  2. Create projects in Ranorex/VS that aren't automatically UI automation projects

    My team would like to create multiple projects in a solution. Our testing code doesn't exclusively deal with UI automation, so we'd like to be able to make projects that don't have their references clogged with all of the various Ranorex UI-related dependencies. We actually like using the Ranorex UI to do our element searching rather than writing individual Find methods to build our repo.

    One approach I've been toying with is creating the solution in Ranorex, doing as much UI element repo population as I can before writing any code, and then making new projects in the solution via…

  4. Simple export xpaths in tree structure format to text file

    There should be a simple way to export the xpath as it is displayed in Studio’s bottom third pane so that tester can easily (in a readable way) share with colleagues in another department or development team in another country or whatever/whoever.

    There are situations where you don't have a need to import it back into a project and want to keep xpaths for reference.

    And looking into the files around the repository for a given project, it is very much wrapped in a way where simply finding the repo item and getting xpath is not straightforward and at the…

  5. Hover-over tooltip of element attributes should be customizable

    When you hover over an element while Track is enabled shows a tool-tip of a list of attributes/parameters for that element (i.e., controlname, text, accessiblename, etc.).

    User should be able to display what items display on the tool-tip since certain legacy applications might not have anything static to identify an element except for Instance for example.

    Also, if the user edits the weight rule for an attribute/parameter, those that are set to 200 should automatically appear in the tool-tip as it is clearly something important to the tester.

  6. 1st iteration setup /test case

    I have a set of test cases, some with multiple rows of data/test case. I would like some quick/organized way of adjusting a setting one time prior to running the set of test cases(rows of data). The only option I seem to have right now is to create a smart folder that only runs if I create a variable, set it to 1 for example for the first row and only adjust the setting if the variable is 1. Hopefully this makes sense, especially for those that have run into this before.

  8. Naming the Action

    It would be normal to be able to name (column NAME) the action of the recording to have a clear overview of what the action is for.

  9. Ranorex Tests Results Jira

    Export Ranorex Tests Results to Jira right true in the specific Release.
    Maybe from test manager results like qTest or TestRails or with Jenkins like the App "Ranorex for Bamboo" (https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/1214761/ranorex-for-bamboo?hosting=server&tab=overview)

  13. Integrate Ranorex in the mobile build process

    Currently for mobile recording (SPY mapping) with Ranorex we have to make a package then decompile it, integrate the Ranorex functions and subsequently recompile to finally install and test with lots of pains...
    It would be much more interesting to be able to have the capacity of the recording at any time. This could be done by integrating the Ranorex functions into the package compilation from the IDE or Buildozer (Swift, Android Studio, Visual Studio, Visual Code, Jenkins, etc.) rather than

  14. Auto Multiplex Environment Switch Recording Actions

    Would be super nice to be able to record on multiple browser or mobile devices and auto detecte difference mapping and put it on the same action step with a switch inside. Example:
    Click on submit can be the same in Chrome, Firefox but not in Edge so on recording start option you have to choose which environment you want simultaneously record. So the result of the recorded step action should have a switch behavior for different mapping and runs

  18. German documentation

    It ist (for me) a good assistance, if the documentation in
    "Ranorex User guide", "Ranorex Help Center" and in "RanoreXPath – Tips and Tricks" are not only in English but also in German too. It is for me (in Germany) time consuming every time, if i try to understand the english documentation via english translator.

  19. RootFolder-Links

    We have a complex wpf-program to test. To do so we have been created several repositories. It would be very helpfull to link a root folder from one to another repository.
    E.g. you have a repository "adress" and one called "article". Selecting within arctivel the delivery-adress the adress-dialog will opend within a modal dialog.
    But you can also open the same wpf-view from the ribbon menu.

    Using RootFolder-links you would be able to link all controls downwards the view.

    Specialy in xaml it would be helpfull (look at the custom controls e.g.)

  20. Generate PDF report with only failed or passed testcases information

    Current pdf result report contains information about all passed and failed testcases.
    Can you provide the facility to generate the pdf report with only failed testcases with only failure cause, so it will be more quick to find out failed test scenarios.
