    Changing windows identifiers

    Hi,

    Basically this is the problem which has a simple solution that i am not aware off.

    When recording the window declarations SilkTest records by window identifier. Now when playing back the script the window identifier changes:

    window dialogbox
    tag"Help - Etc"
    PageList BOIS
    tag"$6781236187"

    Now due to this the tag changes every time the app is opened. How can i resolve this issue. Recording delarations withg Caption, Window ID, Using Caption Recording Multiple Tags.. Any ideas?

    You have to key off the constant properties.
    Usually it's the window ID and Caption. If nothing is constant I am not sure what you are testing. Something has to be constant. It even helps if there is something else associated to this control that you can access. You may want to tab over to your control or something.

    sounds like your developers are using dynamic id's. tell them you need the id's to be static. Or if only 1 or 2 numbers in the id changes, you can use the '*' wildcard in your tag. Or use the caption as the id.
