  1. Show the line number in the source code

    In the source code not a continuous line numbers will be displayed next to the content. Line numbers to the left of the source code would be very handy.

  2. Select ...When Clause/ Switch() ..Case

    Select ...When / Switch() ..Case Clause . Silk Performer BDL language should support these clauses in order to have better control over programming logic and test data usage.
    Especially this will be useful when dealing with DB_Prepare statements etc if one is interested to parse and execute sql queries at run time based on certain testdata/ conditions.

    There won’t be a direct integration into any further source code control at this time. The approach we are pursuing is the improve the integration into SilkCentral and use it as proxy to SVN and many other SCC systems.

  4. Password is not captured in encrypted format in Silk Performer test script for Citrix Session

    In the current version our Citrix support is not able to detect the type of the input field during recording [Encryption]. Full encrypted password in captured test scripts is highly desirable.

  5. Configurable Truelog Generation during tryscript

    We can control this by setting truelog on error for load tests. But this cannot be done for tryscripts. The truelog file gets automatically generated and it poses a problem during some loop tests. I would like a feature to turn off the truelog generation if needed.

  6. Pause a script , modify the data in data file / modify the script and resume the script.

    Currently we cannot make any modification to the script or to the data once the script has stated Executing in the workload as a load test. We should add feature to silk performer in which we should be able to do exactly this..

  9. I'd request the SP to support the Source Control Mercurial for Silk Performer. We're using SP Version 9 plus update.

    We are using the Silk Performer Ver 9 plus update the official Source Control Tool in the company is mercurial, it will add value if SP integrates with Mercurial.

    Please let me know if you need further detail.

    Regard.

  11. "Silk Performer Recorder Spy DLL - Could not connect to host localhost on port 19105"

    Please add a check to ensure hooks have been removed from extend.ini when the recorder is closed - even if the Browser is left open leaving redundant hooks.

  13. Currently in SilkMeter 2008 there is no way to remotely log off a user who is not actively using the product and just forgot to logout.

    Currently in SilkMeter 2008 there is no way to remotely log off a user who is not actively using the product and just forgot to logout, therefore taking a license.

  14. Check for variables which have been declared but not used

    This would not have any major impact but it would be good if SilkPerformer had a code verification option to check that all variables declared are actually used somewhere. A warning during compile would suffice.

  15. Add Plugin to support Dragon Naturally Speaking

    I know the general rule is that Silk Performer does not support 3rd party plug ins, but were you to provide support for Dragon Naturally Speaking it would greatly enhance the ability to provide the appropriate level of comments for those of us for whom typing is somewhat difficult.
