Edit and Continue feature no longer available

Post by Cosmin » Mon Nov 11, 2013 3:38 pm

Hi,

In the previous versions of Ranorex (like 4.0) the Edit and Continue option was present, and very helpful, especially when I had to debug long tests with a lot of validations on them.
However, after upgrading to 4.1, I noticed that this option is no longer available, and I couldn't find any options in Ranorex to activate it.

My questions is, was this removed or there a hidden option somewhere that lets you activate it?
And is case it was removed, any chance in getting it back?

Note: Forum is not allowing me to post URLs, so in case something is unclear, this is what I'm talking about:
msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/vstudio/bcew296c(v=vs.100).aspx

Thanks,
Cosmin

Hello,

Unfortunately this is no longer possible in Ranorex.
We had some issues because of this feature and that's the reason that it is no longer allowed to edit the files while debugging.
All files are now set to read only in debug mode.
I hope this is not a too big problem for you.
Thank you for your understanding.

Regards,
Bernhard

Is this something you guys are working on getting functional again? I ask, because some of the tests I'm working on take several hours to complete, and if I have to debug a section of code near the end, the down time I experience getting to a point where the changes I've made in my code take place, to see if it works, is extensive.

Hi rezme,

We have changed it because of some side effects. Unfortunately I am not very confident that we will change it back.
If you want to request a feature in Ranorex please send and email to [email protected].

Bernhard
