Recording not working on Android emulator

Post by elser1001 » Sat Nov 02, 2013 1:51 am

This is what I did:
* Run instrumentation wizard to instrument and deploy the .apk file onto the emulator
* Started recording (in Ranorex Studio) which successfully started the app
* Then I interacted with the app in the emulator. However no action was recorded. When I clicked "play" button the app was started and then the play ended right there and I got a test pass successfully result.

Does anyone know why recording doesn't work? Am i missing something?

Hi,

Do you get any limitation warning? Would it be possible to post us a Ranorex Snapshot of your android application? Is Spy able to track elements?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the reply! To answer your quesitons:
* No, I didn't see any limitation warnings
* The snapshot file is attached
* Syp doesn't seem to recognize the elements within the emulator. Please refer to the snapshot for details.

PS, I did choose "mobile recording" type

Hi,

Thank you for the Snapshot.
Just a few other questions:
  • If you manually open the Ranorex Service on your Emulator, are there any instrumented apps inside this view?
  • If you start the mobile recording can you choose which application should be launched from Ranorex?
  • Did you follow our instructions for android testing?
