Test Case description field is removed when editing data bindings

Post by Stub » Tue Jul 24, 2018 8:44 am

I've been restructuring my test project and started to notice my test description fields were becoming blank. I eventually determined that Ranorex Studio v8.2 is wiping the Description field whenever I edited the data bindings. I just reproduced this in a brand new project.
  • New project.
    Added a code module called "Parameterised" that takes a single parameter.
    Added this code module to my "TestCase".
    2x-click the Description field for "TestCase" and type in some text into the Description box on the General tab.
    Press OK. Text is shown in the Test Suite.
    2x-click the Data binding cell for the "Parameterised" code module and setup or edited a Parameter on the Data binding tab.
    Press OK on the Data binding tab => my Description has been removed by Ranorex Studio!
Looks like I have to press OK on the General tab to retain my Description, perhaps.

Hi Stub,

Thank you for reporting this issue!

This is currently a known issue and is already being analyzed by our development team. I do not have a workaround per se, but the general workflow to avoid this issue should be to set your data bindings and then add descriptions afterward. I do not have a timeline currently but as usual, I would recommend checking the release notes with each subsequent release of Ranorex: https://www.ranorex.com/release-notes/

I hope this helps and I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause!

Regards,

Jon

Saw this noted as fixed in Ranorex v8.2.1. Looks good here. Thanks!
