You can create image verifications in one of the following ways:
- By using the
- During recording.
- By inserting a new image verification into an existing visual test.
To create a new image verification in the
Asset Browser, perform the following steps:
Asset Types list, right-click
Image Verification and select
New Image Verification.
The image verification UI opens.
Identify to identify the image that you want to verify in the application under test.
Name text field, type a meaningful name for the new image verification.
Note: If you have selected to use an existing image, the name of the image verification is by default the name of the existing image.
Optional: If you want to recapture the same image from the application under test, because there is a change in comparison to the image
that you had initially captured, click
If you are testing a Web application, you can select the browser on which you want to capture the image from the
Select Application window.
Optional: You can click
Verify to test if the image verification works.
Silk Test Workbench searches for the image in the UI of the AUT, top-down and left to right, and highlights the first matching image.
Optional: You can add an exclusion area to the image verification, which will not be considered when
Silk Test Workbench compares the image verification to the UI of the application under test (AUT).
Optional: You can set the option
Client Area Only to define that only the part of the image that is actually part of the AUT is considered when
Silk Test Workbench compares the image verification to the UI of the AUT.
The accuracy level defines how much the image to be verified is allowed to be different to the image in the application under
Silk Test Workbench declares the images as different. This is helpful if you are testing multiple systems or browsers with different screen resolutions.
We recommend to choose a high level of accuracy in order to prevent false positives. You can change the default accuracy level
in the options.
Note: When you set the
Accuracy Level to less than five, the actual colors of the images are no longer considered for the comparison. Only the grayscale representations
of the images are compared.
Save to save the new image verification into the
Silk Test Workbench repository, or click
Save and close to additionally close the image verification UI.
The new image verification is listed in the
Asset Browser, and you can use it to check if the image exists in the UI of your application under test.
