Does Ranorex support Angular8

Post by SRSowmya » Fri Mar 13, 2020 12:58 pm

Our application is developed using Angular8 Framework. We are in process of evaluating the ranorex tool for UI Automation. Does Ranorex supports Anjgular8 framework controls?

Hi,

Ranorex does support Angular in general.
I would recommend just verifying if you can track elements with Ranorex Spy in your application and see if you're having issues.
If so, just let us know here in the forum :-)

We are using Ranorex 6.1 version.While spying, every control is identified as an element and a text under it.And the elements do not have any unique properties.We are trying to understand if Ranorex is not exposing the properties.When we checked with the developers using inspect element they have used few tags but while spying they are not exposed. Just to highlight,our application is developed in Angular 8 and not Angular JS.

Hi,

Ranorex 6.x is a long time dead horse ;) Please update to Ranorex 9.3 (or at very least 9.2.1) and try it again. You can try it even in trial mode. Seriously, your Ranorex version is too old and no longer supported.

We had tried with Ranorex 9.1 version also and still the structure displayed was the same.Every object was identified as an element and a text under it with elements having no unique properties.

Hi,

Well, the question is, if the elements in question have unique properties/attributes implemented? Could you please post a Ranorex snapshot (NOT screenshot) of the problematic page? Also, please show us an excerpt of the HTML code, showing the element and its attributes. Ideally, post a link to an example page. Thanks.
