PDF report

Post by giuseppe.lacagnina » Thu Jun 16, 2016 3:27 pm

Dear All,

I am using the Ranorex.PDF library to get a PDF report at the end of the test.
I followed the instructions in

http://www.ranorex.com/blog/ranorex-rep ... onversion/

When I run the test case from the Studio, all is OK and I find my PDF report.
However, I need to call Ranorex from another application, which essentially is calling it
from the command line specifying the report format like:

/rf:<path_to_report>.html

in this case, the reports are there, but there is no PDF.
What am I doing wrong?

Thanks!

Hello giuseppe.lacagnina,

May I ask for the whole command line statement?

Thank you in advance.

Sincerely,
Robert

Hello Giuseppe,

Thank you for the information. Unfortunately, the "/tc" switch is currently not supported. The ReportToPDF converter needs an execution of the whole test suite.

Thank you for your understanding.

Sincerely,
Robert

You should be able to overcome this by using the run configurations instead of starting a specific test case.

Thanks!

Sounds cool, but might force me to do a lot of rewiring. I will have a look.

Cheers,

Giuseppe
