When you execute a keyword-driven test with Silk Test Workbench and the keyword-driven test calls a base state keyword, Silk Test Workbench starts your AUT from the base state.
During the recording of a keyword-driven test, Silk Test Workbench searches in the current project for a base state keyword, which is a keyword for which the IsBaseState property is set to True.
<Keyword( "Start application" , IsBaseState:= True )> Public Sub Start_application() End Sub
To manually mark a keyword, which is implemented as a visual test, as a base state keyword, open the properties of the <<Start>> step of the visual test and set the Is base state property in the Keywords section to Yes.
Application configurations for keyword-driven tests are stored in the current project. To manage the application configuration, select Silk Test Workbench menu. This opens the Select Project dialog box with all of the projects to which you have access. Select the project and click Edit to edit an application configuration.in the
During the execution of a keyword-driven test which includes a base state, the application configurations of the project, in which the keyword-driven test is defined, are used.
