Writing own Code Module Templates

Post by rneuber1 » Wed Jul 04, 2012 2:21 pm

When adding a new code module, the template from C:\Program Files (x86)\Ranorex 3.3\RanorexStudio\AddIns\AddIns\Misc\RxSharpdevelop\Templates\Files\CSharp\UserCodeModule.xft
is used.
I tried to clone this file and create my own template but it does not appear in the Ranorex Studio IDE.

Is there a way for such an approach, i.e. can I use my own templates?

Hello Ralf,

If you want to use your own template you have to delete or to rename the original template.
Then you have to save your template into the directory C:\Program Files (x86)\Ranorex 3.3\RanorexStudio\AddIns\AddIns\Misc\RxSharpdevelop\Templates\Files\CSharp.
The name of your template must be the same as the name the original Ranorex template (UserCodeModule.xft).

So there is no way of having multiple templates?
What is the dialog showing "Categories" and "Templates" good for?

Hello Ralf,

Insert your templates in addition into the CSharp directory.
Restart Ranorex after that and use Add -> New Item on your project to select the template you added.
