How to ... Add variables on Local Variables Panel OR Watch variables value on Watch Panel?

Post by Vanderson » Mon May 18, 2020 11:11 am

Hello Guys,

My question: How to use Local variables panel? How to add variables on that panel? I'm using Ranorex 9.2.1, Win 10 PRO but I don't know how to add variables on this panel.

I would like to mention that I not using code, only recording actions. But in my record actions, I use variables and I need to inspect then.

I can't found this information on user guide.

Thanks for helpping!

Hi,

I'm afraid, it's not possible to see values in Local Variables tab without setting breakpoint in code. Here is what you need to do:
- Go to the recording of your choice, select a recording action, riught click on it and in the appeared context menu select "View Code".
- Then in the appeared code, set the breakpoint to selected action or any line on which you want to pause the code.
- Then you must switch solution to debug mode (clicking "bug" icon in toolbar).
Now if you run the solution, it should pause at breakpoint and only then you can examine values in Local Variables tab.

Hello odklizec,
Thanks for your help!

I turned on the breakpoints and the debug (see pictures attached), but the breakpoints don't stop the record. What I missing?
