The parent statement specifies the parent window of the window being declared.
Silk Test Classic automatically includes a valid parent statement when you generate window declarations. In some instances, you might want to edit a parent statement. For example, you can add a GUI specifier to indicate that the statement applies only to a particular platform, such as Windows. For more information, see window declaration.
Different GUIs do not always build their internal window hierarchies in the same way, and the parent of a window may change when an application is ported. In particular, a window whose parent is the desktop on one GUI may have a different parent on another GUI.
