Ranorex report to pdf conversion blog

Post by sstowe » Thu Aug 23, 2018 5:57 pm

Steps to be done for on the fly conversion says

"irst of all, you need to reference the Ranorex.PDF.dll within our Ranorex project.
This can be done by opening the “Add Reference”-dialog (References -> Add Reference) and adding the DLL."

It then does not say where to find the reference. It is not listed in the GAC list...I just upgraded to 9.2.1 with no change in behavior. Thanks

Hi,

From your post, I understand that you want to convert the report at the end of test? In this case, it’s better to use newer Ranorex automation helpers approach, which already contains the pdf conversion library.
Read about Ranorex automation helpers here:
https://www.ranorex.com/blog/ranorex-au ... n-helpers/

For the steps described in the original pdf conversion blog post, the dll must be downloaded manually and added to the project. A detailed description of the conversion process is shown in this video...

  • Ranorex version

  • HW configuration

I am not seeing any help specific to the ReporttoPDFModule parameters. Can you share that link, please? Thank you.

please find a short video on how to create the parameter binding for the ReportToPDF functionality here: Loom

The possible parameter values can be found here: Conversion Blog
