Enabling Extensions for
Applications Under Test
Introduction
SilkTest provides extensions that you can install for testing applications that
use non-standard controls in specific development and browser environments.
If you plan to test applications in environments that require extensions, you
might need to enable the appropriate extensions for each application before
you begin testing.
This chapter presents an overview of why and when to enable extensions. To
learn the procedures for enabling or disabling a specific extension, please
refer to the online Help for that extension.
