Screenshot Questions...

Post by costamesakid » Wed Oct 24, 2012 5:49 am

1. Is there a way to enable Ranorex to take a screenshot on every Step in a recording instead of only Validation Steps? I can accomplish this with User Code, but was hoping there was a properties setting available?

2. Regardless of how Ranorex captures a screenshot is there a way to manipulate Ranorex to include the mouse cursor in the screenshot?

Thanks for the help.

Normally such tracing screenshots are just shown when a test step failed.
You can enable/disable "Capture Tracing Screenshots" in the global settings to enable or disable screenshots in case of an error.

There is a way to make a screenshot by using 'Add new action', 'Report', change 'Action name' to screenshot and drag the specific item from the repository to the action.

It is not possilbe to create screenshots including the mouse cursor with Ranorex.
But if you'd like to validate the actual mouse pointer have a look at following forum post:
