Recording Additional Actions Into an Existing Test

Once a test is created, you can open the test and record additional actions to any point in the test. This allows you to update an existing test with additional actions.

  1. Open an existing test script.
  2. Select the location in the test script into which you want to record additional actions.
    Note: Recorded actions are inserted after the selected location. The application under test (AUT) does not return to the base state. Instead, the AUT opens to the scope in which the preceding actions in the test script were recorded.
  3. Click Actions > Record. Silk Test Workbench minimizes and the Recording window opens.
  4. Record the additional actions that you want to perform against the AUT. During recording the Silk Test Workbench icon on the task bar flashes.For information about the actions available during recording, see Actions Available During Recording.
  5. To stop recording, click Stop in the Recording window. You can also stop recording by pressing the stop recording key combination, which by default is Alt+F10, or by clicking the Silk Test Workbench task bar icon.
