I found that SilkTest 5.5 SP1 does not support the Taskbar (TaskbarWin) class yet, when using Windows XP.
I have a need to use the Taskbar on Windows platforms. I tested SilkTest 5.5 SP1 and immediately got compile errors due to this issue, on existing scripts.
Funny thing is that I was already running SilkTest 5.5 (regular version) on Windows XP with no major issues after setting XP to use the "old UI". I do client / server Win32 testing (no browsers)...
I have a support request into Segue to find out when this will be addressed. I understand that SilkTest 5.5 SP1 only has beta support for Windows XP.

Does anyone know if the xp taskbar issue has been resolved in silktest v6.+?
The taskbar (more specifically the system tray which is a child of the taskbar, I think I remember) works fine for me on all MS OSs and I am using 6.0.3.
How are you 'talking to it'? The recorder code is hopelessly limited.

I am actually quite new to silk test - and automation generally - so am on a pretty steep learning curve, attempting to automate our installation procedure for regression.
Currently using the recorder then adapting and simplifying as much as poss.
Using v5.5, the recorder seems to see the system tray ok - using:
I was hoping that the if (xp) statement could be removed if we upgraded...
Thanks for your help
Do you mean:
ele if (nt)
I don't think you will ever get around that, but I can't be sure.
What exactly is the problem you are having?
Sorry, I just meant the if statement I had used to handle the XP machines.
If statement was as thus:
if (Taskbar.Exists () == TRUE)
This did not work though as the XP machines did not recognise the Taskbar class and I kept getting "Taskbar Variable not defined" errors.
However, I have changed this now to be just:
as this seems to work ok in the other OS's - should have tried that one first I guess, [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
Thanks again for your help...
