    GUI Identifies for WinME

    I am experiecing a problem while using GUI indentifiers in Windows ME. The problem is that SilkTest's msw98 identifier includes Windows ME in it, however Windows ME inherits many properties of both Windows 98 and Windows 2000. My specific problem is with the Open dialog - In Windows 95/98 the filename field is a textbox, but in Windows ME/2000/XP it is a combobox.

    As a workaround, I have had to use a different testframe for Windows ME machines, but as you can imagine, this is somewhat of a pain.

    If anyone know's of any workarounds for the GUI identifiers in Windows ME I'd greatly apprecaite a reply.

    Thanks

    Try this.
    window.HtmlTextField("file name|[HtmlComboBox]file name").SetText("testfile.txt")

    I should have mentioned that it is not a browser app.

    Re: GUI Identifies for WinME

    I have filed enhancement requests with Segue for this but I doubt anything will ever be done.

    Like you said, the problem is that Windows ME is more like the GUI of Win 2000 than 98. Unfortunately the big work around is for every GUI difference between ME and 98, your declaration of the window tags has to call a function. In the function you can make calls that will enable you to differentiate between Windows 98 and ME. If you make a call using GetGuiVersion() this allows you to differentiate them, then you need to simply return the proper value of the tag based on the platform. If you are clever in writing your functions, it may not be too difficult to work around in multiple places.
