Lesson 5 - Ranorex Recorder

The Ranorex Recorder is used to record and replay the user's keyboard and mouse actions during a manually executed test of the user interface. In addition the Recorder can validate current states, properties like 'Text' or 'Visibility' and compare images of UI elements. The Recorder is a capture replay editor which is available both as stand-alone tool and as an integrated editor within Ranorex Studio.
