  1. Inflexible implementation of SmartFolders.

    1. One cannot put a Testcase in a Testcase anymore, but in my opinion it is an common case to do so. For example if testcase B is a subset of testcase A.
    2. One cannot build a treepath only containing SmartFolders. In this Case you cannot put a Module in. So there have to be a testcase in this treepath.

    Because the only difference between testcases and smartfolders is that smartfolders are not included in evaluation (pie chart) in the report. Better and more flexible implementation would be to have a flag like "include in report evaluation" on testcases.…

    • Ability to create folder when you want to move an action to a new Recording Modules

      The ability to create a new folder to select as a Module destination when you use the Move to New Recording function would be highly convenient.

      • OpenBrowser arguments based of used browser

        Hi,

        I would like to see an option to instruct OpenBrowser action to use browsers'-bound arguments. Currently, OpenBrowser allows only one set of arguments, which is not enough in case the test is run in multiple browsers. You see, Chrome arguments are not compatible with IE or FF and vice versa. The only workaround is to use a code module with condition and browser name variable bound to that user code. But I think it would be much nicer to have such option directly in recording module. Thanks.

        • Recognize Telerik-Elemente, specially Tooltips

          At the Moment it is not possible to recognize tooltips from Telerik-Objects. After Evaluation with the hotkey "T" for Tooltip-Elements the property tooltip from one object do´nt contain the value for the tooltip, i. e. there ist no value for Evaluation. It is empty. Therefore it is not possible to evaluate tooltips from Telerik-Objects.

          • Task Scheduler to use Arguments from Data as trigger

            I am running the Ranorex solution through Task Scheduler and would like to put the argument that only those iterations should be executed with the name of Scottsdale.

            Is there any option in Add Arguments- to do so. Image attached for reference.

            Note: I was told that I can use the IF Condition but in that case, I have to open the solution every time to change the value.

            I am looking for something that I can add as an Argument and then run it automatically for other argument by duplicating the Task in Task Scheduler.

            Please assist.

            • Allow UI access to the overloaded methods and return values in the validate class

              Only a small portion of the overloaded methods are accessible through the user interface. As I reviewed other suggestions before creating this post, I found that many of these requests could be met by making the overloads available through the UI much what was done with the OpenBrowser method.

              In my case I'm most interested in the ExceptionOnFail boolean. Further, I'd like to be able to access the return value through the UI so I can bind it to a parameter which will drive SmartFolder conditional execution.

              For example doing an Exist validation on an object will return a true/false…

              • Please add an option/axis to identify element(s) without children elements

                In certain cases, it would be useful to have an option to identify an element, which contains NO children elements.

                Please try the below HTML sample here:
                https://www.w3schools.com/tags/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml_div_test

                <!DOCTYPE html>
                <html>
                <body>

                <div style="color:#0000FF">
                <p>Text_1</p>
                </div>
                <div style="color:#0000FF">
                </div>
                <div style="color:#FF00FF">
                <p>Text_3</p>
                </div>

                </body>
                </html>

                Let's say I need to identify a DIV tag, which is a sibling of DIV tag with string Text_1, but only if the DIV tag contains no children elements. I'f I'm not mistaken, there is currently no way do it with the xpath?

                Here is the best xpath I was able to create:

                  • Ability to test Apple TV and Android TV

                    It would be great if you could make Ranorex able to instrument Apple TV apps and Android TV apps and make the automation run on either a physical device or an emulator.

                    • Non-transparent Screenshot Capturing

                      When a user uses transparent glass window style, unexpected background has included in the captured screenshot.
                      This will cause an image validation error.
                      It would be nice to add a screenshot capturing option, like "Set background color: [#FFFFFF]" or "Non-transparent capture".

                      • Remote test execution from Testsuite Runner / Webserver

                        I would like to setup a server where I can execute and monitor tests on remote agents.
                        Currently the only options (as I see it) is to install Ranorex Studio and occupy a Premium license.
                        It would be great if it was possible to run remote tests from the Testsuite runner (and thereby only occupy a runtime license).

                        An even better solution would be to have a webserver, where I could execute and monitor remote tests.

                            It would be great if it was possible to download the test report from remote agent after test run, instead of opening the report in Ranorex.

                              • Conditions enhancement: add possibility to set new data range if a condition is met

                                In many of my test cases, I need to set the data range, based of parent data connector variable or parameter value. Currently, I'm doing this via code, which is kind of messy and so obvious for new team members. Since we now have Conditions in Ranorex, it would be great to have an option not only enable/disable the container, but also set new data range. Thanks for considering this!

                                • Ranorex solution to run in Unix based CI

                                  When the whole CI runs on Unix OS, it gets difficult to integrate Ranorex Test solution in CI. As Ranorex only supports Windows based CI execution.

                                  Would like to see the solution to be able to run on UNIX OS.

                                    • Be able to set image validation Properties defaults

                                      In Settings it is possible to set the Image Similarity threshold for image comparisons to 0,97, such that for all image comparisons I will make in the future in the properties of those Validation steps the Image similarity is put to 0,97. Now I also would like to set as default the Properties-options: Report Similarity to Always and Continue on Fail to True. However I need to do this for every Validation I make again and again, is there no way to set it once and for all?

                                      • Add/improve object recognition for JPlanner (by MindFusion)

                                        Within our Java application, we have some "blind spots" for Ranorex. Java objects are readily recognised by Ranorex; JPlanner object recognition is very limited. This is because JPlanner uses Graphics2D to draw their objects, instead of them being true Java objects. Still, they do offer some Java access to these objects, so it might be possible to improve object recognition of JPlanner items in Ranorex. Hence this request.
