Ranorex Automation looks at wrong app/device

Post by stapes » Tue Aug 09, 2016 10:03 am

I am running tests on an Ipad, but occasionally the test case fails because instead of looking on the device for a particular control, it looks on my PC. The little picture alongside the warning or fail message shows my PC window when it should be showing the Ipad window. Do I have to start every Recording Module with a RunMobileApp command to ensure it looks in the right place?

Hi Stapes,

Basically, Ranorex looks at the element, where the RxPath points to.
That means that this might be a RxPath problem.
In order to analyze your problem in more detail, would you please send an email to [email protected] with a detailed description of your intention.
Furthermore, please attach a snapshot of your application under test to this email.

I'm looking forward to your email.
