Automate Ranorex itself ....

Post by jonnyatnet » Sat Apr 21, 2012 11:43 am

Hi

I am currently searching for an Automated UI Testing Framework which can be integrated in a self made UI Testing Suite.

Is there any possibility to interact with Ranorex Itself (e.g. over the COM Interface, or over the command-line-interface). Use Cases in particular are:
-create a new Ranorex Test Case with name and File-System-Path
-start the recorder for a specified Test Case
-rebuild the Test-Case-Executable (after user-definied modifications in the Test C#-Code)

Is there any possibility to interact with Ranorex?

kind regards
jonny

The Ranorex Core is a .NET API, consequently you can just add references to the core DLLs and use the provided automation methods. See the Ranorex User Guide for more info:

Most of those tasks would probably include opening Ranorex Tools and controls. This is possible, but not officially supported, and the API for Ranorex tools and controls may change with version updates.

The license needed to run the individual Ranorex methods depends on the functionality invoked by the methods. E.g. searching for UI elements using Ranorex requires a Runtime License while opening the Ranorex Recorder requires a Premium License.
