The application is opened and kept always on top

Post by YAMI » Tue Jan 12, 2016 2:21 pm

Hello!

Our company wants to work with Ranorex (now we have the trial version), but we have a problem.
When we are performing an action "run application" in Ranorex, the application is opened and kept always on top. That is all other windows that are opened after rest behind the main window.
So we need to minimize the main window to continue the tests.
However if we are recording the double click on the application shortcut on the desktop, the application is opened in a normal mode.
Attached you will find a short video demonstrating the issue.

Thank you!

Hello YAMI,

Please open the property grid of the Run Application action and check if the Run Maximized property is set to False.

If you need to bring a Window to the foreground, you could try using the EnsureVisible action.
Please drag and drop the form item from the repository to the action table and choose the corresponding action.
