Post by sincoew » Tue Mar 12, 2013 9:53 am

Hi Ranorex,

The iOS(iPhone) can use USB to Test?
(I know android can use USB to test, but I not found introduce on iOS use USB )
Because via Wi-Fi is unstable.

Thanks a lot.

Hello,

Unfortunately it is not possible to use USB in order to test iOS apps at the moment, but this feature is planned for one of our next releases.

Hi Bernhard,

Thanks you for your reply.

I have new question on below.

1. Can I ask what time we can get usb test version on iOS?
2. On iOS Device, some element via Spy++ search is too slow, is exist another way to increase get element speed?
( I need get some element text value, but spend too much time to get XPath and element value, and I use Record method can't get value)

Thanks you for your help.

Best Regards,
Robert Chen.

Hello,

We are working on a solution in order to add an iOS device at the moment. We are planning to add this feature for our next minor version.
Regarding your second question, I am not sure what the problem is. Is Ranorex Spy too slow to provide the RanoreXPath to the specific element? I am afraid that it is not possible to speed up Ranorex Spy.

Bernhard

Hello,

Unfortunately the date for the release of Ranorex 4.1 is not fixed at the moment. We are working on a bug fix release which will be released before 4.1. Sorry, but I am not able to give you a date for the release of Ranorex 4.1.

Regards,
Bernhard
