  1. Run Configuration dependent [SETUP] & [TEARDOWN]

    Make [SETUP] & [TEARDOWN] regions configurable - add the possibility of having smart folders and using check-boxes to select specific steps for specific Run Configurations.

  3. Ability to disable/enable mixed selection of TestCases/SmartForlders and recordings.

    Please add the ability to disable/enable mixed selection of TestCases/SmartForlders and recordings.

    Currently, it's only possible to disable/enable TestCases/SmartFolders and Recordings separately. In other words, one can't select mix of TestCases/SmartFolders and recordings and then from right click menu, disable them all at once. This is only possible with Recordings (code modules). TestCases and Smart Folders must be "disabled" (unchecked) one by one, via their respective checkbox. Thanks in advance!

  5. Easily selectable and out-of-the-box report views

    Currently the reports are very customizable, which is great for companies that need a lot of flexibility. There would be much value however in having "starting point" templates that show how the reports can be customized. Without standard training like this we are left to hack together our own reports the best we can.

    These templates would give out-of-the-box standard ways to generate Summary, Simple, Dashboard or Advanced report views (among others) to get someone that has never customized a report going in the right direction.

  6. Add custom variable to Report File name

    We like to use custom variables, which were generated during testing, an add these value(s) to the Report File name.

    We want to this feature to add serial numbers of our products to the filename.

  7. Fill the cases attributes (Type, Priority...) in Testrail automatically with Ranorex Studio

    Fill the cases attributes (Type, Priority...) in Testrail automatically with Ranorex Studio.
    These fields would appears and could be fill in Ranorex Studio when the Testrail integration would be done.

  8. Please add support for Perforce souce control

    Since Ranorex does not support Perforce source control it is very hard to merge the .rxrep and .rxtst files when multiple people are developing in parallel.

  9. Have option to ignore case when comparing UI text vs a database variable

    I have a scenario where I need to compare text that is in a table on my page vs a value returned from a data driven loop. If the text on the UI is cased differently than my db value, it fails. I had to write code to convert the db variable to match the casing to do the compare. It seems very simple to have check to say "ignore case" and do the compare as all lowercase conversions.

  11. pause

    I would need a function, which makes a planned pause during the test run (means, the test run waits for a user input via hotkey or simple GUI) and then continues.
    This is not supposed to be related with working / not working test case, but a planned break.

  13. Elapsed time for steps at the time of execution

    Ranorex was bought in our company by the quality management team for our software products.
    No I'm using it for Application Performance Monitoring.

    With a few lines of C# code I measure the ellapsed time for getting the login page our web-app (with some reference measurements to migrate deviation) --> Service Level Agreements

    It works pretty well, but it would be simplyer if I could get the measurements from ranorex at the time of execution.

    (Parsing the report for the execution time is difficult too, because we have a lot of changes in the test cases at the moment)

  14. A couple of ideas on Global Parameters

    What I would find useful for Global Parameters:


    • somehow mark, in the reports, which ones were actually bound to the current test


    • export the global parameters to some XML or CSV file and import them back into another solution

  15. Build the Ranorex Solution without having the Repository.cs file in the solution folder

    Lack of Ranorex plugin in Teamcity we build our Ranorex solution via visual studio and because of that we need to store Repository.cs file in version control system.
    We always have merge conflict in this file and after the merge we need to rebuild our solution in Ranorex studio so that it re-generates Repository.cs file.

    Could you create a solution for this problem or creating Ranorex plugin to Teamcity?

    Thank you,
    Geza

  16. Enable mouse on maintenance mode

    Currently it is not possible to use the mouse during the maintenance dialog if you have disabled mouse in the program.cs file.

    It would be great if the maintenance mode re-enables all controls during it appearance.

  18. Multi-touch gesture support

    Touch has been partially supported for a while but does not include complex gestures such as two finger pinch, twist, swipe etc

    Multi-touch gestures should be supported.

  19. Have a setting to select an alternate AbortKey without having to go to code

    Newer Dell notebooks and Surface tablets no longer have a labeled Pause key. Our workaround has been to change Keyboard.AbortKey in the Program.cs file. Since the lack of a Pause key is machine-based it would be useful to have a user setting to select / override the coded Pause key.

  20. Mask global parameters in Data Binding and Report files

    When using the ********************* plugin for example, all the Report files that will be sent to the board contain your credentials (defined in the global parameter section) such as the user name and the password. This is a huge security issue because everyone who has access to the board can actually download the Report files and search for the password defined as $Jira_Password = 'abc' for example.
