    Causing a test failure


    Test failures are part of testing. Let’s produce one in a controlled environment to see what they look like in Ranorex Studio.

    Return to the recording view by selecting the register tab
    Changing to Recorder view

    Changing to Recorder view

     Simply cause the test to fail due to a wrong ‘user’ input:

    Select action #3 and directly change the text input to Sally

    Manual change of text input

    Manual change of text input

     Change to test suite view again and start the test run

    Finally, you receive a failure test report

    •  The report states that the current welcome message ‘Welcome, Sally!’ does not match the reference text ‘Welcome, Harry!
    • Therefore, the test validation has failed and the test was aborted
