How to disable Time Warping JavaScript timers in Silk Test

How to disable Time Warping JavaScript timers in Silk Test

Time warping JavaScript timers is part of the Silk Test AJAX synchronization. This causes JavaScript timers to trigger in shorter intervals. If the web application uses the JavaScript functions 'SetTimeout' or 'SetInterval' to trigger requests then you might see HTTP Requests sent in shorter time intervals.

To disable the feature known as ‘Time Warping’ for AJAX synchronization you can use the following SetOption() method within the below Silk Test Interfaces:-



Workbench (Vb.Net) 


* It is not possible to set this option this when using a Visual Test.


By setting the parameter to ‘0’, this disables the functionality. Alternatively setting it to ‘1’ will enable the option.

The advantage of using the OPT_XBROWSER_TIME_WARP_MODE instead of setting the Synchronization mode to HTML is that AJAX synchronization remains in use.
