No .rxtst file in second project

Post by etienne » Thu May 19, 2016 9:40 am

I have a question about .rxtst "Test Suite" files.
The documentation says that one is automatically created when you create a new project. But this does not appear to be true. When I create a new project there is no .rxtst file.

Only the project that is automatically created when you create a new Solution gets a .rxtst file :evil: .
Why ??? :?:

If I can have only one test suite in the whole solution, what is the use of having multiple projects in a solution? It does not make sense to me...

Thanks,
Etienne

The default project when adding a new project to an existing solution is a Ranorex Test LIBRARY, which will not have a *.rxtst suite file in it.

You have to choose the right type of project if you want to get the suite file. On the left hand side of the New Project dialog, you need to select the C# folder and then the Ranorex Test Suite project type in the right pane.
Shortcuts usually aren't...

Ok... I have to go up the tree, go to the 'C#' node, not 'Module' or 'Advanced'.
This is a bit non-intuitive... I did not expect the C# node to contain anything but the two child-nodes.

Thanks, problem solved.
