FEATURE REQUEST: Layouts remember last setting

Post by krstcs » Tue Sep 03, 2013 4:49 pm

Would love to see the layouts (column width, sort order, expanded/collapsed, etc) for RXTST, RXREC, RXREP and RXTMG save the last settings that were used.

For example, when I change column widths in the RXTST, if I close and open the file, it loses the widths I just set. Some of my names are long and when you start adding in the tree structure, it can push the names out of view behind the next column, so I have to go in every time I open the file and change the column widths.

It would be nice if these changes were carried over.

You could save it in the XML of the file, but that would cause re-compile issues, and would carry over to other systems.

Maybe more appropriate would be a layout settings XML-based file where each RX file could have settings for these types of things?

Hello,

Which Ranorex version do you use?
We have improved the layout in our current version (4.1.0).

The column width should be stored in Recording and Repository but not in Test Suite view.
I will forward your feature request internally to discuss a possibly future implementation.
Thank you.

Regards,
Markus (T)

I am using 4.1.0.

Yeah, I hadn't noticed the others, the RXTST is the big one right now.

Thanks!

I just want to add to the request: when I set Debug layout in drop-down, then debug and run a piece of code, analyze report and get back to Rx suite, - I have to change from Default to Debug layout again each time (I work a lot with action properties).
Can this layout setting be saved, let's say, for current Rx session?

Thanks,
Alena.

Hello Support,

Has there been any further update on this enhancement as this is very inconvenient everytime I open Ranorex Test Suite. Especially as I have to open multiple time a day as the data sheets do not auto load when changed while Ranorex is open.

Default column widths, remembering last settings would be the better option but a default value stored somewhere would still work ok.

Thanks,
Neil

Hi Neil,

This feature is planned to be released in one of our next versions, but unfortunately I cannot give you a time frame.
We will inform our customers by mail and in this forum when a new version is released.

Hello,

I didn't know if I should open a new thread, so I push this one.

I reorganize my code tabs in a special order, but when restarting the Studio or using SVN they disappear and have the wrong order when opened again.

Could the sort order be saved as well? It would help to navigate faster.

Thanks so far.

Kind regards
Using Ranorex Studio 8.0.1
