'Use URL from running browser' gone?

We just upgraded SilkTest Workbench from 17.5 to 19.5. It appears there is no longer an option to choose for 'Use URL from running browser'. Now we are required to paste the URL into a selection box each time we record?  NOTE: User here; not a programmer.

Re: 'Use URL from running browser' gone?

Hi Denise,

The 'Use url from running Browser' option was only ever available if Internet Explorer was selected in the 'Select Application Configuration' dialog; and this browser was already running. If you select Chrome or Firefox this option was always disabled, even if Chrome or Firefox are already running(without automation support).

This was the case with SilkTest Workbench 17.5 as well as the latest version, so there havn't been any changes to this functionality between these versions.

Regards...

Yes, we always selected Internet Explorer, and had our application under test active in the background.

Re: 'Use URL from running browser' gone?

Hi Denise,

You are right that there is no 'Use URL from running Browser' setting in Workbench 19.5 but is the url not available for selection when you expand the dropdown list for the 'Navigate to URL' field. i.e.

Aha! Now I see that that the URL for my running application is available to choose from in the drop down. Thank you for pointing that out!
