How can I get SilkTest to work with HtmlTables that do not have any column headers?

If you use the GetRowText() method on HtmlTables that do not have column headers then you will not be able to return any information from the first row of the table.

To get round this you need to use the GetChildren() method on the HtmlColumn. The Column has no name so you will need to use the index as in the following code example.

The GetChildren() method returns more detailed information about the objects in the table This is especially useful when you need to get information on images contained within the table.

[] testcase GetItems() appstate none
  [] list of string lsItems
  [] BrowserPage,SetActive()
  [] lsItems = BrowserPage.HtmlTable("#1").HtmlColumn("#2").GetChildren()
  [] ListPrint(lsItems)

This will return the items from the second column in the first HtmlTable.
