  1. module browser: allow to create folders, delete items, move items

    The useability in the module browser is very poor: It is not possible to create folders, move modules or delete modules.
    For theese operations I have to use the projects browser.

    • PopupWatcher implementation or similar functionality with use of Selenium endpoints.

      Currently PopupWatchers are incompatible with Selenium endpoints because they are single thread.

      • Programmatically connect devices to Ranorex through an API

        I would like to be able to programmatically connect a device to Ranorex so that I could run tests without the need to connect these devices using the GUI.

        • Can no longer read old reports when updated from 6.0.0 to 7.0.1.

          The reports from before I updated are all blank. These reports are important reference material for managers to prove progress and to document which Application Under test versions have been tested and Passed etc. We need a way of reading them preferably by upgrading the reports to the 7.0.1 display but a utility to view the reports in the old style would be fine too.

          • F#

            I'd like the option of using F# in Ranorex. It is a .NET supported language.

            Any on else interested?

            Fom this blog by Scott Hanselman:

            https://www.hanselman.com/blog/NuGetPackageOfTheWeekCanopyWebTestingFrameworkWithF.aspx

            Canopy is a "f#rictionless web testing" framework that combines the flexibility of Selenium with the clean look of the F# language.

            Thank you & best wishes.

            • Expand the Run Configurations Menu field such that long descriptions are visible

              Expand the Run Configurations Menu field such that long descriptions are visible.
              Now it seems the the length of the field is limited to 17 characters (see Snapshot).

              • QtWeb with "multiple" feature

                Ranorex does not support QtWeb for browser-testing; if this feature is implemented, this will be very helpful to many users.

                This topic has been discussed in the forum: http://www.ranorex.com/forum/qtweb-with-multiple-t10677.html

                • Run from in a testsuite with several recorded modules

                  Currently i cannot run testsuites from an abrupted recorded modul.
                  I have several testsuites with several modules.
                  If ranorex cancelled by a testmodul, i want run from the next modul in the actual test suite.
                  This functionality is in Ranorex axtuality not existent.

                  • Distributed (or Coordinated) recording over network

                    records all user actions of SUT running on different computers over network.

                    i.e., one(1) recording computer,
                    several target computers running SUT.

                    • Other settings for the duration property to save time during running the tests.

                      It would be helpful to be able to set the duration property to 2 seconds, 5 seconds and 20 seconds, to save time during running the tests.

                      • Allow mixed fixed and proportional locations

                        Currently action coordinates must be either fixed (5;10) or proportional (05, 0.25). I would like to see mixed coordinates allowed, this would simplify clicking items that might, for example, be top center aligned in a table. If the row height is very large using the UpperCenter location might still miss a small top center aligned checkbox. It would be useful to be able to enter (0.5, 15) in order to click the checkbox accurately no matter how the cell dimensions might change.

                        • Page Object generator

                          I want to select a form in the UI or an UI description (e.g. in WPF in XML-format) and automatically generate Page Objects. This would save a lot of tedious and manual work.

                          • XML DataConnector

                            An XML data Connector with each node in the schema referring to a Test Case as a Default would be of tremendous help in a Test Suite. It can potentially, solve the multiple iteration of nested Test Cases. Also, it will help in validating the Input Test Data against XSD.
                            (Well when you have XML, JSON is not very far)

                            • Add Clickeable Property

                              Becasue of new development environments that use the same web objects for buttons and other objects; I think you could use the clickable function like selenium does to avoid using objects that are not available or hidden.

                              • Domain Global Variable for Web Testing

                                We are doing a lot of web testing and use multiple servers in the process - development, QA, staging, etc. When we create a test we have to then modify the test and the DOM it to point to a global $URL variable. This allows us to run the test bed against multiple servers by setting $URL to the servers domain name. While this works fine, it's a lot of clicking around. Seems to me that you could have a parameter called $URL that we could set and "turn on" so that each time we created a new test the…

                                • Action List Ordering by Type Freedom

                                  Currently all the Actions in a Recording can at best be moved around through Drag & Drop, but I think that it would be very helpful if one could active a sort of "Action List Edit" modus in which the Actions List can be rearrange by the desired type of action say all Validate Compare Image, User Code, Set Value actions (Without loosing their actual numerical sequence) this would hugely help the editing of large Recordings. Example:

                                  1 Mouse Click
                                  2 Validate Attribute Text....
                                  3 Mouse Click

                                  5 User Code...
                                  6 User Code...

                                  • Replace 'helperscreenshot' and 'icon' data from XML with PNG/JPG/BMP files

                                    Currently, Ranorex recordings use 'helperscreenshot' and 'icon' data from XML, which is neither human-readable nor Git-readable. It would be nice to get this data into regular PNG/jpg/bmp files so that I might store them with git-lfs, both cleaning up my repo and cleaning up my pull requests (as Github will be able to generate previews if we use a standard file format).
