I wonder, what is the difference between the rooted folder and a simple folder in Ranorex repository?
As far as I can see,
- the icon color is different
- a base path can be set for the rooted folder, but not for the simple folder
I have organized my repo in several rooted folders just to keep the paths short for the repo items.
Then I found the simple folders and thought, that would be a good idea for organizing stuff inside these rooted folders to tidy up a bit.
My repo is organized like this:
What I was expecting (maybe also because of the grey color of the simple folders icon) is that
- rooted folder (with basepath)
- simple folder 1 (for grouping)
- simple folder 2 (for grouping)
the simple folders do not show up in reports or output when executing a test.
But they do - just like the rooted folders.
So my test execution is reading
but I would have expected it to readSearching item1 in simple folder 1
But thats not the case, simple folders are displayed just like rooted folders,Searching item1 in rooted folder
so I don't get the point what's the purpose of simple folders - may you please enlighten me?
