Is it possible to run a SilkTest script in background mode?
Running a script in background mode would involve executing the script without restoring or maximizing the application under test. Certain elements of testing can be done in this way, such as writing and/or retrieving information from files.
However, any test, which requires interaction with the GUI of the application under test, cannot be run in background mode. SilkTest interacts with the application under test using keyboard manipulation and the mouse, as well as visual recognition techniques. Without the GUI, SilkTest will not be able to execute these functional commands.
