User Code Library and Exceptions

Post by HansSchl » Tue Sep 29, 2020 5:51 pm

Hi all,

I created a user code library which I only hand out in compiled form (*.dll and *.xml). Testers use this library to create test cases. This normally works fine.

The user code reports execution errors by throwing a RanorexException. This causes the test to fail, and the failure is recorded in the log.

The problem is: When the tester opens the log and hovers the failed step, it displays a link "Jump to item". When they click the link, an error message pops up with the test "Can't load file xxx.cs etc." where "xxx.cs" is the source code file where the custom action is implemented. This is great while developing that code, but a tester would prefer to jump to the step in the recording which triggered the custom action, as is the case for built-in actions.

Is that possible?

Thank you
Hans

(Ranorex version 9.3.1 under Win10 with all recent updates)

Hi,

I'm afraid, there is no workaround for this. But you can always make a feature request here:

Please add these details to your questions:
  • Ranorex Snapshot. Learn how to create one >here<
  • Ranorex xPath of problematic element(s)
  • Ranorex version
  • OS version
