How do I differentiate between separate buttons on a toolbar when SilkTest only sees the Parent Toolbar object?

How do I differentiate between separate buttons on a toolbar when SilkTest only sees the Parent Toolbar object?

One way to differentiate between these buttons would be to use a system of relative co-ordinates. Co-ordinates are relative to the upper-left corner of the object, not the entire screen. You must create a Toolbar object for each of the buttons that appear on the Main toolbar. These will replace the main object. Instead of;

[-] ToolBar MainToolBar
   [ ] tag "#4"

You will have ;

[-] ToolBar Open
[-] ToolBar Close
[-] ToolBar Search


The next step is to create Tags for each of these objects. The Tag is going to be in the format ;

Column:Number of Columns , Row:Number of Rows

If you have a toolbar made up of 3 buttons in a single row it would look something like;

[-] ToolBar Open
    [ ] tag "#4/(1:3, 1:1)"
[-] ToolBar Close
    [ ] tag "#4/(2:3, 1:1)"
[-] ToolBar Search
    [ ] tag "#4/(3:3, 1:1)"
