Testing Crystal Reports

Post by rsriram » Thu Mar 08, 2012 10:33 am

Hi,

Will Ranorex support automation of Crystal Reports? Requirement is to verify and validate content in crystal report files (.rpt). Please let me know.

Thanks,
Sriram.

Hi,

We unfortunately have no experiences with Crystal Reports, but I would suggest downloading the free Ranorex version to check if the automation of these Reports works with Ranorex as expected.
Here is the link to the downlaod page.

Hi,

I checked with some sample Crystal reports and Ranorex does not identify any of the objects. :(

Hi,

Did you try to add it to the GDI Capture list as described in the following link: Automation of Legacy Applications with the GDI Capture Plug-In?
Can you also send us a Ranorex Snapshot file of the elements you want to track?
This will allow us to analyze the issue more detailed.
Following link will show you how to generate a snapshot file:
Creating Ranorex Snapshot Files
