How to send variable from one module to another

Post by GranPapi » Mon Aug 15, 2016 2:55 pm

Hey guys, I need a little bit of your knowledge :P

I'm working on a module that obtains the InnertText of a table row and stores it in a variable, and then I'd like to send that variable to another module, so it can use it to search for a file (already have the searching file module created), how can I do this?

Thanks in advance :)

Use a test case or global parameter. There is documentation on it in the user guide, which I would recommend reading fully as it contains information and examples on using Ranorex, including parameters and module variables.

Thanks for your reply, krstcs! I'm trying in creating a module with the "Get Value" action, but I don't understand quite a bit how this action works, do you know where can I find information regarding this action?

Thanks in advance :)
