This functionality is supported only if you are using the Classic Agent. For additional information, refer to the Silk Test Classic Classic Agent Help.
Use to enable extensions for applications under test.
The Extensions dialog box displays the runtime environments for all extensions that you have installed, or that work with the Classic Agent. The environments listed in the dialog box are used for running the applications that you want to test. The extensions enable Silk Test Classic to recognize the non-standard controls in your environment. If you are using a project, the information you specify in the Extensions dialog box is stored in the partner.ini file. If you are not using a project, the information you specify in the Extensions dialog box is stored in the extend.ini file.
For each application listed in the Application column, the Primary Extension column displays the currently selected primary extension, or Disabled or None, if applicable. To change a primary extension, click in the Primary Extension column, then use the embedded list box to select one of the available options.
Keep in mind that you cannot enable more than one primary extension for an application. Primary extensions are the ones listed in the list boxes of the Extensions dialog box, such as DOM and .NET. Secondary extensions, which are checked with the check boxes in the Extensions dialog box, Java, ActiveX, and Accessibility, are the only ones that can co-exist with another extension. Thus, for example, an embedded browser in a .NET application is not allowed, since both IE DOM and .NET are primary extensions.
Also, remember that not all of the Primary Extensions in the list box can be applied to a new application. Only IE DOM, which has superseded the IE4 OCX extension for embedded browser applications, or .NET extensions make sense for new applications.
The buttons in the Options area are disabled until a corresponding extension is enabled for the currently selected application.
Displays the Extension application dialog box where you can add one or more runtime environments to the Extensions dialog box for testing applications.
Active only when you select a runtime environment in the Application column that you entered manually. You cannot duplicate runtime environments that are installed by default. Click Duplicate to add a new application that has all the same settings, primary and other extensions and other options, as the selected application, but with a different name.
Active only when you select a runtime environment in the Application column that you entered manually. You cannot remove runtime environments that are installed by default. Click Remove to delete a runtime environment from the dialog box.
Active only when you select a runtime environment with an enabled Primary Extension. Click Details to display detailed information about the runtime environment, including version, help text, and executable modules.
