Custom Controls Dialog Box

This functionality is supported only if you are using the Open Agent.

Options > Manage Custom Controls.

Silk Test Classic supports managing custom controls over the UI for the following technology domains:
  • Win32
  • Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF)
  • Windows Forms
  • Java AWT/Swing
  • Java SWT

In the Frame file for custom class declarations, define the frame file into which the new custom classes should be generated.

When you map a custom control class to a standard Silk Test class, you can use the functionality supported for the standard Silk Test class in your test. The following Custom Controls options are available:
Silk Test base class
Select an existing base class to use that your class will derive from. This class should be the closest match to your type of custom control.
Silk Test class
Enter the name to use to refer to the class. This is what will be seen in locators.
Custom control class name
Enter the fully qualified class name of the class that is being mapped. You can use the wildcards ? and * in the class name.
Use class declaration
This option is available only for Win32 applications. By default False, which means the name of the custom control class is mapped to the name of the standard Silk Test class. Set this setting to True to additionally use the class declaration of the custom control class.
Note: After you add a valid class, it will become available in the Silk Test base class list. You can then reuse it as a base class.

Example: Setting the options for the UltraGrid Infragistics control

To support the UltraGrid Infragistics control, use the following values:
Option Value
Silk Test base class Control
Silk Test class UltraGrid
Custom control class name Infragistics.Win.UltraWinGrid.UltraGrid
