What can I try when SilkTest returns a "Control not responding" error when I try to Select from my JavaScript
dropdown menu?

In a particular case, the following line of code was producing a "Control not responding" error originating in the Select method:

  [ ] window.dropdown.click ()
    [ ] window.dropdown.select ("Reply All")

ANSWER
----------------------------------

Try giving the Click method the specific x,y co-ordinates of the object by using the GetRect method, an example of the coding is shown below:

   [ ] RECT MenuShape
     [ ] window.SetActive ()
     [ ] MenuShape = window.dropdown.GetRect ()
     [ ] window.dropdown.Click (1, MenuShape.xPos, MenuShape.yPos)
     [ ] window.dropdown.Select ("Reply All")
