  1. PDF failed execution yields rethrow exeception on report

    When a user is implementing the PDF automation helper and there is a failure, it throws a red warning on the report stating "rethrow exception" at the bottom of the report. This is not a user friendly message and is not suitable for audiences (such as directors or VPs).

    • Reference linked file of other projects as datasource

      I linked an Excel file from one project to another. Now I'd like to be able to take the file and create a datasource but it is not possible.

      I already tried setting a relative path to access the file in the dialog. This works for ranorex builds but when I build it manually (msbuild.exe) the generated path in the rxtst is wrong.

      • Center Items as far as possible

        Sometimes you want Elements/Items (Webelements) as far in the center as possible. For Example if the EnsureVisible() is not working for a test as intended (Element/Item is "Visible" but the taskbar of a Browser is in front of it - a click on the item would not work because it would click on the taskbar). But I could imagine it would make Image Compares for some cases more reliabel. Suggestion: Invoke Action Center Items: Centers the item to the center (Scrolling the BrowserSite Up/Down Left/Right till to the point where the item is as close to the center as possible.

          • screenshot in path editor

            Hi,

            • Note unbound values and bound (but at different level) values

              Studio Feature: Currently there are notes (and warnings) if some variable is not bound to a value -

              What i miss is having a note (not necessarily a warning) when values are not bound to a variable (e.g. because that SmartFolder was copied, and then some recordings were deleted, thereby no longer sourcing from those values).

              (Additionally,) A feature to "see through" the different levels of SmartFolders and TestCases would be great, to see what/if a given value sources to in other levels. If this was implemented, it would automatically solve the above Feature Request, because if all levels are…

              • Option to lock tab order for projects and recording modules in main work area

                Would very much like to keep the Project/Recording Modules tabs in order from left to right as I open them in my project (for example, I always keep the Project.rxtst in the left-most position and recording modules I open/work on to the right of that). Currently if I open a recording module it will occasionally spawn in the left-most position and move everything to the right (sometimes it spawns in the right-most position). If we could please have the option to 'lock' the tab order so that new tabs only spawn to the right of existing ones, I think that…

                • Move Elements from Repository to Action Table with screenshots

                  Wenn recording an element, ranorex produces 2 screenshots for this element. On the one hand a screenshot in action table und on the other hand the same pichture (screenshot) for the same element in the repository. So far so good.
                  If i want to move the same element from the repository to the action table, the pictures / screenshots from the same element are lost.
                  The screenshot in Repository is maintain / conserved.

                  • Switch execution between endpoint to Local

                    It would be helpful to switch execution from end point to local for multiple end point execution rather than switching between two end points.

                    • 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.

                      • It is impossible to change report level for compatible jUnit report

                        It should be possible to change report level for compatible jUnit report, because sometimes this file is too large, e.g. in my case it is about 500 MB.

                        • Add GUI Automation Helper

                          I would need a simple GUI at the very beginning of my test run to ask for some global parameters that need to be entered manually. Would be great if an easy-to-handle Automation Helper would be added to solve this.

                          • Export of variables and parameters

                            I would need a function that - after finishing the test - exports all variables or parameters in a simple csv or excel file. Maybe it would also be possible to "check" the values (so that I can decide whether I need the parameter or not).
