Ranorex support for DotNetBrowser (Chromium)

Post by PBMax » Fri Aug 09, 2019 12:10 pm

Does Ranorex support for DotNetBrowser (Chromium) https://www.teamdev.com/dotnetbrowser?

I've gotten development to add the settings mentioned on the support site for DotNetBrowser and I did get the application to spy objects twice but it has been inconsistent. It finds the main form as a WPF form but I don't think it sees the underlying browser as a Chromium browser. Is this a CEF browser? Not sure how the Ranorex code determines what technology to use to get at the objects and need some help determining the best way to either force Ranorex to use a specific technology or configure our browser to help Ranorex choose the right one.

Hello PBMax,

In general, CEF applications are supported by Ranorex, but this browser doesn't seem to act like other CEF applications. To enable CEF testing, the remote debugging port has to be enabled in the AUT. This doesn't seem to be the case. Our QA team will further analyze the issue and check if there is a way to provide a solution.
