  1. Allow selection of multiple modules in Projects view

    Sometimes I need to move or delete multiple modules quickly. Moving or Deletion of modules only possible from Projects view.

    Unfortunately it is not possible to select multiple modules e.g. using Ctrl or Shift key in Projects view to do that.
    Please implement multiple selection in Projects view

    • Module Groups Including Other Module Groups

      Today Module Groups can contain recordings. I am constantly wishing I could create a module group which included other module groups. This would go a long way toward both DRYing up code, reducing time spent during design, and improving reusability.

      • Support End to End testing (i.e. Testcase execution on at least two machines)

        When your testcase deals with client and server applications (referring to thick client server applications)
        Part of the testcase has to be executed on Machine A (Server) and then part of the testcase has to be executed on Machine B (Client) and finally verify test has executed successfully or not. We should have ability to execute part of the test in a specified target machine and get result of execution.

        Example scenario:
        Machine A: Create test data through some X number of UI operations
        Machine B: Execute workflow as data should have been received from machine A.
        Machine A: Now…

        • Ranorex Script should run in headless mode

          As Ranorex script requires a active desktop. It is always not possible to open the desktop in case script is integrated with the build. Ranorex script must be executed in headless mode similar to selenium.

          • I would like to use Breakpoints from my Solution page on Test cases and Recording modules

            It would save time to be able to stop the test where I want, look at the state of the application the continue the test if the application is working as expected. This would also be useful for training so I could stop the test where I want explain what the test has just done then continue to the next break point.

            • Action Mouse Move+Click

              When testing a HTML form, before performing a click in an item it is recommended to perform a move operation to avoid clicking in mistaken positions of the screen, This two operations (move and click) will resolve the item path independtly increasing not only the execution time but also the length of the test. It would be nice to have an integrated move+click action.

              • Allow users to create TestCases(or SmartFolders) with the same name.

                In different hierarchies of a test suite, allow users to create TestCases(or SmartFolders) with the same name.

                • Make Offline Help available again

                  Since version 7.1.0 there is no offline help available any longer. Since we are using Ranorex on PCs without connection to the internet, no help in Ranorex is available any longer.

                  It would be good, if offline help would be re-introduced in Ranorex. version 7.1.0

                  • Toggle Button for Turbo Mode

                    Simple on/off button for Turbo Mode applicable in all recording modules would be fine. I believe that most of us would appreciate this enhancement. Thank you

                    • Add search boxes for parameters and variable binding

                      Foremost in big projects there are many parameters and variable bindings. Sometimes it is really messy to find the correct one. In addition, the parameters can not be sorted by name, which makes the search even more difficult. Maybe filters for unbound and bound might be cool too.

                      • Image Compare

                        The Implementation off Image comare is actually not so convined for Web testing. An Image compare will fail with Other Browsers. we need differet images for differet Browsers. We have a lot of different Images for other customers. It is not easy to handle lot off Images. Also would be nice to have different algorithm to comapare Images.

                        • Merge Ranorex reports together into one report.

                          It would be nice to be able to merge 2 or more reports together into one. For example if you run two individual Test Suits on seperate virtual machines and then export the report into a folder then it would merge those together to form a single report.

                          • Support enum as parameter-type in UserCodeMethods

                            Currently basic types as parameters are supported for UserCodeMethods like string, double etc.
                            It would be very helpful, if enums would also be supported:

                            [UserCodeMethod]
                            public static void MyUserMethod(RepoItemInfo repItem, MyEnum action)
                            {

                            }

                            public enum MyEnum {
                            A,B,C
                            }

                            In the recording view the user should see a dropdown with the all the possible enum-values listed.

                            Current workaround is using a string as parameter without providing the user any help what are possible values. Also I have to validate the user-input before usage.

                            • Ranorex on Mac

                              It would be a really great idea to have Ranorex being able to test Mac Desktop app. .NET Core has been released for Linux and Mac, so it would be something interesting to look in order to make this possible

                              • Using variables as parts of repository paths

                                Currently it is already possible to use variables inside repository-item-paths as placeholders for attribute values (see $test1). This could be improved by allowing variables as parts of the path as in the attached screenshot (see $test2). If this is possible, controls used often in an application could share repository items and just replacing a part of the path with a specific path.
                                At the time we accomplish this effect by a code module that does the replacement for us, but this is then no longer necessary.

                                • Create several test reports in one execution of test suite

                                  It would be useful if we could run a whole test suite but create several test report files, selecting which test cases/smart folders will be included in every report file.
                                  It is usefull because we can run all the test suite once and create a report for every test set regarding a specific functionality or specific type of test...

                                  • Optional recording variable (with default value)

                                    It would be useful to have a way to disable the warning when a variable is not meant to always be bound.
                                    When the 'optional' flag is set, change the warning to tell the user to set a default value.
                                    When 'optional' and default value are set, the warning disappears.

                                    • Progressive Report Preview for Remote Test Execution

                                      When my tests are running on some Agents it would be great to see the progress / status of the execution. E.g. which tests did pass already, what went wrong so far, ....

                                      • Make screen shot sizes larger in pdf reports. Currently, screen shots are not legible in print outs.

                                        We are a regulated company and need to add pdf reports as a proof of evidence to test plans for inspections. However, screen shots in pdf reports are too small and are not legible in print outs. Even increasing screen shot size to 100% does not help. Please make screen shots larger so that the numbers, letters etc on screen shots can be more visible and readable in print outs.

                                        • Conditions enhancement: Allow the use of a variable/parameter on the right side of the condition

                                          Currently a condition allows a parameter or variable on the left side but only a string on the right side of the equal/not equal sign. I would like the ability to use a parameter/variable in place of the string.
