How to check image file

Post by Thet Thet » Fri Jan 18, 2019 7:30 am

I started using the ranorex from this week. So I don't understand how can i check Expected Image and Actual Image are match or not.
The error message show "Screenshot of item does not match the specific image".
Thank you.

Since you are new to Ranorex, I would strongly recommend you to read Ranorex user guide. There is described all you need to know to achieve your goal. Check for example this chapter: ... n-example/
This chapter describes Ranorex image-based validation in details, using nice examples.

Generally speaking, image-based validation is recommended to use with small objects/pictures. The bigger the picture is, the bigger chance there will change something in validated picture. Could you please show us the picture you want to validate?
