Use the Record Output: Visual Test options to control behavior while recording controls and screens in visual tests. For more information about using these options, see Limiting Database Growth.
You can set the following output options:
Determines how Silk Test Workbench captures test application screens during recording.
Set to Application to capture the test application and any windows within the test application.
Set to Active Window to capture only the test application's active window during recording.
Set to Desktop to capture screens of all applications, including the test application, that are visible in the desktop during recording.
Set to None to capture no screens during recording.
Set to Yes to capture individual screens that display in Screen Preview. This enables you to view the actions that occur on individual screens in Screen Preview in conjunction with individual test steps in the Test Steps pane. Additionally, you can compare the screens that are recorded during playback against the screens captured when the visual test was first recorded if test step screens are captured during playback also.
Set to No to capture no individual test steps during recording. If the Screen capture setting is set to anything other than None, a screen is captured for the main context of the group of actions that occur on a dialog box or Web page. As a result, each individual test step is associated with a group screen in Screen Preview.
Set to Yes to capture controls and their properties during recording. The controls can then be selected using Screen Preview without requiring access to the test application. To improve playback performance, set this option to No.
