I cannot keep the menu dialog open when I run my testcases. I am able to open word 2007 without any trouble. I use ALT-f to open the main menu dialog. But as soon as NGDWord.DialogBox("#1").SetActive () is called the dialog closes and the steps after that fail. Of course the whole testcase fails as well. Does anybody know a way to force it to stay open? The menu item I need doesn't have a hot key so i have to use co-ordinates.
Alt-f works. The trouble is the menu disappears. When done manually the menu remains open so that hot keys or ALT keys work. But if the menu has closed the keys will not work since the focus has been lost. Seems to happen when SetActive (), in the Silk script, is called.
We have something known as accessibility(separate Menuitem in the Record Menu)in SilkTest 2006 R2 by doing which you can access the menu items in word,excel etc. This does with the required extensions for such applications.
Try going through the help file. It should definitely help.
