Add file as resource

Post by PR91 » Wed Feb 06, 2019 9:39 am

Hi,
I have to execute sql file from ranorex.
I want to put it in a Ranorex as a resource (after building, file should be in Debug folder).
Problem is that I don't know how to add file to Ranorex as a resource (like in Visual Studio).
Using 'Add item...' causes error 'Compiling single files is not supported, please create a project!'.

Hi,

All you have to do is to put the file(s) anywhere in your project directory, e.g. using windows explorer and then set the file to copy to output dir...

The only problem is, that you must repeat the process (steps 2-4) for every single added file, which is quite annoying. There is already a feature request to improve the workflow by implementing multiselection. Please vote for it here:

  • Ranorex xPath of problematic element(s)
  • Ranorex version
  • OS version
  • HW configuration
