recorder's help

Post by jamiboo » Tue Jan 29, 2008 2:08 am

Mr/Mrs

I have a few more questions concerning the Ranorex Full version.
Even after several tests, recording, which I did with the ALT key, was still unsuccesful when replaying.
The use of the ALT key is listed among the commands, but it does not function (that is, it does not play it) at the replay. The use of this function is crucial for me, because i would like to record the following operation: there is given a 3D program, in wich I construct the model and I would like to rotate/turn it, which I can do by pressing and holding down the ALT key, then doing a left click on the mouse and while holding both (ALT key and the mouse’s left click) down, I move the mouse around, this way rotating the space. Is it possible to execute this function in Ranorex?
Also, is there a possibility in the full version of ranorex to make and save modifications in the program, so that after launching a test file once , it would launch multiple test files at the same time?
Or can I only do that with the outside C+ modifications?
Could you also please tell me when version 1.4 will be out?
Thank you for your help in advance,

Róber Barócsi

I just tried to record/replay the ALT key once again with Windows XP and Vista and had no problems with several applications. This might be an application specific problem.

The actions you described should be recordable/replayable by the recorder.
Just remember when moving the mouse that the recorder does not record the mouse move directly, but only when a mouse button is pressed and when it is released again. When replaying, the recorder will move the mouse directly from one click to the next. So if you want to record a curvy mouse move, you have to click several times when moving the mouse.
Another option is to use the MouseMove method from the Ranorex library directly in code.

Modifications to the generated XML and code files can currently only be done by hand. However, you can easily start several test files after another by using a shell script. If you pass the name of a test file as argument to the RanorexRecorder.exe on a command line, the specified test file will be replayed. E.g.

Code: Select all

C:\PathoToRanorex\Bin\RanorexRecorder.exe testFile.xml
will start replaying the actions saved in "testFile.xml".

Ranorex version 1.4 is anticipated for March 2008.
