Text File Log File

Post by hjr » Wed Jun 25, 2014 12:52 pm

Hi,

I would like to know if it is possible to generate .txt log files using Ranorex 5?
I found the following information:
"The Ranorex Logger supports the following output formats:

Console text
Text file
XML file

The code: Logger.Initialize(true, "test.txt", "test.xml", LogLevel.Info); "

But this is only for Ranorex 1.x , so I was wondering if something similar was available for Ranorex 5.

Thank you in advance ;)

Hi hjr,

In order to generate a Report as .txt file you have to write your own ReportLogger.

Please have a look at the attached Sample Project.
This contains a textReporter class, which can be used to write the Reports into a txt file.

Please also have a look at the Program.cs file in this project, there you can see the changes I've made to use this textReporter.

regards,

Markus,

Don't know if you realized it but you created the solution with 5.1.0 instead of 5.0.3. :D

Are you teasing us?? :P


Other than that, very handy.

Hello Markus,

I have tried the code and it works fine. I still have a question : is there a way to append to the report, or is it always overwritten?

Thanks again!

Hi,

I am glad that I could help you :)

regarding the question how to append to the report:
You can use
System.IO.File.AppendAllText(filename,text);
instead of
System.IO.File.WriteAllText(filename,text);
in the End()-method of the textReporterclass.

@krstcs

I did not want to tease you, but as you may have noticed, the version was already released ;)

regards,
Markus (S)
