Hey irem!

Duration: Amount of time the recorded action takes for execution (delays within recording action)
Delay: A delay between recording actions. Used for e.g. waiting for dialog appearance

Hello Chris,

Thanks for your answer. I would like to ask new question about this issue. Is a problem setting duration time as 0ms ?

Best regards,
İrem.

Hello irem,

It depends on your application under test if it is a problem or not, if the duration is set to 0 Ranorex executes the step as fast as possible without a delay at the end of the action so if your app can handle it and there shouldn't be a problem.
Why are you asking, do you have any issues with it?
