Hi Dan,

It is not possible to use Silk Test to record itself.

May I ask what are the repetitive steps you are wishing to automate as there may be an alternative method.

Regards,

Chris

1. uncheck base state

2. create a new main with args.

3. add new parameters.

4. copy in code blocks from outside. for executing new base state.

5. create new script reference

6. import a new namesapace

each of these are pretty easy. i know, i just wondered if there was a settung that can be toggled.

I assume you are using Silk Test Workbench, if so, why not simply create a .Net Script that has all these attributes and name it as (something like) template, then all you need to do is to open the script and use File | Save As to save it to a newly named script (or duplicate it from the Asset Browser).
