Set Search Timeout popup disapear

Post by romainb25 » Mon May 09, 2016 2:38 pm

Hi community,

I have and issue with Ranorex Studio 5.4.6
I've create a new recording.
In this recording, i have 3 steps:
- run an software with an exe file
- assert : true if the main windows exists or fail if the main windows doesn't exists
- close software

This test pass.
I want to edit the search timeout, so i right-click on Assert and clic "Set Search Timeout"
During about 1 second the popup appear on the right and disapear immediatly.
I tried to disable assert, disable continue on fail, i have the same case.
Can you help me ?

I'm not quite sure what exactly is your problem? Could you please rephrase your question?

Anyway, the "Set Search Timeout" does not set the timeout of recorded action, if this is what you are looking for? Set Search Timeout sets the maximum amount of time Ranorex search for a given xpath element before it throws an exception. Please see this user guide chapter... ... rties.html

BTW, aside of Search Timeout, there is also something called Effective Timeout, which is a sum of all Search Timeouts for given repository item. Check for example this post about difference between Search and Effective Timeout... ... t8899.html
