    IE 4.0 / ActiveX / SILK Compatibility?

    Everything was working fine for me under IE 3.0. I had all kinds of scripts working perfectly. Then I upgraded to IE 4.0 and SILK could no longer find the ToolBar in my ActiveX control. To debug the situation I re-declared the ActiveX window just to see what SILK would find. The declaration of the ActiveX control turned out to be so different from IE 3.0, that it looks like I might have to rewrite pretty much the entire script to work with IE 4.0. The ToolBar (amoung other objects) ended up defined a completely different way (See below).

    Has this happened to anyone else? Am I correct to assume that the same SILK scripts can't be run on IE 3.0 and IE 4.0 when ActiveX controls are involved?

    Under IE 3.0, my ActiveX window is declared as...

    window BrowserChild COMPSSpectrum
    parent Browser
    - CustomWin SpectrumEU
    + CustomWin SpectrumEndUserApplication

    Under IE 4.0, my ActiveX window is declared as...

    window BrowserChild COMPSSpectrum
    parent Browser
    - CustomWin SpectrumEU
    + CustomWin TToolBar1
    + CustomWin TPageControl1

    Adam:
    Support for IE 4.x is not available in versions of SilkTest prior to 2.1. In theory, your old IE 3.x compatible code should continue to function with IE4 with only minor tweaking.

    Hi Tony,

    I'm using SILK 2.1.1. I got a hold of Segue tech support and emailed Peter Wick my Frame.inc file so that he could see the differences in window declarations between IE30 and IE40. He's showing it to the engineers and getting back to me. When an ActiveX control is involved it doesn't seem like you can switch to IE40 with minimal tweaking. So far it's looking like a complete overhall of the test scripts
