    Thank you for your input.

    What are the exact features that you would want to have? What should this plugin’s functionality be?

    The minimun requirement would probably be an easy-to-use repository in some way, but what would you need in addition to that?

    We would appreciate some feedback on this.

    Best Regards,
    The Ranorex Product Management Team

    1) The SharpDevelop IDE is a bit lackluster compared to full blown first party Visual Studio. IntelliSense and design time error notification are key points in that regard.
    2) VisualStudio has a vast backlog of helpful plug-ins that I find lacking in Ranorex. This is to the point where if I'm writing code, I'll open the solution in visual studio anyway. This can become troublesome when I want to add things like bindable module variables.
    3) object repository and spy. When I'm hammering out code, sometimes I have to stop and switch back to Ranorex to get an object in the repo. The breaks the workflow so much that I'm often tempted (and do) write the RxPath for objects in the code itself. I cringe even admitting it.

    ___EDIT___
    Just to point out, you can get (most) current C# features by installing Microsoft Build tools. And adjusting your project settings. This is far from ideal, but there it is.

    Thank you again for your input.

    We have investigated this, and also created a working prototype. However, it required some weird hacks in the background, and also the usability (special syntax) felt weird. We decided to not ship this feature for now until we can come up with a solution that feels better.

    Best Regards,
    Thomas from the Ranorex Product Management Team

    Thank you all for bringing this to our attention. This topic is currently the number one topic in our User Voice. We are aware that our API documentation is far from perfect, and we see the value in improving it ourselves.

    We are currently investigating the options we have for this API documentation. We are not sure yet about details like the format or the platform. Additionally, there are some parts of the API are not meant for public use and only enable Ranorex Studio to do specific things, etc.

    This means, we are aware of the issue and we are trying to figure out how to tackle this best.

    Best Regards,
    The Ranorex Product Management Team

    Thank you again for your input.

    We are currently closely investigating this is part of a larger change for the repository view.

    Basically, we have two options: Making sorting only on view level, or on data level. Both has advantages and disadvantages. If we only do it on view level, the changes through sorting won’t be persistent, if we do it on data level, they will be persistent. In the first case, a new element would automatically appear in the “correct” location, in the latter case it would appear at the bottom and in order to get the list sorted again, you would have to sort the list again. If it is only on view level, you can’t manually rearrange elements anymore, they would be sorted and that’s it.

    What behavior would you as a user expect or prefer?

    Best Regards,
    Thomas from the Ranorex Product Management Team

    Being able to sort alphabetically would be a huge time saver.

    Currently we are investigating all possible use cases for this idea.
    It would help us a lot if you could comment your project setup and how you are adding Ranorex to it. Thx a lot.

    Best regards

    Thank you for your input.

    We are currently investigating a few improvements for the conditions feature.

    We still think that conditions should almost never be used in black box testing, but we see them as a tool that can and should be used in a few exceptions. Therefore we don’t want to build upon what we currently have to make it a full feature. However, we will consider a few Quality of Life improvements.
