Does SilkPerformer support line breaks?

Does SilkPerformer support line breaks?

No, SilkPerformer does not make use of line breaks. Other applications use line breaks to control the flow of a test or to help with debugging scripts, SilkPerformer also has this functionality through the use the HALT function, or to examine variables at various points in the script you can manually script output using the PRINT statement or the WRITELN statements

The HALT statement will stop the Virtual User simulation completely but if you want more flexible control then you should look at the RETURN statement functions. This function will give you more flexibility and will allow you to stop a transaction but continue on with the rest of the test.
For more details on using these functions please see the online help.

Also, using the Windows MessageBoxA functionality provided by the Windows User API Client dll - user32.dll, it is possible to pause Try-Script execution for debug purposes? For more information please see the following resolution:-How can I pause Try-Script execution for debug purposes?
