Enable UI Automation support and specify which attributes and values to exclude from locators to allow Silk Test Workbench to better identify objects in applications that have implemented UI Automation provider interfaces, for example applications that are based on JavaFX or QT.
Silk Test Workbench includes a sophisticated locator generator mechanism that guarantees locators are unique at the time of recording and are easy to maintain. Depending on your application and the frameworks that you use, you might want to modify the default settings to achieve the best results. You can use any property that is available in the respective technology as a custom attribute given that they are either numbers (integers, doubles), strings, item identifiers, or enumeration values.
You can also retrieve arbitrary properties from applications that have implemented UI Automation provider interfaces and then use those properties as custom attributes. To achieve optimal results, add a custom automation ID to the elements that you want to interact with in your test.
