Generating a log file

Post by 8samarth » Fri Jul 07, 2017 8:36 am

Hi,

I am fairly new to ranorex and am still in the evaluation phase of it.
I wanted to know that how do I generate a log file for all the tests that I am using to automate a file in an application?
A simple check file with pass and fail statistics.

Regards,
Samarth

Hi,

Ranorex already creates a 'log' during the test, it's called Ranorex report ;) But if you want something simpler, like a plain txt with list of success/failure scenarios, then no, there is no such functionality in Ranorex. You will have to cook something up if you need such log. The easiest way could be a code module placed in TearDown section of each test case, which will read the success/failure status of test case and eventually write it down (along with TC name) to a text file.
