Unattended execution

Post by omayer » Thu Sep 20, 2012 5:08 pm

Here is my scenario --ranroex 3.3.2, ie7
I have a console prompt to enter groupid which contains around 10 scenarios, after enterring the groupid in console prompt- function query the groupid and scenarioid in sqldb then execute the scenario and write the result like company id to result table in sqldb,
The problem i am running into when anything breaks on script either object not found or apps got hung up or bad data, the test execution got stoppe and i have to kickoff manually from the beginning,
Please advise how can i handle the error to continue the test execution with the next scenario and abondon the scenario that causing the error
- i do have a column on resulttable that track which scenario and which script ahs last finished

Hi,

as already mentioned in the mail, can you please provide us your test project, or a sample project which sketches the behavior of your original project?
Without this information it’s very hard for us to provide useful suggestions for you.
You can either attach the solution to your next forum post, or send it via mail.

Regards,
Tobias

Use try catch to catch any exceptions on one run, then clean up so that next run can be started (this is a tricky part as you don't know in what state your AUT was left, if you can just close AUT and open it again that's easier), run next scenario.

I was more sugesting to make a general try catch around whole scenario. This would catch all exceptions and then you can clean up and prepare for next scenario. Technically every line that manipulates Ranorex Adapters like Button.Click() can throw exception if that button is not found or something else happens. When writing our code we try to be reasonable: make sure form exists, by checking form or a button on the form for existance, then we assume that all other controls on this form exist also. But that sometimes leaves us with unhandled exceptions, which we catch in general try catch around whole test.
