Opening case sensitive web adress not possible with RxBrowser on iOS

Post by BlindJones » Mon Mar 08, 2021 7:17 am

Hi everyone,

I would like to test a solution on an iPad by using the installed RxBrowser.

The adress of the web application is case sensitive, like for example: https://z0.webapplication.com/TestVersion-Number1

RxBrowser always changes the adress to "https://z0.webapplication.com/testversion-number1" after I click on "Go", so I am not able to open that adress. Even as a set value from Ranorex Studio the adress is changed to small letters automatically.

Is there any solution to this? Can I configure RxBrowser to use case sensitive letters?

Disabling the auto correction on iOS did not help.

Thanks for the feedback.

Kind regards

It is really not best practice to use uppercase letters in website URLs. The reason is that if your website is on a Windows server, then www.website.com/about will be handled exactly the same as www.website.com/About. The Windows server is case insensitive. If your website is hosted on Linux, then those two addresses will be seen as two different pages. This means that one will return the correct page, and the other will return a 404 error. Also, on iOS, even the Safari browser converts all uppercase URL's to lowercase, the same as the RxBrowser.
