Ranorex from Elipse and Python

Post by May » Fri Jan 28, 2011 9:42 am

Hello.
I´ve recently started working with Ranorex 2.3 and I have a question. Is it possible to work with Ranorex from Eclipse 3.6.(last version) and Python 2.7 ?
I´ve already tried to work with both tree together, but it´s not possible, for example, to use <CTRL><space> with Python in Ranorex or in Eclipse in order to get the autocompletion.

Thank you very much.

Hello May,

Ranorex is based on the .NET framework. You should be able to reference the Assemblies in the Eclipse .NET extension or if you use IronPython from Eclipse PyDev.

Shortcuts like <CTRL><space> are Ranorex Studio specific. Eclipse and its plugins have their own shortcuts.

In Ranorex 3.0 we will drop IronPython support, which means that
- the project templates will be gone
- no automatic ironpython code generation
- no IronPython will be shipped with 3.0

But you can still use Ranorex modules as .NET assemblies from within a external IronPython instance.

Regards,
Roland
