How to Use Ranorex With Chrome Dev Tools Through Selenium 4

Dec 14, 2023 | Product Insights, Test Automation Insights

Ranorex With Chrome Dev Tools

With the release of Ranorex 11.0, we’ve introduced support for the Selenium 4 WebDriver protocol, integrating Chrome Dev Tools capabilities. This enhancement allows testers to access and interact with features like Network Condition, Memory Status, Security, and GeoLocation in Chrome using Ranorex. As an example, a user can access and set the geolocation settings, emulate the request from a specific device, and interact with the network requests and responses.

 

How to Add User Code to Your Solution

To leverage these new capabilities, here’s how you can add user code to your Ranorex solution:

  1. Right-click to add the user code collection
  2. Select ‘insert new user code method”
  3. Make it public static
  4. Save it
  5. Go to the recording module
  6. Click on add new action
  7. Select use code
  8. User-defined methods will display

The Ranorex WebDriver Integration with Selenium 4 can access the Chrome Dev Tools with some simple user code. To get started make sure your header looks like this:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using System.Text.RegularExpressions;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Threading;
using WinForms = System.Windows.Forms;

using Ranorex;
using Ranorex.Core;
using Ranorex.Core.Repository;
using Ranorex.Core.Testing;

namespace ChromeDevTools

 

Security Starting Point for the User

public void PlayWithSecurity()
        {
            var devToolsSession = Host.Current.GetDevToolsSession();
            if (devToolsSession != null) {
                var session = (OpenQA.Selenium.DevTools.DevToolsSession) devToolsSession.GetBrowserSession();
                if (session != null) {
                    var domains = session.GetVersionSpecificDomains<OpenQA.Selenium.DevTools.V114.DevToolsSessionDomains>();
                    var security = domains.Security;
                    var command = new OpenQA.Selenium.DevTools.V114.Security.SetIgnoreCertificateErrorsCommandSettings();
                    command.Ignore = true;
                    security.SetIgnoreCertificateErrors(command).Wait();
                }
            }
        } 

 

GeoLocation Starting Point for the User

 public void PlayWithGeoConditions()

                if (session != null) {
                    var domains = session.GetVersionSpecificDomains<OpenQA.Selenium.DevTools.V114.DevToolsSessionDomains>();
                    
                    var emulation = domains.Emulation;
                    var geolocationCommand = new OpenQA.Selenium.DevTools.V114.Emulation.SetGeolocationOverrideCommandSettings();
                    geolocationCommand.Latitude = 50.2334;
                    geolocationCommand.Longitude = 0.2334;
                    geolocationCommand.Accuracy = 1;
                    Report.Log(ReportLevel.Info, "Selenium""Set geolocation");
                    emulation.SetGeolocationOverride(geolocationCommand).Wait();
                }
            }
        }

 

Memory Starting Point for the User

  public void PlayWithMemory()
        {
            var devToolsSession = Host.Current.GetDevToolsSession();
            if (devToolsSession != null) {
                var session = (OpenQA.Selenium.DevTools.DevToolsSession) devToolsSession.GetBrowserSession();
                if (session != null) {
                    var domains = session.GetVersionSpecificDomains<OpenQA.Selenium.DevTools.V114.DevToolsSessionDomains>();
                    
                    var memory = domains.Memory;
                    OpenQA.Selenium.DevTools.V114.Memory.GetDOMCountersCommandResponse response = memory.GetDOMCounters().GetAwaiter().GetResult();
                    Report.Log(ReportLevel.Info, "Selenium", response.Nodes.ToString());
                }
            }
        } 

 

Network Conditions Starting Point for the User

     public void PlayWithNetworkConditions()
        {
            var devToolsSession = Host.Current.GetDevToolsSession();
            if (devToolsSession != null) {
                var session = (OpenQA.Selenium.DevTools.DevToolsSession) devToolsSession.GetBrowserSession();
                if (session != null) {
                    var domains = session.GetVersionSpecificDomains<OpenQA.Selenium.DevTools.V114.DevToolsSessionDomains>();
                    var network = domains.Network;
                    network.Enable(new OpenQA.Selenium.DevTools.V114.Network.EnableCommandSettings()).Wait();
                    
                    var networkConditionsCommand = new OpenQA.Selenium.DevTools.V114.Network.EmulateNetworkConditionsCommandSettings();
                    networkConditionsCommand.Latency = 5000;
                    Report.Log(ReportLevel.Info, "Selenium""Emulate network conditions");
                    network.EmulateNetworkConditions(networkConditionsCommand).Wait();
                }
            }
        }

 

Network Request Starting Point for the User

       public void PlayWithNetworkRequests()
        {
            var devToolsSession = Host.Current.GetDevToolsSession();
            if (devToolsSession != null) {
                var session = (OpenQA.Selenium.DevTools.DevToolsSession) devToolsSession.GetBrowserSession();
                if (session != null) {
                    var domains = session.GetVersionSpecificDomains<OpenQA.Selenium.DevTools.V114.DevToolsSessionDomains>();
                    var network = domains.Network;
                    network.ResponseReceived += ResponseReceivedHandler;
                    
                    network.Enable(new OpenQA.Selenium.DevTools.V114.Network.EnableCommandSettings()).Wait();
                }
            }
