Hi,

Please use the Report.Setup method to specify an other location of your Ranorex log file as follows:

Code: Select all

string logFileName = @"C:\MyFolder\Logs\Test.rxlog";
Report.Setup(ReportLevel.Info, logFileName, true);
Unfortunately, there is a bug when you've opened Ranorex Studio during test execution causing an automatic move of the generated log file into the Ranorex standard Report folder.

We will fix this issue with the version.

kind regards,

Christoph,

Unfortunately, it didn't help me. I put the log file to an other Folder, but the test page is blank, again! What can I do?

As far as I understood from your last posts you're able to configure an external Ranorex Report file within a Ranorex Studio project. Am I right?

Did you try to open the generated file within Ranorex Studio or externally?

Could you please provide me with some of your code describing your steps like the following:

Code: Select all

Report.Setup(ReportLevel.Info, logFileName, true);
Report.Info("hello");
Report.End();
kind regards,

This is my code:

Dim logFileName As String = "C:\Logs\test_posta.rxlog"
m_xmld = New XmlDocument()
m_xmld.Load("C:\xmltest.xml")
m_nodelist = m_xmld.SelectNodes("/test/auto")
report.SystemSummary()
report.Setup(ReportLevel.Info, logFileName, true)
report.Screenshot()

You should call Report.Setup first or SystemSummary will not be saved in the file.

Code: Select all

report.Setup(ReportLevel.Info, logFileName, true)
report.SystemSummary()
report.Screenshot()
I cant`t reproduce your issue.
Which version of Ranorex 2.0 to you use?

I use the 2.0.0.5474 version. Now I put the Report.Info("category","message") line after each step, and so the report sheet is correct, but I think it's not the best solution.

And what do you think is a "better solution"? We are keen on getting to know what our customers think that we can do to enhance our product :-)

I think that a good test framework make an extended and complete log sheet, whitout I wrote code after each step. (Like mercury quick test pro)

I'm going to stand up for Ranorex on this one. Quite honestly I like the ability to log information, debug, warning, success and failure comments at any point I want to.
I've used other automation tools (Robot, RFT, QTP, etc...). I understand their ability to automatically add comments to the log, but sometimes it was not what I wanted. I would have to turn the logging feature off when I didn’t want those log comments. Now, with Ranorex, I have complete control over what gets into the log and what doesn't.
