Export the file and then open it up in another application

Post by rsudhak » Fri May 29, 2020 5:22 pm

Hi All,

I have a scenario wherein I have to export to another application and open upon the file and check whether it's correctly loaded, is it possible through Ranorex?

Thanks,
Rajee

Hi,

I’m afraid, it’s impossible to suggest something definite without knowing more details about your problem. Ideally, post step by step instructions from the test case you want to automate. I don’t know what you mean by “export to another application”, which, I assume, requires some interaction with the app UI. And as for opening file in another app, you should be able to achieve this by Run application command and then you can validate what you need with Validate method/action. But again, it’s impossible to provide more detailed steps, without knowing more details about the scenario you want to automate.

example:
In my aut1 , I have a functionality called Export to aut 2, which when used the file is generated and opened in aut 2..... I want to check whether on aut-2 the file opens up correctly, this is what the scenario is.

Thank,
Rajee

Hi,

So, what's the problem with implementation of such test? Have you tried to record all steps and then split them into individual recording/code modules? I'm afraid, I don't know how to tell the aut2 opens correctly, so I assume there is a way to tell if the file is loaded correctly (e.g. from name of file in window title or from anywhere else in the aut2 UI)?
