Is Ranorex supposed to...

Post by jtomaslobo » Wed Sep 08, 2010 5:41 am

Hello guys,

I've been asked to research on GUI automation tools for a software enterprise. They asked me to find a tool that could be able to:

- Record a mouse-keyboard sequence on ASPx and VB 6 screens, which will generate me some results that must be automatically checked
- Query data from a database or a notepad, so it can be used as input to obtain some screen output that also must be checked

Is Ranorex suitable for this job?

I would really appreciate your help.

Hi.

Yes it should be possible to solve all your requirements with Ranorex. At the moment for data driven testing you have to write some code. Therefore it would be an advantage to know the basics of programming. In the future release of Ranorex, Version 3.0, we will provide you an user interface to handle the data binding. With this user interface it is much more easier for the user to bind data to a Ranorex Project.

Please also download our 30-Day-Trial Version of Ranorex. In this trial you have the fully functionality of Ranorex.

Thanks Peter for the help.

Btw, and sorry my insistence, I've found this in "Multiple Technologies" section on the site:

Automate the testing of applications based on the following technologies:
.NET (C#, VB.NET)
WPF (XAML)
Win32
MFC
QT
Java (SWT)
Web technologies (AJAX, Javascript, Adobe Flash/Flex, Silverlight)
Embedded browser (i.e.: a CHM file)
LabVIEW Plug-In

Reading this list, are you sure that Visual Basic 6 is supported? I'm asking this, because, as you know, VB6 is the last *not* .NET VB version.

Thanks again

Hi,

Sorry for the late response. It's not the same support as for WinForms applications for example, but you should be able to automate VB 6 applications too. You can use the Image Based Automation of Ranorex. We are also currently writing a BLOG for a GDI Plug-In, where it should be possible to automate the VB6 applications with more "comfort". This experimental plug-in enables capturing text drawn through Win32 GDI functions. Captured text items are exposed through two new capabilities RawText ,RawTextBlock.
