Code worked great for me..

but in one case we seemed to have hit the disable not the cancel. Is there a way to programically detect that Chrome has the Ranorex plug in and it's active?

Hello JayInMA,

You could check if the Ranorex Plug-in button exists.

Button ranorexAutomation = "/form[@sample='sample']//button[@accessiblerole='PushButton']";
Validate.Exists(ranorexAutomation);

The chrome website

http://www.chromium.org/developers/exte ... oyment-faq

states "If your extensions are currently hosted outside the Chrome Web Store you should migrate them to the Chrome Web Store as soon as possible. The above changes are already effective on Chrome 33 Beta for Windows and will be effective on Chrome 33 stable for Windows (around end of Feb 2014). Once you migrate your extensions to the Chrome Web Store, there will be no impact to your users, who will still be able to use your extension as if nothing changed. And if you have a dedicated installation flow from your own website, you can make use of the existing inline installs feature. If you’re migrating your extensions to the Chrome Web Store, start testing with Chrome 33 right away."

By any chance, is Ranorex working on getting the Ranorex extension into the Chrome Web Store?

Short answer: Yes, they are working on a solution.


Long answer: It isn't as simple as just putting the old Chrome extension in the store. The old extension has executable code in it, which is not allowed in the Chrome web store. They would have to re-work the extension (and probably Ranorex) to make it all work and be "legal" for the store.

Having said that, Ranorex is working on it and it looks pretty good (I've had the pleasure of messing with it a bit :D ), but there is still some work to be done. I can't say more, and will let the Ranorex team chime in if they can.
Shortcuts usually aren't...

Hi,

As krstcs already wrote we are working on that and the plugin will be available on the Chrome Web Store.

have you tried to remove the extension and then reinstalling it? it worked for me.

the extension crx file is inside ranorex installation folder, simply drag inside the chrome's extension tab and reboot it.


hope it works for you.

Hello all,

I am pleased to inform you that in Ranorex 5.1 the Ranorex Chrome Extension can now be added and updated from the Chrome Web Store directly.
That means that the message box "Disable developer mode extensions" will no longer be shown if the extension is added via the web store.
A list of all new features and bug fixes can be found on our Release Notes page.

Regards,
Bernhard
