Hi,

This should be doable with properly set Test Suite Error Behavior. I guess "Continue with parent" or Continue with sibling should help?...

Ah sorry, I misunderstood your original post. In this case, I'm afraid, there is most probably no other way than to handle the Ranorex exception via code. You will have to convert entire recording module(s) into user code and enclose entire code in Try...Catch block and handle the exception in catch block.

But honestly, I would suggest not to use the above approach. You see, if Ranorex cannot find an element, then you should not pretend everything is OK and continue with the test as if nothing happens. This is really not a very good idea! You should either mark the test as failed or make sure Ranorex always finds the element (either by adapting the element's xpath or by reporting the problem to app developer, so they fix it).

hi
i solve this problem with putting my records in separate smart folder then if error happened in one of records the other records continue and at the end other test case also run without any problem with this i can check the whole test suite to run and if error happens all of records are continue till end
