Support for Pop-Up Windows

Silk Performer browser-driven testing supports sites that utilize pop-up windows (for example, login dialog boxes). Pop-up browser windows often include input fields in which users enter values that are passed back to the main page (for example, username and password strings). Multiple browser-window support is available by default when you create a Silk Performer project of type Web browser-driven (AJAX).

A new tab is created in the Browser Application each time a pop-up window is generated during application recording. Each pop-up window that is encountered results in a tab being created in the Browser Application. Each time you click a tab in the Browser Application during recording a BrowserActivateWindow function is scripted automatically.

Note: The manual opening of windows and tabs during recording (via menu bars, context menus, or keyboard shortcuts) is not supported.
