Creating a Ranorex snapshot

A Ranorex Snapshot is a file representation of the user interface (UI) structure of an application under test (AUT) at a particular point in time. A Ranorex Snapshot captures all interface elements, their hierarchy, values, etc.

It can be saved as a single file. A Ranorex Snapshot file can be created and viewed with Ranorex Spy. The file extension is .rxsnp.

Typically, Ranorex Snapshots are used to share detailed information about the UI of an application with the Ranorex support and technical sales team.
