Can I convert a module library to a test suite

Post by tomisphere » Mon Nov 30, 2015 6:11 pm

Being fairly new to Ranorex, I chose the wrong solution type for my latest test suite solution. I chose "Ranorex Test Suite Module Library" when I should have chosen "Ranorex VB.Net Test Suite". I didn't realize that there was no test suite file (.rxtst) until after I'd already created a big repository and a couple of involved recording modules.

I'd like to get this to where it's a test suite. I can imagine two general approaches I might take:

1. Make some modifications to the existing solution so that it becomes a Ranorex Test Suite.

2. Make a new test suite solution and move content into it from the other module library solution.

The problem is that I'm supposing there are some non-obvious steps in either approach. What would be the best way to go about this, and how would I actually do that?

Thanks,
Tom McIntyre

Hi Tom,

Please follow the steps below to merge the Solutions:

1) Create a new Ranorex Test Suite Project.
2) Add the existing items (e.g. Recording Modules) to the project.

3) After choosing the file, you will be asked if you want to copy or link the repository.
In your case you could copy the repository to the new solution.
repository_project_reference.png
repository_project_reference.png (17.15 KiB) Viewed 559 times
After that, you should be able to add the corresponding modules to the Ranorex Test Suite and to execute the test.

Please let me know if you need more information.

Regards,
Johannes
