      • GenerateDecl function equivalent for the Open Agent

        The Classic Agent provides a function called GenerateDecl which returns the declaration for a window.

        This request is to implement an equivalent function for the Open Agent.

        • 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

          • 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.

            • 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 (svizzini1_view_banking\") 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 IDE behaviour…

              • 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.

                • Silktest Classic and Open Agent: F12 Go to Definition Enhancement

                  Hello,
                  I suggest to enhance the functionality of the F12 'Go to Definition' so that the script writer or tester can go back to the file with the locators even if there are compile issues.When there are a lot of people working on one project it is not uncommon for these issues to happen.

                  Note that currently when doing F12, the whole project compiles before the user can search for the definition. It is hard to troubleshoot if there are multiple compile issues.

                  • Silk Classic and Open Agent: Enhanced Debug Capabilities

                    It would be nice if Silk's Classic and OpenAgent had enhanced debug abilities like the ones below:
                    1) Drag and drop the debug button during debug mode //the script writer can jump from one line of code to another easily and the objects stay instantiated
                    2)Edit code during debug runtime
                    3)A window with the list of variables and their values during runtime. //this way we can monitor the values without having to add print statements everywhere.

                        • 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…

                          • Open Agent recorder does not pickup extended winclasses

                            Currently when using SilkTest Classic and the Open Agent, the Open Agent recorder does not pickup extended winclasses that a user has defined in an include file. For Example:

                            [-] winclass MyDomTextField:DomTextField
                            [ ]
                            [-] SetText(String sText)
                            [ ] this.TypeKeys(sText)

                            This results in a lot a manual work to redeclare window declarations with the correct winclass and this recording behaviour is not in-line with Classic Agent functionality, which would successfully use custom winclasses when recording.

                            • Provide an index locator attribute similar to the Classic Agent Index tag

                              If testing localized versions of an application, an "index" locator attribute similar to the Classic Agent index tag would be useful as an alternative way to identify controls.
