Adding an element in the middle of a repository

Post by anujakulkarni » Mon Feb 09, 2009 10:52 am


I have added several forms and several elements in those forms to the Globalrepository.Now I want to add another element(button) to a form(FormXYZ) and I am trying to do this using the "Element Browser" in ranorex Studio. FormXYZ is the third form in the list of forms displayed in the GlobalRepository.

The problem is that the element(button) is not getting added to FormXYZ but is always added to the last form in the list.

Is this a bug or am I missing something ?

The item is always added to the best-matching application folder which represents the form (e.g. the base path of the appfolder is a prefix of the item path visible in the spy/element browser)

If you think that this behavior is not correct please post a detailed example of what is going wrong.
