How to validate text in a log file

Post by bertrobb » Thu Jul 27, 2017 5:24 pm

Is there a quick and easy way to validate a text string in a log file without calling out the editor, open the file, find the string, then close the file?

Hi bertrobb,

Since Ranorex is based on the .NET framework you can easily implement such a use case.

First, please create a user code action which allows you to implement your custom code.

In order to read text directly from a file, you will need to use the corresponding methods from the .NET framework, for example: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet ... -text-file

After that, you can validate the string value by using the Validate-class from the Ranorex API.

I hope that helps.
