  1. 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.

  2. 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.

    Thank you for input. We are currently in the middle of developing this feature. There will be a hotkey for pausing and resuming the test execution of a test run. We need your help in evaluating and beta testing it, though. If you are interested in helping us by getting early access to this feature and by providing us feedback, please reach out to us using pm@ranorex.com.

  3. 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…

    Thank you for your input.

    We have started working on a data-binding UI overhaul. The sum of changes that we plan will probably come in the next two versions of Ranorex (so not everything will already be in 9.2), and we hope to create a much better user experience when working with external data sources.

    If you are interested in having “early access” to these new changes, please register for our Beta Program. There you can give us valuable feedback for further improvements in this feature: https://www.ranorex.com/beta-program/

  4. enable the video recording via code in Ranorex API

    I would like to enable the video recording via code in Ranorex API.
    This recording feature is really game changer and it is really shame that we cannot use it from Ranorex API. Ranorex API even define enums, but cannot be set Ranorex Documentation
    TestReport.VideoRecordingMode Enumeration
    Namespaces ► Ranorex.Core.Reporting ► TestReport ► TestReport.VideoRecordingMode

    Workaround to use the command line argument within "Program.cs" dose not allowed to use it in .dll.

  5. 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…

    Thank you for the input.

    With Ranorex 9.2, we will release an overhauled data management experience, and your issues should be handled with the changes we have planned for this.

  6. Please add a function to create multiple variables collectively.

    Please add a function to create new variables and to set their values at once.
    This feature will reduce time and efforts to create variables.

    Thank you for the input.

    With Ranorex 9.2 we will release a slightly overhauled Data Binding experience, and auto-generating variables will be among these changes.
