    Testing VB Apps

    Hi,

    I'm no newbie to Silk Test, have been using it for almost two years doing web stuff... however now I'm testing a VB application (client/server with Access DB), and I'm stuck!!

    When I do a window declaration, all objects appear as CustomWin objects.

    I have even tried just making a sample app in VB6 with a load of objects on and they are all still seen as CustomWin objects.

    I haven't got any extensions enabled, and no default browser set. I have even tried adding the AUT in the extensions list and enabling it, but that don't work.

    However, what does seem to work ok is the GMO Segue sample app, where all objects are seen properly.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction so I can get started?

    Cheers in advance.

    MVPL is correct. You have to do this from inside SilkTest as well as from Outside of SilkTest. There is an Extensions program in the start menu. Open that up and point to the VBExe and click ActiveX.

    I think you may need to create extensions.

    Go to both the Extension enabler and Options/Enable. Click on New. Point to the exe file running the vb app. Click on the ActiveX checkbox. I haven't had to do this in a long time and there may be an easier way, but this should get you started.

    Should the primary extension say "None" after you do this? I don't seem to have another other selection in the drop down list that would apply.

    Yes, primary extension should be set to *none* and ActiveX checked.

    Re: Testing VB Apps

    This is getting very exciting(new extention stuff).

    A Couple questions:

    Does this works with executable application that runs within a browser? We have a lot of DLLs and EXEs?

    How many DLLs can you load?

    Is including the main .exe sufficient??

    Tell me how do you do it?

    Re: Testing VB Apps

    I did exactly what MVPL said -- Go to both the Extension enabler and Options/Enable. Click on New. Point to the exe file running the vb app. Click on the ActiveX checkbox -- SilkTest still sees those objects as CustomWin. Can somebody tell me what else I can try? THANKS IN ADVANCE.

    BTW, I am using SilkTest 7.1 on XP OS.
