Ranorex fills data on other language

Post by gridle » Thu Mar 20, 2014 11:33 am

So, again, I have simple test which opens browser with needed url and fills some field with, for example, "qwerty". I run my tests in firefox. Also I have one instance of ff which is always opened (search there needed info). And I have two installed languages in my Windows (Belarusian and English).
Okay, here we go:
I go to my instance of ff, which is always opened, switch to Belarusian language and search what I need.
Then I start my test. New instance of ff is opened. So as before I worked in ff with Belarussian language, new ff has the same language. Test try to fill field with "qwerty" but it enters "йцукен" - it are the same symbols like "qwerty" but on Belarusian keyboard (hope picture below will help you to understand it better)

So question is: whether it is issue or not?

since Ranorex uses the same global language settings as you, this works as intended. BUT: you can change the language of OS to the desired language in C#.

I did not try this, but searching google I found some links about SetLocaleInfo method:
