  1. 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.

        • Mobile key press {Overview}

          Add 'Recent Apps'/'Overview' option to the Android mobile key press action to allow a test to fully close an app rather than 'minimise' it through the {Home} option. 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.

          • 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.

            • Use variable with Smart Folder

              When we use iterations in our test suite, the basic view of the final report is difficult to understand, because we always see the same iterated smart folder name (see image1), with no data context.

              It would be interesting to be able to link the smart folder to a variable, which would allow to quickly see in the report what is the data context for each iteration (see example image 2).

              • Allow different repositories to use different WPF plugins within the same project

                Currently the plugin settings are global to the whole solution. It would be handy to be able to change the plugin settings on a repository basis. This can help with difficult applications that combine WPF and UIA accessible elements or makes migrating to a newer plugin easier e.g. WPFOnly/WPFPreferred to WFPImproved. Also having 'Show all elements' to be set per repository would be useful for similar reasons.

                • 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.

                    If I want to run an API/Service layer test, it would be great to be able to record these calls.

                    • Modules based on Configuration

                      I have a website and a mobile App. To get to the user configuration section in the website, I click on the user, then configuration. To get to the user configuration section in the web app, I first click on a menu, then the user, then configuration.

                      I would like to have all of my business logic within one test, and call that same test from either web or on the phone.

                      The way to do this would be to be able to have 2 separate modules, one called UserConfigWeb and the other called UserConfigAndroid, etc.

                      Then I would like…

                      • Provide ability to import selenium code into Ranorex Studio

                        we have another application which generates selenium code which can be exported and saved. We would like the ability to import selenium code into ranorex studio to be added to our test suite.

                        • 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.

                          • Set preferred TestSuite in Project (from Ranorex 8.2)

                            It would be nice to have an option to set a preferred test suite.
                            Normally it took the testsuite from the startup project. But now you can have multiple test suites in one project.

                            - Project
                            -- ProjectTestSuite
                            -- NewProjectTestSuite (Set this one as prefered test suite)

                            This would be an added value for the testsuite icon button in the top menu bar.

                            • Allow run configurations to be copied.

                              Allow run configurations to be copied. Frequently I want to rerun a subset of an existing test configuration (for instance, rerunning failed tests). It would be helpful to just copy the original run configuration and edit it.

                                • Use Repository Items as variables

                                  In my current project there are a lot of recordings which do the same thing:

                                  1. Validate that an item exist
                                  2. Click on the center of said item

                                  If it were possible to pass Repository Items to Recordings, I could probably cut amount of existing recordings in half by reusing the only one recording with the required item as a variable.

                                  • Include Spy in the Agent

                                    Running the testsuite on a remote machine may fail due to an invalid RxPath. To verify the RxPath on the remote machine it would be really helpful to use Ranorex Spy without having to install the complete Ranorex Studio.

                                    Including Spy as an option to the Agent installation would do. Spy should only require the Ranorex Agent licence to run.

                                      • Support Windows restart

                                        It would be great if Ranorex could support a Windows restart (Windows is restarted by Ranorex and the current test suite is continued).
                                        Similar options are already known by TeamViewer, where a remote Windows restart is supported and the remote session continues, so I guess this would also work locally.
