  1. The properties of result step should include the value of st_LastReturnValue

    When using the results file to debug a Visual Test execution, there are often no details returned with regards to the value returned from methods that retrieve information from a control, e.g.:

    - GetMultiText
    - Exists
    - IsFocussed

    It would be beneficial if the result step details also included the value of st_LastReturnValue. For example, if a user wanted to check whether an Exists call returned True/False an additional step would be required to log that information to the results.

    • Silk Test: Support for Gupta:ChildTable control

      Provide support for Gupta:ChildTable controls.

      You can find background on the control type from http://www.guptatechnologies.com/ developed in Centura Programming Language.

      We have tried unsuccessfully to class map the control to a standard class.

      • Silk Test Workbench - Ability to clean up database by removing unused assets

        My application has evolved, many buttons and images which I used to interact with no longer exist.

        The Visual Tests which interacted with these objects have now been removed as the tests are no longer relevant.
        My customer has the following issue:-

        New object map entries have now been created for the evolved application, to replace the buttons and images which no longer exist in my application.

        There are now many obsolete entries in the object map which I no longer require.

        The existing “Purge Asset Version” feature is not suited to my scenario as I have a single object…

        • 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:

          • Scroll breakpoint to centre of page when debugging .Net Scripts

            In SilkTest Workbench when a user sets a breakpoint and runs their test - when the breakpoint is reached Silk Test returns to view, but the breakpoint line is scroll up off the screen, the breakpoint line is obscured by the modules and functions dropdown menus at the top of the script. The user would like to have the breakpoint scrolled to the centre of the screen or perhaps to the top, but under the two dropdown menus. (SI 2780346)

            • 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.

              • Provide a native function to get text from a dynaically generated AJAX table

                Currently when an AJAX table is dynamically generated each cell has the same set of identifiers. As long as you know what text you want to verify, you can navigate around the table by columns and rows and use text recognition to compare the contents of each cell. Can this be compacted into a native call e.g.

                getDynamicCellText(x,y)

                • When in debug mode - SilkTest always shows the local variables window - make this optional

                  When seting a breakpoint and running a .Net script in debug mode - SilkTest always shows the local variables window.
                  The customer would like to have this as an optional window - where they can select if they want to see this or not when debugging. (SI 2780347)

                  • Allow the ability to natively identify JRadioButtons inside a JTableCell

                    Currently the only way to action a JRadioButton inside a JTableCell is to use the co-ordinates parameter of ClickCell().
