I am having to test an editor which graphically represents xml files. So an element box points to other boxes (its chidren) and they point to ... etc, etc.
The only way to test whether the graphical editor is correctly representing the xml is to use bitmaps. OK, this is nasty but there doesn't seem to be any choice as the underlying components of the graphical editor do not mimic the parent child relationship in any way.
Because we have to test drag and drop and all sorts of editing, we are beginning to amass hundreds of bitmap control files. Each file is between 2-3 Megabytes.
This bulk is causing delays over the network when checking out the code base for our commit testing system ( we use cvs).
As I understand it Silktest is limited to bitmaps and SYS_GetBitmapCRC function? Is this correct?
Is there any way round this situation with .gif or .png?
