    Go and includes

    For those who used QA Partner there was that add-on pack called Go. This was supposed to help you call the app and then record your include files. Is there a way to do this with Silk without using Go? I already have a script that will find an executable to an application on the machine and start it up but what is a good way to have it automatically write your include files? Any news on why Go is no longer made? We got Silk 5.0 and it's not part of it and we don't want to lose the functionality of what we had with Go.

    There is no way to have silk automatically generate include files for you. That's what you have to do to set everything up. Go is no longer made because it wasn't very well received. It still shipped with the earlier versions of Silk and if you've got that you can get the source for Go because it was written in the native language. You do need a separate license to view some of the files however.

    There is an unsupported version of GO! for SilkTest 5.0 and you can find this in the Download area of www.segue.com. This version of GO! only supports C/C++ apps, according to the readme file.

    You could just use the GenerateDecl() function. The best thing is to just make a standard MainWin declaration for your application. I will take WinZip as an example. Do something like this:

    [ ] window MainWin WinZip
    [ ] tag "WinZip*"

    Then set up a list of string as such:

    [ ] lsDecl = WinZip.GenerateDecl()

    Since you already have a function to search the hard drive for a particular file, you could look for the executable and then just write the above declaration by opening a new file, and writing the MainWin declaration to it. Then use your GenerateDecl() function.

    If you want to get menu information, you could probably write a quick function or two that would help navigate through the menus, get to a particular window, and then do another GenerateDecl() there. You can probably get some good ideas on how to do some of this based on the GO! code.
