Interrupting test automation

Post by Ralf » Thu May 10, 2012 10:44 am

Hi Again,

I do an automated test for a quite big software, so I turned Ranorex quite fast. Because of problems, that some acions do not work always, I inserted a loop for every action (e.g. Selection in a ComboBox) that tries to to it 100 times, before it cancels the test. My test software has no form or dialog.

So it is quite hard for me to interrupt my test sequence, because in every action of my test automation Ranorex will take control of my mouse.

So did anyone already implement something like an cancel routine for his test automation software?
For example, it runs until its finished, has an error or I press the "F12" key on the keyboard?

Thanks for your help

I think there's an abort button you can set. I just struggle with Ranorex over the mouse and close console in which it's running :D

Hopefully I'm not misunderstanding your question - but to abort during runtime you can just press the "Pause" button on your keyboard :)
