Adding Information to the Library Browser

  1. Make a backup copy of the default 4test.txt file, which is in the directory where you installed Silk Test Classic, and store your backup copy in a different directory.
  2. In an ASCII text editor, open 4test.txt in your Silk Test Classic installation directory and edit the file. See examples for methods, properties, and functions, if necessary.
  3. Quit Silk Test Classic.
  4. Place your modified 4test.txt file in the Silk Test Classic installation directory.
  5. Restart Silk Test Classic. Silk Test Classic sees that your source file is more recent than 4test.hlp and automatically compiles 4test.txt, creating an updated 4test.hlp. If there are errors, Silk Test Classic opens a window listing them and continues to use the previous 4test.hlp file for the Library Browser. If there were errors, fix them in 4test.txt and restart Silk Test Classic. Your new definitions are displayed in the Library Browser (assuming that the files containing the declarations for your custom classes, methods, properties, and functions are loaded in memory).

There is another approach to updating the Library Browser: maintain information in different source files.

If the Library Browser isn’t displaying your user-defined objects, close the Library Browser, recompile the include files that contain your user-defined objects, then reopen the Library Browser.
