BUG: Adding group from other project does not add Reference

Post by krstcs » Thu Jan 09, 2014 10:53 pm

When adding a Module Group from one project into another, a reference is not created in the second project for the first project.

So, let's say I have 2 projects, P1 and P2 that look like this:

Code: Select all

P1
--Groups
----P1G1
----P1G2
--Modules
----P1M1
----P1M2

P2
If I drag P1G1 into P2, the reference to P1 is NOT added to P2. If I drag P1M1 to P2 then it does add the reference.

Hello krstcs

Unfortunately it is not possible to copy module groups to other projects since they just store the IDs and references of the recordings belonging to them. You may copy the recording itself to the other project and create a new module group.

Robert

Robert,

I'm sorry for the confusion, I should have been more specific.

I did not COPY the group into the other project, I dragged it into the other project's SUITE.

Ranorex should automatically add the group's parent project as a reference in the receiving project, but it is not adding the reference.

Hi,

Ah OK, I think I got it. You are right that should not happen.
I will forward it to our development department. I contact you as soon as I get more information on that.

Thanks,
Robert
