  1. Search with Multiple Keywords in Group Module Browser.

    We are working on a project with large number of Group Modules (200+) and this number keeps on increasing. So, it is a hectic job to search group modules with single keyword as the search will result in large number of group modules with the same keyword in its name. Searching group modules with multiple keywords like "keyword1" and "keyword2" will make searching of Group Modules very easy.

    • Upgrade Ranorex Studio to Support C# 7/.NET Standard/.NET Core

      Currently Ranorex only supports up to C# 5.0 (per feedback from support) and does not seem to be able to install an NuGet packages that use .NET Standard or .NET Core. Using VIsual Studio 2017 or ReSharper for code editing usually causes issues as they use newer C# language features.

      • Add possibility to change duration for ApplicationNotRespondingException by code

        It is possible to change this on a PC in RanorexConfig8.xml.

        There is 2 problems:
        1) It is not in the project
        2) It is not possible to change it during a test (I need this for my application)

        • Upgrade solutions in one go

          it would be nice to have a better way to upgrade solutions with new Ranorex versions than opening them one by one for upgrade.

            Unfortunately we had to postpone it due to shifted priorities. At the moment we can’t announce a release version/date for this idea.
            We will keep you updated.

          • Have a decent User Guide for Studio & API

            Instead of the bundle of outdated Forum advice (dating back to 4 years and 3 major version ago(!)), outdated Blog posts ("Best practices" referring to 2 versions ago (!)) and minimalistic online User Guide, let's have

            -> an offline,
            -> complete (EVERY dropdown-menu-item),
            -> version-aware (let's not read text to get informed at the end that the new version does this differntly),
            -> searchable (not have the info on "cool Studio feature" be hidden under "clstdftr" in the API description),
            -> possibly even Tool-Tippy,

            • Allow loops for smart folders by counter or by time period

              It would be great if repeat counter will be a configurable property of the smart folder. One more option should be a period of time the smart folder will be repeated within.
              Now when I need to repeat some part of my test I need to add Data Connector with a multiple number of rows or to implement loop in code.

              • Find unused columns in data sources

                We have quite a lot of data sources with even more columns/fields. All of which were useful at some point in time.

                As our solution grows, we tend to loose track of used and unused columns in these data sources. Really liking the idea of repository cleanup it would be great to have a similar functionality to find unused columns in our data sources.

                The functionality doesn't even have to do the cleanup itself. It should be sufficient to just show the respective columns so we can do the cleanup ourself.

                • Allow Iteration property for a test to be set from the Test Suite Runner

                  Allow Iteration property for a test to be set from the Test Suite Runner. Currently this is settable within Ranorex Studio, but not from the Test Suite Runner.

                  • 64-bit debugger support

                    In order to create large PDF Reports, we need 64-bit memory allowance. However if I change this for my nodes to run on 64-bit my team cant debug anymore, as the CSPROJ is controlling both the target and the testclasses the scripts will add (so they cant ignore it).

                    To get around this, having 64-bit debugging support would be great.

                      In different hierarchies of a test suite, allow users to create TestCases(or SmartFolders) with the same name.

                      • Merge Ranorex reports together into one report.

                        It would be nice to be able to merge 2 or more reports together into one. For example if you run two individual Test Suits on seperate virtual machines and then export the report into a folder then it would merge those together to form a single report.

                        • Folder name - leading numbers (projects view)

                          All,

                          It would be nice if we can put leading numbers in the foldername in the projects view.

                          Example:
                          -- Projectname
                          - 1_Foldername
                          - 2_Foldername

                          Kind regards,

                          • Call up Excel file directly from Ranorex

                            We have lots of big data pools. Therefore, we use Excel sheets and Excel Connectors in Ranorex. This gives us the possibility to use Find/Replace and other Excel specific features.

                            Now, if we want to correct a value in the data pool, we have to check with "Manage Datasources" where the file is located on the file system (and first of all, we need to find the correct Connector). This takes sometimes very long and it is very frustrating, if you edit accidentally the wrong data pool. Sometimes they look very similar.

                            Therefore I would like to have a button…

                            • API Documentation for Errorbehaviour

                              ErrorBehaviour feature is available but no documentation on that. So, it is very difficult to implement already existing feature. It would be great if you add a small documentation or example on that.

If an app cannot be instrumented then it can still be tested through the OS, but the CloseApplication action doesn't work on OS apps.

                                  • Debugging port as parameter for CEF panels

                                    When having an application with CEF panels, ranorex will try and find a debugging port on its own. When having multiple CEF panels and the application also has a debugging port it is impossible for ranorex to find the objects of a specific CEF panel because ranorex takes the first best debugging port it can find.

                                    What could be useful is adding a parameter so we can fill in a debugging port of our choosing. maybe at step level (as parameter) or in the repository item metadata so the objects are closely coupled with the CEF panel (and debugging port)

                                    • pause

                                      I would need a function, which makes a planned pause during the test run (means, the test run waits for a user input via hotkey or simple GUI) and then continues.
                                      This is not supposed to be related with working / not working test case, but a planned break.

                                        Hi,
                                        We are working with Jazz IBM for managing our task, product requirements, and quality management.
                                        We would like to have the possibility that when test case finish executed, the result will be updated in Jazz.
                                        Thanks

                                        • Expected image and Searched image use diff image type

                                          When checking ranorex report, I found the Expected Image and Searched Image use different file type, Expected image is jpg, and Searched Image is png. it will cause false alarm when doing the comparison.

                                          if possible could we use same image type for expected and searched image? it is a good choice to use png since png quality is better than jpg.
