Code analysis tool in Ranorex IDE

Post by sergii » Wed Nov 23, 2016 2:42 am

Since recently we have integration with Nuget in the Ranorex 6.
What code quality, code coverage, and other tools have you been able to use natively in IDE?
I know that you can import project in the regular visual studio and after spending some time make it work there, but I want to use something that can be accomplished within Ranorex IDE itself.

Since Ranorex is built on top of SharpDevelop, I think the only currently available option for static code analysis is something called FxCop. You need to download and install this tool (I believe it's a part of .Net SDK package or check this link:, then set its path in Ranorex >> Tools >> Options >> Tools >> Code Analysis section. Then follow this post here to learn how to use it: ... 24806.aspx
