Does ranorex support iframes

Post by Shreyanka K.R » Thu Jan 12, 2017 2:03 pm


I am working on an application with iframes. But the recorded script on ranorex fails.
Is there any solution to this?

In general I would say yes - may depend also from your browser and the Ranorex Browser extension.
For a first impression use Spy!

Anyway, please follow the guidelines before you post: ... -t871.html

Escpecially for web:
OS, browser and version info as well as Ranorex version info is a must!

Aside to Speedboat's suggestions, please post an exact error you are getting, an example of the failing xpath and mainly, a Ranorex snapshot (not screenshot) of the element in question. Without these additional details, there is almost nothing anyone here can do or suggest ;)

  • Ranorex xPath of problematic element(s)
  • Ranorex version
  • OS version
  • HW configuration
