Object Orieneted Window Declaraions ...
      #276402 - 05/02/01 12:23 AM

I have a window declared in file. I want to associate methods to this window, but I want to declare it in a different file like C++ way. Did any one tried this.


Sorry, we are using SILK Test

and I had refered to Page 306 as you mentioned and I can only extend a pre-defined library class like TextField I cannot extend a window definition for eg:

[-] window DialogBox QueryBuilder // Query Builder Dialog
[ ] tag "Query Builder*"
[ ] //Functions
[ ]
[-] AcceptValues()

Now I want to add another function and in a new file, I tried:

use ""
[-] winclass QueryBuilder : QueryBuilder
[-] myFunc()
[ ] print("My Name")

and save it as and compiled it and I am getting errors. Any help is really appreciated.

What automation tool are you using? If it is SilkTest, then you can do this (not sure about the other automation tools).

Rather than me going into detail here, check out page 306 of your SilkTest book. If you still need help, then we can get into that more here.

If the functions are specific to QueryBuilder window you would just place the functions under QueryBuilder. To reference these function you would use the syntax QueryBuilder.MyFunction()

To create them specific to any DialogBox you would use:


[-] winclass DialogBox : DialogBox
[ ]
[-] MyFunction()
[ ]

Try create a new window class:


[-] winclass MyQueryBuilder : DialogBox
[ ] setting DontInheritClassTag = TRUE
[ ]
[-] MyFunction()
[ ]

You should be deriving from an existing class to inherit all of its functions plus the entended ones you want to add into it.

To use this extended class you would need to change the Class type from DialogBox to MyQueryBuilder. Yo could have actually named the winclass and window Identifier the same.
But why make life confusing.


[-] window DialogBox QueryBuilder
[ ] tag "Query Builder"

[-] window MyQueryBuilder QueryBuilder
[ ] tag "Query Builder"

Hope this helps.
