Repository images save location

Post by SanMan » Mon Nov 05, 2018 8:17 am

Hi,

seems that I need to do a lot of image validation because Android app is done with old "XWalk" :(

.\RepositoryImages\ProjectX_Repository32c80887.rximgres

Is this the location and file where the validation screenshot's are saved?

Is it possible to open this file and see the saved images?

If this file get's deleted, I will be in big trouble, right?

As far as I know, this file can be accessed only via Ranorex repository editor. I mean, the images are only viewable there.

You should be OK as long as you are using a source control management system (like TFS, SVN, Git or similar), from which you can always get the last version of rximgres file. If you are not using anything like this yet, you should immediately stop what you are doing and adopt one! Source control system is a MUST for any developer, including test automation developers! ;)
