state transition testing
how to test multiple pages in silk test ( by enter login and password from one page which leads to another page like that) .And how to recognize the list box and combo values while recording for capture and playback
Re: state transition testing
While Silk supports it, using capture/playback is the worst methodology possible for creating automated tests. Why? Because the test suite becomes impossible to maintain as the product being tested evolves. What you built yesterday often must be completely rewritten today.
At a basic level, the process of logging in and moving from page to page is almost identical to a manual process. Picking menu items, clicking buttons and setting text all have command equivalents: Pick(), Click() and SetText().
Getting the contents of container objects such as list or combo boxes is easily accomplished with a GetContents() call.
To learn Silk I'd suggest that you call Segue and ask about obtaining an evaluation copy. It'll have a copy of the documentation. Working through the examples should provide useful insights about how it may apply to your testing needs.
