QUESTION
----------------------------------

What should I do if my testscript halts during playback and will only continue if I manually press a keyboard button?

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

Once you have determined at what point or line in your testscript that the halt is occurring, try placing the Agent.FlushEvents () statement at this point. Then re-run your testscript.

Agent.FlushEvents ( )


The FlushEvents () statement causes queued keyboard and mouse events to be sent as they are generated.

By default, SilkTest sends events when all keys or mouse buttons that were pressed have been released. Calling FlushEvents is the way to override this optimization, because FlushEvents sends each event as it is generated.

For more details on this method please refer to SilkTest online help for FlushEvents method.
