While I tried recording on a online course using silkperformer, noticed that a few actions were not recorded. consider the below example;
1. Launch an online Course, this opens up in a new IE window
2. Navigate to the different pages on the course using the next button present on the course pages
3. While we click on any of the images or icons on the course page, these actions do not get recorded. Unless these images/icons are not clicked I will not be able to navigate to the next page as the next button would be disabled
Is there a way out to record these actions as well using SilkPerformer.
Any help is highly appreciated. Thanks.
your question is a little confusing.
Is there a way to handle these client side actions? Could we record them - as I would need them when I launch the course using a different user.
no, it is not possible. SilkPerformer is a tool for simulating browsers via sending HTTP traffic. client side scripts are not executed.
I'm still confused as to your question though.
the entire point of SilkPerformer is to load test a server by sending it http. Can you explain why you need the client actions to be executed if they have no effect on the server?
I'm kind of in the same boat with Corey on this one though, without some code/script examples it pretty hard for any of us to offer any useful help/hints/tips.
But you may try making two recordings with different users and compare the scripts for differences. Those differences will probably be the things you'll need to parameterize and/or parse.
