Issue with Ranorex - Nexus 4 device - Go/Enter/Return key

Post by yesubabu » Sat Sep 17, 2016 2:36 pm

Hi Team,

We are interested in purchasing the Ranorex tool and we are in the process of exploring the Ranorex trial version.
As part of it, i have followed the process mentioned in your Youtube video's and tried to record the script for the below scenario.

We tried to record the Amazon shopping app using the nexus 4 mobile device, as you people mentioned in the video's.
I just searched for the keyword "Software test automation" and clicked on the -> (Go/Enter/Return key) icon to veiw the results.
But we could not be able to see any entry for the ->(Go/Enter) action button in the Actions pane of Ranorex studio. Due to this we could not be able to see the search results and could not be able to proceed further.

We request you to let us know the reason for this issue and provide the solution for this issue ASAP, so that we will complete the tool evaluation process to purchase the licensed version.

Regards,
Yesubabu Sirra,

Hi Yesubabu,

I guess you are looking for the "Mobile Key Press"-actions()

These actions are available within mobile recordings. Simply open a recording and check the "Recorder UI Mode":

Hi Robinhood,

Thanks for your reply!

I am facing another issue with running the test case in Nexus 4 device. Script execution is consuming more time for my mobile app testing.
When clicking on the the app related buttons/images, script execution is taking time but while filling the form fields it is taking very less time.

Could you please suggest me how to improve the execution speed in mobile app testing.

Thanks & Regards,
Yesubabu

Hi Yesubabu,

Basically, the RxPath is the most important part when it comes to execution speed. For myself, I always try to be as specific as possible, but as dynamic as necessary.

It is always a trade-off, the more specific the layers within the path is defined the faster the search will get, but you might have issues whenever there are changes to the UI. :)

I hope this helps.

Cheers,
Robin
