Ideas to Improve Ranorex

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

  1. 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.

  2. 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.)

  3. Improved watch functionality

    The way in which we can maintain watches on variables within the code library appears to be limited. It would be nice if we could
    - highlight a variable in the code and add a watch via right clicking and using the context menu.
    - add a context menu to the textbox shown when adding a watch (currently you can't right click to paste in what you want it to be for example). The watch window itself looks like it could be tidied up a little.
    - show the treeview in the watch window correctly. Currently if the watch item…

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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");.

  15. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. 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.
