  1. Reuse Testcases

    Make it possible to use a testcase more than once in a testsuite, just as it is possible to reuse a recording or code module. This would allow more modular use of testcases.

  2. Visual Studio plugin

    Many Ranorex users prefer to use the MS Visual Studio IDE because of it's power and familiarity for .NET coding. It would be nice if Ranorex would make a VS plugin that was capable of presenting the test suites, repos, and modules the same way that Ranorex Studio does. This would allow us to use whichever IDE we are most comfortable with.

  3. API Code Examples

    Having code examples directly in Ranorex API documentation would not only simplify the work of those who like to code but would ultimately reduce rate of unnecessary posts of those on forum who are seeking for appropriate and dynamic solutions.

  4. Remote view of licence server status

    We have a limited number of licenses running via a license server.

    It would be useful if there was a way that we could check the license server status remotely via a webservice api or http server.

    At present I need to remote onto the appropriate box then check the licence info and confirming that licences are free before launching a test run.

    We’re happy to announce an early release of a license statistic tool. Please feel free to download the application and to provide us with feedback (pm@ranorex.com).

    Download: https://download.ranorex.com/s/Yqb8b7DHDMc4Xbo
    Readme: https://download.ranorex.com/s/HCtgeDnbpad4jxa

    Note: The download package has been replaced by a new one as there were some files missing in the old package (2018-03-01 3:30 PM, CET.)

  5. 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.

  6. Please improve the API documentation

    The documentation of the Ranorex API is extremely minimalistic, making it very hard (if not impossible sometimes) to understand and use it. In my opinion, most explanations for classes, attributes and methods are so short that they provide no help at all. Information on how to work with the classes in context is missing. In rare cases you'll find some examples in the forum, but in general you're lost. Please take the trouble to really improve the API documentation. And/or offer some Advanced Training for automation engineers who want to learn the API. Thanks!

  7. 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.

  8. Publish official Ranorex NuGet package

    Please publish the core Ranorex libraries in an official NuGet package in order to allow for easier management of Ranorex integration into projects.

    Currently we are investigating all possible use cases for this idea.
    It would help us a lot if you could comment your project setup and how you are adding Ranorex to it. Thx a lot.

    Best regards

  9. License Manager: Administrator can release a blocked floating license

    Hi all,
    I want to know how I or our administrator can unlock a floating license via the Ranorex License Manager?

    Situation:
    •User A starts Ranorex Studio using one Floating license
    •User A leaves his Computer (while Ranorex Studio is running) and goes home
    •User B wants to start Ranorex Studio using the Floating license which is blocked by User A

    Requirement:
    •certain persons (i.e. Administrator) with access to lic manager can close active connections manually

    Goal:
    •set locked floating license free manually via license manager

    Thanks.
    Niko

  10. Pause/Resume Current Testcase with Hotkey

    Actual there is no way to pause a Testcase , only to Abort the current Testcase or the whole Solution.

    We need this feature , because we use Ranorex as semi automatic Hardware testenviroment and we want to allow the users to pause a test, fix the hardware and then resume the current testcase.

  11. Add a recording module action for calling another recording module including databinding if needed

    Add a recording module action for calling another recording module including databinding if needed.

    For me as Testautomation Engineer it is not that difficult to write some Usercode to do this but for a Tester with no programming language background it is not.

    e.g. : In our application we searching for medicaments, after a successful search we can do several actions with the search result. Therefore this search operation will be used many times and I sepparated this to sepparat recording module that consums the medicament as a parameter. If you do not want to use a user code action…

  12. Currently there is no way to resume test case from its last failed point (of recording module) in Test suite runner.

    Example
    Test suite has 1 Test case and 1 recording module with 15 actions in it. Now it failed at action no 8 and I want to resume running remaining test after fixing issue with my SUT but seems there is no way to do so.

    a. With runtime license, one cannot see the actions in the recording module so one cannot resume the test from action 8.
    b. With floating license, one can see the actions, but it opens up in Ranorex studio and loses all the values of the variables set in Ranorex test suite window (instead uses…

  13. Allow Variables as part of Validate action Match Value regex in Ranorex UI

    Often when validating e.g. confirmation messages e.g. "Username has done something" I have a need to make username a variable read from dataset or parameter. In that case Match Value in validate statement would look like "@varUsername has done something". Unfortunately this is not currently supported by Ranorex making validation of dynamic regex expressions containing variable part not possible unless you do it via User Code action.

  14. Make "Wait for exist" action for Web more robust

    At the moment when I click on web element that causes load of a new or reload of an existing page and I want to validate/make use of web elements on that page I need to make sure that those elements exits in DOM. I do that using "Wait for exist [web element]" action. The problem is that "wait for exist" does not always work reliably in that case returning true when web element is not fully load or accessible yet as part of DOM. To work around that I have to precede "wait for exist" action with "Delay" action…

  15. Improve databinding UI

    The current way of how databinding and data connectors work is great. What is a little bit unhandy is how user sets and changes the binding. Currently you open a parameter and set to which module variable it will be bound (see binding_direction.png). What would be better is the ability to open the binding dialog for given module and set what paramater will be bound to what module variable (see dialog.png).
    It wouldn't change anything inside the binding mechanism. The only thing needed is the enhanced UI. In fact, all the information are stored in the *.rxtst file and if…

  16. It`s not possible to update NuGet client version

    I wanted to add the System.ServiceProcess.ServiceController Package but it`s not possible because for installing this package I need a NuGet client Version > 2.12.
    I tried to update the NuGet Package Manager without any success which means at the moment I`m not able to install the package which is really needed for my further tests.
    My current version is 2.8.XXXXXX.

    It would be great to have always the newest NuGet version or to have an opportunity to update it.

  17. Sorting repository items

    It would be nice to have the option to sort repository items. When adding additional items into the repository the ability to find items becomes more difficult. My naming convention is such that items are labeled to first identify where they are within the applications so when reviewing the repo items I could see if all the objects were captured and without being able to sort the Repo items this is more difficult to accomplish (having the search capability is great)

  18. Conditions enhancement: option to exclude unfulfilled conditional sections from report

    Please consider adding an option to exclude unfulfilled conditional sections from report. For example, in my tests, I'm typically running just one section from let's say 5 or 10, but report still shows all these unfulfilled sections. They not only clutter the report with irrelevant sections (no matter they are grayed out) but they also make the report unnecessary big.

  19. Easier web service testing

    Although you have your blogs how to do web testing with Ranorex in general, it would be awesome if there is more out-of-the-box support which makes it easier to test my web service

  20. IntelliSense as in Visual Studio + Row Autocomplete C# (;) with Shift+Enter

    IntelliSense in Ranorex lags behind comparing to Visual Studio's one. It would be great to have these features working in the same way in Ranorex. There's is also missing option how to complete a row with a simple key shorcut -- Shitft+Enter would be fine...
