Show Progress Dialog window not visible after upgrade to 5.4

Post by [email protected] » Fri Jul 10, 2015 11:03 am

After Ranorex upgrade to 5.4, I observed that Show Progress Dialog window not visible :( due to which it is quite difficult to identify execution steps/module at runtime. Let me know if any option is available to enable it again.

Hi,

You can re-enable the progress dialog via Test Suite properties...

Just select TestSuite root element and set Show Progress Dialog property to "true". Eventually, right click Test Suite root item, and from the appeared context menu select "Properties" and enable Show Progress Dialog check, found at General tab.

Thanks odklizec,

That's resolved my issue for now. However not able to understand why it is set to False by default after upgrade to 5.4

I don't know about the reason of the change? It may be just a side effect (unwanted) of changes in 5.4?

Hello,

after updating to Ranorex 5.4 it could happen that per default the option 'Show Progress Dialog' is disabled. If this is the case, please enable the option in your test suite properties.

We are currently analyzing the issue.

@[email protected]: It would be helpful if you could tell us which version you had before updating Ranorex.

Thank you in advance.

Regards,
Johannes

Hello,

I had the same issue coming from Ranorex 5.3.2. but even though I ticked the option several times the setting is sometimes lost. It seems to change then I switch from Debug to Release or back.

Hope this helps,
Thomas

Hello,

I noticed the check disappeared when a test failed or was aborted: not each time but about every second time.
A lot of our test fails since the update on version 5.4.0 because of a known issue and have to be revised.

Hope this helps.
Regards,
Thomas

Hello,

we are currently working on a solution for the issue.

Meanwhile, we can offer a workaround. Please add the attached code module to the setup-region of your Test Suite. In this way the progress dialog is shown in any case.

The Code Module includes the following method call:

Code: Select all

Ranorex.Controls.ProgressForm.Show();
ShowProgressDialog.cs
