Capturing bitmaps
Procedure To compare the actual bitmap generated by the testcase against
the baseline bitmap generated by the bitmap tool or one of SilkTest's built-in
functions, click on the box icon preceding the error message.
As shown in the preceding figure, SilkTest opens the bitmap tool, opens both
baseline (expected, .bmp file) and result (actual, .rmp file) bitmaps, creates a
Differences window and places it in between the baseline and result bitmaps.
To the right, the tool displays a three-paned Zoom window. (The Differences
and the Zoom windows are described in "Zooming in on the differences" on
page 416.)
