I am trying to get a 'stub' for a declaration for a webpage with a dynamically generated table in it using the recorder. I never get anything like a 'Table' keyword in the recorded declaration. I've tried going to Options > Extensions > ... > Borderless Table, Level and increasing the slider to 1.0, but it didn't help.
Basically, my dynamic table is coming out as a bunch of HtmlText members.
I am not necessarily interested in using the recorder, but I don't know how to manually code the declaration, so I was looking for clues from the recorder, but I figure that if the recorder can't generate a table declaration, it probably can't work with a manually coded declaration. I don't know if this is true or not.
I've never really played with tables before, so any suggestions are appreciated.
I am using SilkTest International and have tried IE 5.0 and IE 6.0.
do you know how the table is implemented?
I had similar problems with tables that were generated by java server pages. The table contends were located in a div-element to make the table scroll able.
The VO-extension was not useful to me.
Using the DOM-extension I had to switch of the "Form" checkbox in the extension dialog.
This works with the IE6.
Because of a bug in the IE5 Silk is not able to record elements in a div-element or to act on them properly.
Yeah, I do know some about how the page is implemented. It is generated by a CGI script. I've been sifting through the source, and I think I might see the problem. The overall structure of the page looks like:
</font><blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica">code:</font><hr /><pre style="font-size:x-small; font-family: monospace;"><table> // 1
<table> // 2
<table> // 3
</table> // end 3
<table> // 4
</table> // end 4
<table> // 5
</table> // end 5
<table> // 6
</table> // end 6
<table> // 7 (I want this one)
<table> // 8
<table> // 9
<table> // 10
</table> // end 10
<table> // 11
</table> // end 11
</table> // end 9
</table> // end 8
</table> // end 7
</table> // end 2
</table> // end 1</pre><hr /></blockquote><font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica">I think that some of the tables might not meet Silk's minimum requirement of '2 or more rows' and 'at least 1 row has 2 or more columns'. I'll need to look more carefully at each of the tables to be sure.
Has anyone worked around the limitations above (from the Help).
