  1. Keyboard shortcuts for Ranorex Studio control

    Some more shortcuts like 'Ctrl+w' (close Modul), 'Ctrl+Tab' (jump to next tab/module) for better usabilty of Ranorex would be great

  2. Conditional execution at the test step level...

    Would be very useful if there was a way to set one or more steps in a recording to run or be skipped over if previous step (be it a validation or another action) failed or passed.

    This would essentially be a very basic if-then-else at the step level within a single recording where the subsequent step's execution is dependent on the result of a previous step.

    Please see attached for a specific example where this would be beneficial but really this could be used all throughout different scenarios.

    Example1: execute validation step if previous step passed but skip if…

  3. Mobile Testing: Add a "clear cache" function to the Ranorex Browser (API included)

    Some tests just won't work if the cache can't be cleared, e.g. registering new users to a website. I don't want to be forced to clear the cache manually every time by using third party apps or non-trivial workarounds, so adding a "clear cache" function to the RxBrowser would be very helpful both on Android and iOS devices.

  4. Allow Creation and Deletion of TestSuites/TestCases.

    Ranorex studio has an immense setup for TestSuites and TestCases, but they can't be controlled in code.
    If we're using the license, we should have flexibility to Create and Teardown Test Suites and Test Cases. It doesn't make too much sense that we can't do this in Ranorex studio.

    The basic functionality is great for non-programmers, but this toolset would free programmers to make truly dynamic test cases

  5. Support new NuGet format

    In Visual Studio 2017 NuGet is intregated into MSBuild using PackageReference instead of the packages.config.
    This has some advantages, such as improved overview, improved performance etc.
    It would be great if Ranorex would comply with this new format.

  6. Having the possibility to use dynamic capablilites in RanoreXPath

    Having the possibility to use dynamic capabilities in RanoreXPath in mobile web documents as it works with general web documents.

    For example with general web documents it is possible to do :

    /dom[@domain='example.com']//a[@data-i='1']

    This does not work when testing in a mobile browser, as it is not possible to make a selection on a dynamic capability.

    It would be great to have it working for both, to ensure the testing can be done on each device/browser.

  7. xpath relationship operator to return an HTML cell, based of cell found in row and column

    Currently, there is no way to define an xpath, which would return a cell, based of cell found in HTML row and given table column.

    Here is an example of simple HTML table:
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>
    <body>

    <table style="width:100%">
    <tr>
    <td>ID</td>
    <td>Col_A</td>
    <td>Col_B</td>
    <td>Col_C</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td>ABC123</td>
    <td>3</td>
    <td>2</td>
    <td>1</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td>CDE456</td>
    <td>11</td>
    <td>22</td>
    <td>33</td>
    </tr>
    </table>

    </body>
    </html>

    Now let's say, I want to define an xpath, which would return a value from column "Col_B", but only from the row, in which is found cell value "CDE456". Something like this is currently not possible with single xpath.

    There…

  8. Make hotkey of instant Tracking feature configurable

    Hi Folks,

    im using Ranorex in an Windows 10 Environment and i take advantage of the windows 10 multi desktop feature.
    When i switch the desktops (Hotkey CTRL+WIN and an Arrow Key) and clicking something to fast, the Ranorex Intant Tracking feature will be aktivated and add random stuff to my repository.

    So here the Question: Is there any possibility to deaktivate the feature or to change the hotkey?
    I am using Ranorex 8.01

    Best regards,
    Kai

  9. Allow access to repository and module groups from referenced module library .dll

    Today when referencing a module library (.dll file) from another solution, "only" recording and code modules are directly available. It would be very valuable if one could reach the repository and module groups from the referenced module library.

    A big part of the work of creating automated tests are to create reliable and solid definitions of repository items. If these items could be defined centrally in a module library which could then be referenced and reused from many other test suites it would allow for a better structure and increased possibility to reuse repositories, minimizing double work and most important…

  10. Data binding during runtime for parallel testing using selenium web driver

    At present changing the data connector during runtime depending on the grid node on which the test is currently running is not possible. Ranorex always executes the test on the grid hub endpoint and so, Ranorex can’t identify what node the grid hub is currently choosing for running the test.

    It would be really helpful if Ranoex can Support the execution of the same testsuite parallely on different nodes but with different data source.

  11. Execute TestCase via cmd inclusive the parent steps (e.g. setup of an root smartfolder)

    Execute Testcase by selecting it in the Testsuite, implicitly select and execute the parent steps (e. g. a Setup of an parent smartfolder). If you will execute it, via the command line (/tc:TESTCASE), only the TESTCASE, without the parent steps, will be execute. Finally there is no way to get the same behavior by using the command line.

  12. Make Ranorex work on linux

    It would be great if we can use Ranorex on linux, then we can test applications developed for linux.

  13. Conditions Enhancement - extend the options beyond equals and not equals.

    We assign a level to each of our tests and it would be nice to be able to select them using conditions - e.g. if <= test level then run test.
    Having to add rules to cover all the higher level tests is clumsy.

  14. 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.

  15. Add authentication to add Ranorex Agent

    Currently, there is no authentication process to add an Agent. Any Ranorex user in my network can connect to my agent and run any script on it without my permission. It would be great if an authentication key can be added to add a Ranorex Agent so that the key can be provided to limited members to add Ranorex Agent.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Possibility to iterate over columns instead of rows in data tables

    This makes sense for language translation tables, where ther are appr. 4 languages and hundrets of texts in each language.

  20. 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.
