Recording a Keyword in Silk Test Classic

You can only record actions for a keyword that already exists in a keyword-driven test, not for a keyword that is completely new. To record a new keyword-driven test, see Recording a Keyword-Driven Test.

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

To record the actions for a new keyword:
  1. Open a keyword-driven test that includes the keyword that you want to record.
  2. In the Keyword-Driven Test Editor, click Implement Keyword to the left of the keyword that you want to implement. The Start Recording dialog box opens.
  3. Click Yes.
    The Recording window opens and Silk Test Classic starts recording the actions for the keyword.
  4. In the application under test, perform the actions that you want to test.
    For information about the actions available during recording, see Actions Available During Recording.
  5. Click Stop. The Record Actions on Open Agent dialog box opens.
  6. Click Paste to Editor. The Update Files dialog box opens.
  7. Click Paste script and update window declaration(s).
  8. Click OK. The Record Actions on Open Agent dialog box opens.
  9. Click Close.

The recorded actions are displayed in the defined 4Test script.
