Running tests in silent mode

Post by Munro89 » Wed Mar 10, 2010 3:41 pm

I would like to know if there is a way to run tests in silent mode within Ranorex.

By default, with a recording, the mouse and keyboard is used until the test is completed. Many testing tools offer a way to send an event to the control you want to test (such as an event click). This way, running tests and doing something else while they run is possible.

Can it be done with Ranorex?

With the Recorder it's not possible to record an action and play this in silent mode. Partially it is possible to code such actions, for example, setting text to a textbox or selecting a dropdown item of a website. You can also try to use the Button.Press() method, but this might not be reliable for all technologies, since this heavily depends on the implementation of the control you automate.
