Resolution issues

Post by davef » Wed Feb 08, 2017 6:37 pm

I am having issues with missing clicks and receiving errors such as outside of visible area. I know I did my coding on my machine at 1920x1080 and the other machine I am running on is 1280x1024. Is there a quick fix for this or do I just need to change my screen resolution and redo the parts that do not work?

I'm afraid, it's too hard to suggest something reliable without seeing your solution and actual error you are getting. The easiest thing you might try is to uncheck this option in Ranorex settings:
mouse.png (9.55 KiB) Viewed 1770 times
This should prevent Ranorex from throwing an exception if mouse-based action is performed outside the visible desktop area.

If your tests are using coordinate or image-based actions, then I'm afraid, you will most probably have to rework your tests. Or simply start using the same resolution as the tests were designed with.
