How do I know if I need to increase the number of table elements in a COM Array?
By default SilkPerformer sets the maximum number of table elements to 3:
SETTINGS | ACTIVE PROFILE | RECORD | COM | SCRIPT OPTIONS - MAX NUMBER OF TABLE ELEMENTS
You can tell if you need to increase the number of table elements by looking at the recorded COM.BDF script. Search the script for "\\ComSet" and if you then see the function ComSetString commented out in the script you will need to adjust the number of table elements, for example:
This function should not be commented out during the record process, this means that the replay of the COM script will fail as more elements are required for the Array. To get around this problem you need to increase the number of indexes/elements in the Array, then do a fresh Record against the COM Application.
Using the above example we can see that the vbAppInfo Array has 10 elements therefore we need to increase the number of table elements in the Record settings to 11. The reason why we need to set the number of table elements to 11 is because in an Array the index always starts at 0 and in the above example 10 is the final index, this therefore gives us a total of 11 elements which are required for the Array.
