SilkTest Workbench: Enhance Results Details
In previous versions of SilkTest Workbench the 'Command Details' in 'Result - Details' would only contain data when some values were actually entered into a textfield, or some other control.
For other activities such as retrieving properties, such as the number of Items in a ListBox control; the behavior was that the value in the Column Details would remain empty. This was good as it allowed you to quickly scan results and find steps where data was entered into the AUT. Please see the following pdf file:
With SilkTest 14 however; this behavior has been changed and now we find that the Column Details is always populated, regardless of whether data was entered into some control or not.
So for example, if you have a Step that calls the Items or ItemCount property against a DomListBox control; you find that the value of Column Details is no longer empty, and instead repeats the current value while looping through the list of Items in control.
This is both confusing and unnecessary from a readability perspective; as the presence of this data makes it much more difficult to scan the column for the information that you are interested in, such as which data was actually entered into the AUT at any point in the test.
It would therefore be beneficial if this was reverted to the previous behavior; or if users had some means to suppress it altogether.
