results assets will be orphaned, and are no longer associated with the parent test. I would like this behavior modified in a future release of SilkTest; so that Results are still associated with the Visual Test, even after renaming it.1 vote
Valid request, that probably will be considered for a future release of Silk Test.
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.1 vote
this is a valid request, but currently not planned.
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)1 vote
