Advanced Tools

Post by Broadnick » Mon Feb 01, 2016 2:02 pm

Where could I find information about Ranorex Advanced Tools?

I try to understand what is the use of these tools, but I can find any help on User Guide or Forum...

- Task List
- XPATH Query

thanks

Could you provide some context?

Are you referring to the Task List in Ranorex Studio? Is so, that is a convention used by many IDEs (Integrated Development Environment) to show errors, warnings, and special comments (tasks) in the code. You can comment your code with "//TASK: Do something here" and the IDE will pick that up and show you a reminder for that comment in the Task List.

As for XPATH Query, again, more context (where do you see it, what are you doing at the time) would be helpful. Ranorex uses XPath as a basis for it's UI element identification system.

Can you post screen shots of the particular things you are asking about?
Shortcuts usually aren't...

Thanks for this information.

Regarding my second question, the XPATH QUERY tool can be found in the Ranorex "View" menu, "Advanced Tools" sub-menu. I think that it could be use to search for a specific XPATH used in code or repository, but it don't seems to be functional.

Hi Broadnick,

The XPath Query Tool is unfortunately not related to Ranorex Studio but to Sharp Develop (which is the basis of Ranorex Studio). Please find more information about this Query Tool in the following blog posting

Thank you for your understanding.
