Duplicate linked repository's code file

Post by dmitry.abramov » Mon Feb 16, 2015 8:54 am

Hi,

In one of my project I link repository from another project (both projects in the one solution).

Code: Select all

Solution
-ProjectA
--RepositoryB.rxrep //linked from ProjectB
---RepositoryB.cs // replica from ProjectB
---RepositoryB.rximg //linked from ProjectB
-ProjectB
--RepositoryB.rxrep
---RepositoryB.cs
---RepositoryB.rximg
I noticed that Ranorex Studio for linked repository add to project .rxrep and .rximg files as link. But repository .cs file is copied. So I have absolutely identically files in two folders.

Code: Select all

SolutionFolder
-ProjectAFolder
--RepositoryB.cs //replica from ProjectBFolde
-ProjectBFolder
--RepositoryB.rxrep
--RepositoryB.cs
--RepositoryB.rximg
In my opinion it is strange behavior to link one files and copy others. Especially it is not comfortable to merge absolutely identical files few times.
Maybe it is not a bug but it is point to improvement.

Thanks,
Dmitry

Hi Dmitry,

Thank you for reporting this behavior. I’ve already contacted our responsible department. One of my colleagues will analyze the problem in more detail.

Hi Dmitry,

Unfortunately it is not possible to change this behavior since the code file is not copied but generated in the second project so no DLL reference is required.

Thank you for your understanding.
