    What to do with Dynamic tags (Outlook Express specifically)

    I am testing a browser based application that sends email notification to users. Therefore, I have set up my test users with email addresses and am using Outlook Express to verify their email activity. However I have encountered the following problem:

    Outlook Express uses the CAPTION "Outlook Express - User Name"

    I realise that I could use something other than the Caption for window identification, but it is just so handy. Is there anyway to use the CAPTION regardless?

    why not set the caption to "Outlook Express - *"

    to make it a wildcard, add "* where the username should appear"

    Re: What to do with Dynamic tags (Outlook Express specifically)

    I'm testing a VB app where the caption changes dynamically depending on what is selected previously.

    However, I can't get around it using a wildcard which I'm sure used to work as AJ points out here.

    Therefore I've changed my Window declaration to:

    window DialogBox CustomerEnquiryDetails
    tag "Customer Enquiry *"
    ...
    ...

    however my test fails because Silk is actually looking for a window named "Customer Enquiry *"

    Anyone got a solution?

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: What to do with Dynamic tags (Outlook Express specifically)

    I have encountered this problem with the *. The solution that worked for me was the following:

    string star
    star = "*"
    tag "Outlook Express - {star}"

    This has worked me in the past. Hope it works for you.
