Playing Back Scripts

After you record a script, you can play it back at any time. Code lines in a script are typically executed in sequence from top to bottom. During playback, the script drives the test application according to the actions in the script. You can observe these actions taking place on the screen. The actions are performed at the fastest speed allowed by the application's responses. This allows tests to be performed at speeds much greater than manual execution.

Because scripts are recorded on the object level without reference to an object’s position on the screen, playback is also object-oriented. This means that Silk Test Workbench interacts directly with the Windows objects. It does not matter if there have been environmental changes or changes in the test application, scripts still play back properly.
