Ideas to Improve Ranorex

Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us at Ranorex Uservoice.

  1. Description recording module

    It would be interesting to be able to put a description for a recording module so that this description is used by default when adding the recorder module in a test suite

  2. support descriptive icons in Object Repository items used in Web Application

    It would be nice to be able to choose an icon that represent the Item in the object repository for a Web Application. Similar to what is currently more or less automatic when the object repository is for a Windows Application.

    I.e. small icon that represent buttons, input fields, radio button, checkboxes, text types (heading, body text, link etc.), dropdown etc.

  3. the forest hill condo

    The forest hill Condos

    416-4197001

    The forest hill Condos will be located at 859 Eglinton Avenue West in Toronto. This modern condominium residence will stand 16 storeys high with 253 mixed sized condo units. The project is currently in registration for pre-construction.

    Demand at Bathurst and Eglinton has remained high for years and with the new Eglinton Crosstown LRT nearing completion, demand is expected to grow exponentially. The forest hill Condos will have the luxury of a new station at its doorstep. Literally, access to the new station is just a 1 minute walk away. With transit growth…

  5. Make Qt Mobile testing available

    It will make Ranorex truly all-round if Qt mobile testing will be available.

  6. Variable warning if bound but not used in the recording

    Hello,

    a smaller idea / improvement. If I have a variable that is bound (no warning anymore) but I forgot to use it in the recording.

    I once had this situation scratching my head and looking why the test was not working, I had the correct binding etc. but the test was doing the wrong things because the variable was not used in that recording
    and instead he was using some other value.

    Best,
    Marcel

  7. "Bound variables:" tool-tip could show more valuable information

    Hello,

    the tool-tip (see screenshot) show more valuable quick info: like if it is bound to a local/gloabal parameter "rowNumber = lpRowNumner {1}" name of the parameter and the value, if bound to a data source "row Number = csv.Row Number" we see the name of the data column or something similar.

    Best,
    Marcel

    Thank you for your input.

    With Ranorex 9.2 we will release the data binding pad. This new view will show a lot more information about the data binding, so your problem could already be solved with Ranorex 9.2. Please keep us updated.

  8. Add a way to disable the check for data files that have been updated externally

    Each file is being "touched" externally during each build, I assume by our Antivirus software, causing every single data file to prompt to reload.
    Since corporate IT has locked down the settings so there is no way to exclude our Ranorex directory it would be nice to have a setting that would stop the Studio from checking if the files have been updated.
    Similar to the option that allows you to disable the check for non-data files being updated externally.

  9. Could .NET Framework be updated from 4.7.2 to 4.8 in RanorexStudio?

    I'm using Visual Studio .NET Framework 4.8 and need to integrate with the RanorexStudio using .NET Framework but 4.8 version isn't available in Ranorex yet.

    How to download and install the .NET Framework 4.8 in Ranorex Studio?

  10. Open PDF in Ranorex

    I was tryin to test my app, where i receive a PDF-file with E-Mail. the Idee was to login in RxBrowser and Open PDF to check if everything is OK. This is not supported in RxBrowser. it will be very nice, when i don't need any other tools as Appium to do this. So i can do that in One flow.

    Thank you for your input.

    Currently, we don’t have any updates planned to the RxBrowser, because we see the shift of interest towards using WebDriver endpoints also on mobile devices. I can’t tell if this direction (also within Ranorex) will change, but currently the RxBrowser doesn’t get any more support than possible Bugfixes.

  11. Report - add seperator

    When some tests becomes to grow, it would be nice to have the possibility to insert into the report a seperator (e.g. line with a title) in order to make the report more readable (e.g. Initialization phase, or change settings, etc).

  12. Increased application support for code analysis tools, ideally with source code rather than compiled.

    Currently Ranorex only seems to support FxCop for code analysis, which only does the analysis on "compiled object code, not the original source code." Having more than just one option would be nice.

    Ideally being able to use the same tool as the local development team is preferred, which more options would increase the chances of that.

    Example: ReSharper

  13. Clone more than one data source at once

    When in "Manage Data Sources" there is a "Clone" button right on top of the popup. This button gets enabled when there is exactly one data source selected in the list box below. It would be quite useful if we could select more that one data source at once and click on "Clone" so that multiple data sources are cloned instead of clicking on each data source and then on "Clone" separately.
    This already works with the "Delete" button, so please extend functionality of this popup to make this work.

    Thank you for your input.

    You are correct, this functionality would be handy in some cases and it doesn’t seem logical why it shouldn’t work.

    However, this is an edge case that probably not many users face. We might consider it in our data management update if it proves to be an easy fix.

  14. Add port configuration to Ranorex Licenser Service

    I need the Ranorex Licenser Service to run on a different port than the default 7266. While it is possible to manually go to the Windows Services, stop the service, display properties for it, type in new port in the Start Parameters field and hit Start... this is often missed after rebooting the Server which runs this service. This causes automated runs to fail until it gets fixed... manually.

    It would be great if a port value could be set in the configuration for the service. It would be really helpful.

    Thank you for your input.

    We have a work package in our backlog that will update the license manager tool. We haven’t decided when we will implement it yet, but I put this requirement to the list for this update.

  15. Find Remote Agents Smartly!!

    The job assignment should wait for the first free agent instead of assigning right away. This would make the queue behave exactly like parallel execution.

    This system has a disadvantage. It assigns in the moment when you execute the command in CMD. At that point, the test has no information about how long the queue on the agents is time wise. It only knows the number of jobs that each agent has. Because, some jobs can be much longer than others, this system cannot prevent the longest running queue to actually get even longer. This can happen because by chance,…

    Thank you for your input.

    We see the possible use cases for this, however, this would require a “central” agent that distributes the tests to the Ranorex Agents. This central agent could be Ranorex Studio, but this would require you to have Ranorex Studio up and running all the time. Even worse, you can’t just turn off the PC while the tests are not correctly distributed to the Agents yet (for example for over-night tests).

    Thus, for a small use case (many, larger test runs on several agents with vastly different run times), it would be necessary to implement a new application that sits between the caller (like Ranorex Studio) and the Ranorex Agents that handles the test distribution.

  17. Setting for turning off directory from the xcopy deployment

    We would like to have a setting for turning off the directory "Runtime\x64\VCRedist" from the xcopy deployment independently from the platform to avoid an issue with starting Autodesk Vault applications.

  19. Mercurial Integration

    You have integration with other source controls, and have numerous requests to have Mercurial integration. However, you still have not added this to your short list of version control systems. We would love to have support for this so we can leverage the Ranorex Magic Merger tool.

    Please consider???

  20. Add a direct ClearText method to the Input tag in the Ranorex API

    Add a direct clear text method to all the Input tag elements. This actually helps us to clear the input fields without hassle.
