.NET testing with Silk
I am in the process of analysing and working out how effective a tool would Silk Test be in testing a Client-Server .Net based applicatino which had quite a few 3 party controls grids(Janus etc) involved...? I am aware that I shall need the Silk .Net extension kit but am also aware that Silk extension kit do have some issues with these VB based 3rd party GUI controls .... Any feedback from previous experience shall be very very helpful..
thx a ton
Re: .NET testing with Silk
Yes, you need a seperate extension kit for Dotnet support.
not only SilkTest, it is painful to recognizing the custom/third party controls on application.
SilkTest has got very standard solution for such problems
you can map the custom control/objects to standard classes and use the standard methods,functions,methods to work on the custom objects Some cases you can write your extension functions inside the application (which will be called from Silktest).
Ex : Getting the loggedin user name from a desktop application ( returning the variable which is inside the application to silk through your user defined extension function)
same can be done for Dotnet application also if needed ( for this you must take help from your development team to add your code inside the application )
