Ideas to Improve Ranorex

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

  1. Add ability to change adapter.functionexecutiontimeout in recording settings

    Add ability to change adapter.functionexecutiontimeout in the settings for 'Current Recording' and 'Recorder Defaults' so that we have better control of when Ranorex reports an 'ApplicationNotRespondingException'.

    This extra control will allow us to detect unresponsive AUT more accurately and allow the timeout to be extended where the AUT is expected to be unresponsive e.g. hard drive read/write or slow network etc.

  2. Ranorex editor and national keyboard layout

    Please do not override general keyboard handler in Ranorex Editor.

    Ranorex is not able to handle national keyboards ex. Hungarian keyboard.
    For example: "{" and "}" characters are accessible by <Alt Gr><B> and <Alt Gr><N> respectively. I need to switch to English keyboard (from my default Hungarian one) to type those characters while editing user code. This is very inconvenient since Hungarian keyboards do not show English layout.

  3. Mobile key press {Overview}

    Add 'Recent Apps'/'Overview' option to the Android mobile key press action to allow a test to fully close an app rather than 'minimise' it through the {Home} option. If an app cannot be instrumented then it can still be tested through the OS, but the CloseApplication action doesn't work on OS apps.

  4. Expected image and Searched image use diff image type

    When checking ranorex report, I found the Expected Image and Searched Image use different file type, Expected image is jpg, and Searched Image is png. it will cause false alarm when doing the comparison.

    if possible could we use same image type for expected and searched image? it is a good choice to use png since png quality is better than jpg.

  5. Web Capturing for API Testing

    If I want to run an API/Service layer test, it would be great to be able to record these calls.

  6. Set preferred TestSuite in Project (from Ranorex 8.2)

    It would be nice to have an option to set a preferred test suite.
    Normally it took the testsuite from the startup project. But now you can have multiple test suites in one project.


    • Project
      -- ProjectTestSuite
      -- NewProjectTestSuite (Set this one as prefered test suite)

    This would be an added value for the testsuite icon button in the top menu bar.

  7. Support for Dyalog APL UI elements

    Currently only some of the elements on APL Dyalog windows are recognized such as Text fields , RawText fields, however there is no support for Grids, Elements name are dynamically generated each time, meaning no testability around it

  8. Add iteration count for whole test sequence

    It would be great with an iteration count that comprises the entire test sequence, so that we will be able to run a sequence x number of times.

  9. Provide a selenium infrastructure like "selenium-grid-extras"

    It would be really helpful if you can implement on each ranorex installation a Selenium Grid Extra Konfiguration to configure the wedriver central. This would also add a possibility to recorde the whole testcase and provide a video at the end. This could be helpful to verify that all steps were passed successfully for customers which shouldn_'t get a full qualified report.

  11. Ability to Abort Test Suite Execution.

    On a condition, or through user code, allow the Test suite to be aborted, similar to the way that a recording module or smart folder can be through report.failure();, or throw new RanorexException("INVALID URL");.

  12. Display errors/warnings if the Ranorex file has locked by any other tools

    When any Ranorex file (e.g. Recording.cs) has opened and locked by any other tool, Ranorex could not save the file modified, but the project build finished with no errors/warnings.
    This cause that the automation module has not updated.

    So it is usable if Ranorex throws errors/warnings if the Ranorex file has locked by any other tools.

  14. Snapshot Editor

    Provide a suite of tools for editing Snapshots.

    Very often users are dealing with sensitive data and cannot post a snapshot of a troublesome element to the forums.

    I'd like to see a means to find and remove specific data in an ad hoc manner and a way to remove a set of standard data in some sort of config file.

  16. Scheduled/Programmable Test Execution

    Allow the user to either schedule, or better yet programmatically chose when to execute tests. (for example, every night at 8 pm, or when a change has been made to a GIT code repo.)
    Obviously this could be expanded to contain many different scenarios, but the one that would most likely benefit the greatest majority of people would be a simple calendar style, allowing repeated, scheduled test execution.

  17. 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.

    Best Regards,
    The Ranorex Product Management Team

  19. Manipulation of Reports and JUnit file

    Like my question in this post:
    https://www.ranorex.com/forum/test-case-classname-renaming-t11952.html

    It would be great to manipulate attributes of test cases inside a report, especially in the JUnit export file.

    When importing the JUnit report into our ALM system it generates a unique name from the test cases name and classname.

    In case of databinding (e.g. Excel) these names end with "DataIteration x" where x stands for the Excel row/iteration index.

    When the sorting of the Excel changes or lines are moved/deleted/added, the DataIteration index doesn't match anymore. That would destroy the ALM data.

    It would be great to have the ability to set…

  20. Remove temporary test suite variable values in Release configuration

    Test suite variables are often used to pass values from one test case to another. For instance, a producer test case A writes a value in a variable x and a consumer test case B (which belongs to the same higher level test case) reads the value afterwards.

    During test case development or debugging, one often fills test suite variables with temporary values in order to save execution time. For instance, if a developer wants to execute test case B without having to execute test case A first, he can do so by assigning a (temporary) default value to the…
