How to perform a double click on an image in Silk Test Classic

How to perform a double click on an image in Silk Test Classic

Currently in Silk Test Classic, you can only use basic data types when using Dynamic Invoke. With Silk4Net and Silk4J you can use more complex data types as they provide full Image Recognition support whereas Classic does not.

In Classic, only a subset of the Image Recognition methods are exposed and can be called.

If you wish to perform a double click using Image Recognition, you can use the below workaround. This will perform a single click against your saved image which will move the cursor on screen to that position.

Then using GetPosition() against the Cursor class, we can then use the x and y integer values in the DoubleClick() function.

The below example is tested against a sample on the W3Schools website.

[-] testcase ImageDoubleClick()
     [ ]
     [ ] String image = "D:\doubleclick.png"
     [ ]
     [-] if (WebBrowser.BrowserWindow.DynamicInvoke("ImageExistsFile", {image}))
          [ ]
          [ ] WebBrowser.BrowserWindow.DynamicInvoke("ImageClickFile", {image})
          [ ]
          [ ] POINT pCursor
          [ ] pCursor = Cursor.GetPosition()
          [ ]
          [ ] WebBrowser.DoubleClick(MB_LEFT, pCursor.x, pCursor.y)
