RXIMG files

Post by ianhoare » Tue Jan 13, 2015 11:23 am


I'm looking for an easy way to check image files. Currently I'm thinking I'd like to use RXIMG files, but can't find a way to view them, other than in Ranorex.

The reason I want to view them externally is so that I can sort by RXIMG and date so that I can see whether the results I am expecting materialise, in an easy way, rather than trawling thru all tests, if you see what I mean. Unless there's a better way, of course!

The context is : navigate to screen, check screen is present, continue with scripts.

I hope this makes sense! Many thanks, Ian.

Is there a reason that you cannot validate the screen using RanoreXPath objects? Image validation is very brittle and prone to breaking. It is much easier to use repository objects or straight XPath values and validate that they exist or that a certain attribute is equal to a given value.
