Silk Test Classic provides record and playback support for custom controls using dynamic invoke to interact with the custom control during replay. Use this low-effort approach when you want to access properties and methods of the custom control in the test application that Silk Test Classic does not expose. The developer of the custom control can also add methods and properties to the custom control specifically for making the control easier to test.
To test a custom control using dynamic invoke:
This example tests a spinner custom control that includes two buttons and a text box, as shown in the following graphic.
The user can click Down to decrement the value that is displayed in the text box and click Up to increment the value in the text box.
The custom control offers a public CurrentValue property that can be set and retrieved. The value in this example is 3.
WINDOW spinner = Desktop.Find("//FlexBox[@className=customcontrols.Spinner]") spinner.SetProperty("CurrentValue", 4)
