    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

    I agree with Dan and Marc as a first iteration that would be fine, the other points are just 'nice to have'.

    In my opinion, SharpDevelop, which Ranorex is based on, is a dead IDE - no longer in development. This means the IDE and intellisense only recognises up to C# 5 and is missing out on the features of C#6 and 7. Although if you have the updated compilers, the projects will compile fine using C#6 syntax etc.

    So my first point would be a Visual Studio plugin would enable the use of up-to-date developments in C# and modern IDE features (including code analysis etc.).

    Below are the features I would expect from a VS plugin:

    1. Repository GUI with access to Ranorex Spy.
    2. A visualisation and editor for recordings.
    3. A visualization and editor for test suite files (including the data source and bindings).
    4. Integration with the test explorer.
    5. Ability to create and trigger test runs/configurations for remote agents.
    6. Ranorex report viewer.

    (basically Ranorex in Visual Studio)

    It would be useful to have the option to merge the individual test reports from a test sequence. Currently each test suite in a test sequence creates a separate report and since the Ranorex studio view only allows one report to be displayed at one time, we only see the last report and have to manually go and select the previous reports if we want them.

    I can however, see the usefulness of having multiple reports too maybe this is worth thinking about - perhaps link them with some kind of test sequence report manifest that can be opened to show the combined report?

    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
