Silk Test Interview Questions: Q. 41 to 50

Set of 10 Questions

Q. 41: What is a test frame?

A test frame is a file that contains information about the application you are testing. Information stored in a test frame will be used as references when SilkTest records and executes testcases.

A test frame is stored in an include file with file extension .inc.

Q. 42: How DOM browser extension identify a Web application UI object?

A Web application UI object is identified in two parts:


the Web browser window where the Web application is running. For example, a Web browser window can be identified as "Browser.BrowserChild("Yahoo Home Page")". Another Web browser window can be identified as "Browser.BrowserChild("Google Home Page")".

Identify the Web UI object based on the HTML element that represents the UI object. For example, an image in a Web page can be identified as "HtmlImage("Yahoo Logo")"; A hyperlink in a Web page can be identified as "HtmlLink("Site Map")";

The full identification of a Web applicatin UI object is the concatenation of the browser window identification and the HTML element identification. For example, the Yahoo logo image is identified as: Browser.BrowserChild("Yahoo Home Page").HtmlImage("Yahoo Logo"). The site map link is identified as: Browser.BrowserChild("Google Home Page").HtmlLink("Site Map").

Q. 43: What is multi-tagging?

Multi-tagging is a technique used by the DOM browser extension to identify a Web page UI object. Whenever possible, DOM extension inserts more than one tag into the object identifier in following format:



"caption_tag" is the caption of the HTML element.

"#index_tag" is the index of this HTML element, counting from the beginning of this page of the same class of HTML elements.

"window_tag" is the window identifier.
