    Verifying Contents of a Custom Window

    First, let me preface this by saying I am new to SilkTest. I am using version 5.01 on Win2k. I am trying to figure out how to verify the contents of a custom window. Silk identifies this window as "AfxWnd42 CQuickdrawWnd.IDE". I am trying to figure out how to verify the contents of this window which are text. I am used to Visual Test and I am finding SilkTest to be a very odd creature.

    Re: Verifying Contents of a Custom Window

    Try having a look at this post
    http://www.qaforums.com/Forum1/HTML/003478.html

    See if it can give you any ideas. Silktest gives you more ways to get at custom objects than any other tool I have used. The trick is to figure out all the gadgets and buttons to try.

    The above post is just one way. That works when the objects methods and properties are declared as public. You can also class map an object if it acts like an object that silk already understands.

    From there it gets a little barbaric but you could us bitmaps and cross cordinates to verify text and control states.

    Most of this stuff is in the tool's help but knowing what to look for is the real battle.

    Re: Verifying Contents of a Custom Window

    Robin:

    Usually, the "Afx" prefix means that the object you are trying to recognize has been derived from a ActiveX and/or Visual Basic control object.

    Have you tried turning on SilkTest's ActiveX extension ? (This needs to be done in 2 different places, with a reboot)

    BTW -- I am a relatively recent convert and I love the Palm OS !

    Re: Verifying Contents of a Custom Window

    The only ActiveX extensions that are there to enable are for web browsers and Java apps. I enabled the ones for IE, but that didn't help me any. Any other suggestions?

    What exactly do you mean by "very odd creature"?
    Is it because it detected that your "Garunteed to be bug free" is spelled incorrectly?
    ...just wondering...

    I test software. My sig means that -nothing- is bug free, no matter what *they* tell you.
