Code generation overwrites changed code without warning

Post by darkness » Mon Dec 22, 2008 9:40 am

Ranorex Studio Version :

I'm not sure, whether it is an intended feature...

I record a test
I use 'play' button to have the source code generated
I make some changes to the source code to use parameters with the test
When I now push the 'play' button again the changes to the code are all thrown away without even asking me.

It would be cool if Ranorex was aware of changes to the code being made and display a warning.

It would be even cooler if Ranorex was aware of the changes and would, if required, only change parts of the repository and recording code that have not been manipulated by the programmer. (This would require the option to overwrite it all just in case the programmer has messed up everything :) )

That's it for this year. Have a nice x-mas period and a happy new year

Thanks for your suggestion.

We are already planning some improvements with the handling of changes in the generated source code of the Ranorex Recorder.

Have a nice Christmas and a happy New Year!
