Why does SilkTest not recognise my JIDE objects?
Although JIDE is based on the Java JFCSwing components and has a JFCSwing interface, the JIDE components are effectively a third-party control which SilkTest has no support for. Most of the JIDE controls are recognised as CustomWins although some controls are clearly recognised as standard JFC components. You may get normal SilkTest recognition against these particular parts of the JIDE control but in general, you will need to use low-level commands such as TypeKeys().
