Logging console errors(developer tools) in Ranorex

Post by Sanjay » Fri Jun 12, 2015 9:54 am

Hi there,

Within Ranorex is there a way in logging any console errors that you get in the developer tools (F12) of a browser?

Obviously object recognition would not be able to identify anything within dev tools.

Any help or views would be great.

Many Thanks,

I'm afraid, there is no built-in way to do what you want. You will have to create some custom code to extract console errors. Check for example this discussion...

I see no problem recognizing F12 console messages in IE, but I don't know about other browsers. I guess you may need to enable some browser-specific accessibility options?
