    Silk Test does not identify the screen Elements


    Hello,
    In the application iam testing, there is a calendar control to select the date.
    As I select the date using calendar control, Silk test doesn't identify the objects of the screen, It will display the screen as "BrowserPage".
    "http://www.nwa.com/" is having the same calendar control for the selection of date.

    I want to write a testcase which selects "Departure Date", "Return Date" and the "number of adults"

    Can anyone give the solution for this problem


    Regards,
    Avinash

    If the object is 'embedded' or obfuscated, then you won't be able to grab it. If the class is hard coded, then you can hard code it into your application. Though once someone changes it, it will break the tool.

    The alternative is to do 'blind' key stroke. This is where you type 'd{tab}22222{tab}00' to get December 25th, 2002. The validation end will be tougher. What you can do is to get something like snag-it pro and use screen to text conversion utility. You can run it to take a snapshot of the screen and covert to ascii format and parse it.

    Those are couple of ways, but there are tons of other ways to do it as well. All depends on what you want to consider...

    OK, I looked. You're right. Silk doesn't identify the calendar icon, but everything else is easily seen by it.

    To locate the calendar icon consider using a cursor offset from the right-end of the adjacent date text field. Furthermore, you can verify that you have the calendar icon by detecting the cursor change.

    It also appears that you'll have to supply a cursor offset coordinates to click specific dates on the calendar.

    These operations are really no-big-deal; no tool can do everything perfectly. If you keep the selection code isolated for these objects future maintenance should be trivial.

    Another alternative: If you have access to the programmer for this screen, ask them for direct support for these two unusual objects.
