Tools to empower everyone on the team

It’s not just for technical testers: Ranorex Studio’s abstraction layers enhance collaboration  

Ranorex Studio is designed to be used by everyone on the team. Business analysts can create SpecFlow BDD scenarios directly in Ranorex Studio. Non-technical testers can use the powerful capture-and-replay feature to automate tests, add validations, configure conditional execution, and set parameter values without writing code. Technical testers can create and share reusable code modules, and configure source control to ensure that test cases are properly managed. Trigger Ranorex tests directly from your CI server, and produce a test run report that can be read by management without the need for a Ranorex license. Enhance collaboration and empower the entire QA team with Ranorex Studio’s C# testing tools. 

Visual Studio or Ranorex Studio interface

Visual Studio or Ranorex Studio: it’s your choice

Access the Ranorex C# testing tools from within your preferred test development environment. 

Based on the Microsoft .NET environment, the Ranorex testing framework provides an API for C# and VB.NET that integrates with Visual Studio. Use your preferred development environment to create robust and flexible automation projects from scratch or enhance existing recordings in code. Ranorex Studio features such as smart folders, conditional execution,  nested loops, and soft assertions empower technical testers to conquer even the most difficult automation challenges.

“We decided on Ranorex based on the technologies it supports, simple integration with .NET using familiar languages like C# and, most importantly, its robust object recognition capabilities (Flex, Flash, ASP.NET and HTML).”

Why use Ranorex Studio for C# Test Automation

Ensure the highest quality of your C# project with the easy-to-use Ranorex functional test automation framework.

Ranorex Studio interface
Icon record and replay

Build tests quickly with reliable capture and replay, plus click-and-go actions.

For a fast start to your automation project, use the Ranorex Recorder to automatically capture UI actions and elements directly from your application. Then, enhance your recording with validations and parameters, add conditions for execution, and bind variables for data-driven testing. You can also easily configure actions to represent different mouse movements, include time delays, key shortcuts, or invoke actions.

Recognize objects even in mixed-technology applications

Use Ranorex Spy to investigate the user interface of your application, instantly track and analyze UI elements, and fill the central object repository with all controls utilized in your tests. You get consistent object identification across technologies. Spy generates a RanoreXPath for each element – a powerful syntax based on XPath that can uniquely identify UI elements even in mixed technology applications. 

Icon test automation IDE

Extend recordings or create user code modules in the full IDE

Speed up test development with a full IDE that includes features like intelligent code completion, code templates, debugging functionalities, refactoring mechanisms, and automation helpers. The Ranorex IDE facilitates best practices to reduce test maintenance, such as global and local parameters, reusable modules, smart folders, and setup/teardown sections. 

Icon object repository

Manage and organize UI elements in the Ranorex object repository

All elements that are identified by the Ranorex Spy are automatically saved in a hierarchical tree structure to the object repository. Each object automatically receives a unique and logical name, and includes a screenshot of the element it represents. The object repository separates the identification information from test actions, to provide improved test maintainability.

Create Selenium WebDriver tests, and execute them on a Selenium grid

Selenium WebDriver is built into the Ranorex Studio core API, so that you, aren’t limited to simply triggering Selenium tests: you can create them entirely within the Ranorex IDE, using codeless tools, if desired. Run tests in parallel with the Ranorex parallel runner or distribute them on a Selenium Grid. Read more about the benefits of the Ranorex Studio integration with Selenium WebDriver. 

Icon test run report

Produce and share test run reports with the built-in reporting API

Ranorex includes an API for comprehensive reporting. The fully-customizable XML-based report, which can be shared and viewed on machines where Ranorex is not installed, is easily understandable for non-technical users and provides a comprehensive overview of the test execution flow. It includes screenshots, is JUnit-compatible, and allows you to directly jump to failed test cases out of the report.
