How can I extend a method in SilkTest?
Find below an example of how you can extend a SilkTest method, in this case, the Click on a PushButton.
In the following example, for every object of type PushButton, you will have the choice to use the original SilkTest defined Click
method (at current speed) or you can use the user-defined method called SlowClick which will add a delay before the Click is
implemented. Essentially, the new SlowClick method will simply call the original Click method with a delay of 1 second beforehand.
[-] winclass PushButton : PushButton [-] SlowClick (INTEGER iButton optional, INTEGER iXpos optional, INTEGER iYpos optional, BOOLEAN bRawEvent optional) [ ] Sleep (1) [ ] derived::Click ()
Testcase one () appstate none App.MyButton.SlowClick () // would be the original plus a delay App.MyButton.Click () // calling the original click
****NOTE - It must be stressed that extending a class is not advised because if a mistake were made in the
syntax of the Method, this will distrupt all other clicks on Pushbuttons****
