Generate TestCase description runtime?

Post by MJesper » Tue Feb 05, 2019 2:39 pm

Hi, I'm wondering if it's possible to generate a TestCase description during runtime? The furthest I can come is to set the "description" value in the XML to what I want and then save it, but later in the ranorex report the information I added never showed up, but if I manually go to the test case the information I added is in the description. Later if I run another test, the description is in the Ranorex report aswell.

What I want is having my description show up in the first report log, not the second one.

As far as I know, there is currently no way to add/edit the TC description from code. We discussed something similar here:
You can create a feature request here: ... ve-ranorex
An existing feature request regarding better TC documentation can be found here: ... on-options
