Bug in RX, it automatically deletes created variables.

Post by varun » Thu Oct 18, 2012 7:59 am

Hi Support,

1. I recorded test case having approx. 30 fields, out of which variables are created for 30-25 fields.
2. I bind datasource(excel) with these fields and later convert many of such steps to User Code(to customize it). To verify the build status, I verified by pressing F8 key. No error appear at this stage.
3. For a step, I change its duration from 0ms to 2000ms.
4. As I clicked on Run link of Module Browser, it fails the build and shows 11 errors. I undo the duration time but still errors exists(RX_Bug_UnboundErrors.png).

Later it was observed that, RX deletes some of variables for which steps are converted to User Code and unbound there related columns(See attached RX_Bug_Unbound.png).
Now I am afraid how to get back those variables, I don't want to re-do all recording.

Please look & report this RX Bug and also let me know How to get my Variables back as they were earlier.

Thanks & regards,

Which Ranorex version are you using?
How and where did you use the module variables in the recording?
Can you reproduce the behavior with a new test recording?
If yes, can you send us the steps which led to this behavior?
