Ideas to Improve Ranorex

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

  1. Add support to create physical folders corresponding to simple folders in object repository

    Currently object repository uses Simple folders to structure repo items logically.
    It will help if there are physical folders created corresponding to these simple folders so that they can be moved to source control.

    Our need is to create an OR for multiple apps without creating multiple rxrep and looks like it is not possible with Ranorex as it creates a single OR for all apps, which gets complicated as number of AUT increase

  2. Support object recognition in different Java VMs

    Currently only Oracle and HotSpot (OpenJDK) are supported by Ranorex. It would be nice if other VMs would be supported like Azul or OpenJ9

  3. Preview pane in the steps portion should remember user settings

    The preview pane in the repo section stays where user set it. However, the test steps section keeps resetting to default width.

    (1) Should remember last user defined width setting.

    (2) Should have option to lock test steps and repo sections' preview pane so that they resize width in sync.

  4. Stop remote test running on Ranorex Agent outside of Studio

    It would be beneficial to have a way to stop a test running on a remote ranorex agent without using the Remote panel in Studio.

    This is particularly useful when you are running a test via a CI/CD tool (TeamCity for instance) that runs 1 or more ranorex tests via agents and you have to stop the test via TeamCity for any reason.

    Currently the ranorex agent is ignorant of the test ending, and it tries to continue unimpeded.

    Either a command that can be issued to the agent via the existing command line that will stop all running tests…

  6. Ranorex endpoint server on another computer

    Currently, I need to executing test that perform operation/validation on multiple PCs at the same time. Below is an example:
    - Step 1: Click some button in Application1 on PC1
    - Step 2: Validate some element in Application2 on PC2 (this application is somehow connecting with App1, we need to check the behavior of Step1 on PC2).
    - Step 3: do something in Application 2 on PC2
    - Step 4: validate something in Application1 on PC1
    - Step 5: do something in Application3 on PC3 (also connecting to App1,2)
    - Step 6:...

    First solution I tried is to using Remote…

  7. Modified Date Column on Test Case view (.rxtst)

    There should be a modified date column (optional) for the test case page. This will easily display to the tester or creator when each module was modified, etc. Tester could know exactly where they left off, etc.

    See attached file for a mock-up.

  8. Sorting of attributes weight(Edit path weights)

    Sorting of attributes weight(Edit path weights)
    When user wants to edit Weight of particular attribute then user should be knowing the Weights of attribute in ascending or descending order.

    For that there can be two options provided:
    1. Provide feature of sorting of weight column on Ranorex attributes overview window
    2. Provide export option to software like excel so that user don't have to search manually

  9. Ranorex allows to create a Global test suite by running multiple other test suite in same solution

    However if individual test suites are using their own global parameters then those parameters can be controlled using Global test suite global parameters, so what I am looking for is:
    Test suite A has global parameter URL
    Test Suite B has global parameter URL
    Test Suite C that runs both A and B can pass it's own url that both Test Suites A and B uses

  10. Inline syntax error check

    It would be very helpful if there was a feature/plugin in Ranorex that would allow inline syntax error checking. For example: if I were to omit a semicolon at the end of a statement, Ranorex could notify me
    about the error without having to compile the code. Such as having an error indicator that might say "; expected".

  12. Customizing message in log statements generated using recordings

    It would be helpful if it is possible to modify the 'message' section of log statements generated via recording modules.

    The background for this feature request is to get useful information displayed on the progress window in the screen when a recording is running.

    This problem is present only when recordings are running since the code is auto-generated by Ranorex and is read-only. For user code, users can modify the message in log statements to be anything we want.

    A simple example of a button click action performed would highlight the difference better.

    1. via recording -> ''Mouse Left Click…

  13. Supporting addons for Firefox and Edge please, not only Chrome.

    Why? extension for Chrome only!
    Firefox and Edge have the ability to integrate extensions (plugins, addons)

    I was talking about extensions like SELOCITY (https://www.ranorex.com/selocity/browser-extension/) ...
    This is the kind of tool we have been waiting for for a long time ... We had the disappointment to note that it was not available on Firefox or Edge, because I have a team that works only with Firefox

    Hello Michael,

    thanks for your input. The new Firefox API was not ready when Selocity was released. This has changed now.

    Proving Selocity also for Firefox is something we have on our wishlist since the start of Selocity. Stay tuned!

  14. Able to click on a specific string position spot action from text

    It is common to use specific "string" cliquable in a text. However, SPY does not currently detect these elements.
    If we could click on a specific string in a text it would be a big step forward

  16. Have a run view (panel) for local like remote will be awesome

    Local executions should be as in the remote execution panel.
    The ideal would be to put it in the same panel and to be able to choose the executions according to the selection of the suites and / or the local and / or remote type.
    The report would not be displayed automatically at the end of the run, as for the remote, there would be a clickable link to view the details of the results.
    oh yes what would be great would be to see the progression with a live output section as the console of the local executions,…

  19. Must have video capture

    must have a video capture (remote and mobile) on tests ...
    and have access as screenshots on the report.
    just to say ... it's better than the screenshots for failed test surveys
    can be done simply with cmd and ffmpeg, but should be integrated into the ranorex
