Play Video button is missing in the report

Post by a.s » Wed Mar 20, 2019 3:58 pm

Hi

since upgrading to Ranorex 9.0 we're recording videos of our failed testcases.
the videos are created in a subdirectory of the reports and can be played directly from there, so far everything seems ok

the only thing that I'm missing is the "Play video" button that's supposed to show up in the report (next to the failed testcase) to start the video playing right from within the report

we are using the standard report template (with only a few adaptions regarding background and logo) and we did this for 2 and a half years now - do we have to change something here or am I looking completely into the wrong direction

thanks for your help

Hi,

If the customized template you are using is from an older Ranorex version, then yes, you must update it with Ranorex 9.0 changes. Ranorex report template (and stylesheet) is regularly updated between versions. So you should occasionally check the changes and include them in your customized template (or add your changes to new template). The easiest approach is to create a new report template and compare new template files with your existing template files. Then simply merge differences. Hope this helps?

Thanks very much!
