Move recordings

Post by solovengo » Sun Jan 29, 2012 1:04 am

Is it possible to move a single recording from one solution to a solution in another location? If so, what files should be copied along with the .rxrec file? And after copying the file(s) to the new location, is the correct procedure to use "Add Existing Item" in the Project View?

If you want to move a recording files, move the following files:
- YourFile.rxrec
- YourFile.cs
- YourFile.UserCode.cs

If you didn't use UserCode within this Module, it will be enough just to move the rxrec file, because the cs file will be generated by the recorder based on the rxrec file.

Keep in mind that each recording action is performed on a repository item. If you want to move your repository as well, move the rxrep file and import it too.
There is also the possibility to embed the repository to the recording. In this case, the repository will be integrated to the rxrec file.

The correct procedure to add the recording to your project is, as you wrote above, via Add Existing Item.
