Speed issue

Post by Sofi » Fri Mar 07, 2014 3:30 pm


When I saw the features of this new version 5.0 is offering, so I finally decided to give it a go and write some automated tests for our mobile application. So I recorded a short test, but unfortunately I found that Ranorex is having a hard time finding objects when I run the playback of the test. Actually it took about 13 seconds to find a button, which never happened when I ran recordings of web based application.I tried to tweak the Xpath of the object, but it didn’t affect the performance at all. I am running an IOS 7 app on an IPad against Ranorex 5.
If you need any further information in order to get to the bottom of this problem, feel free to ask.

Best regards,

PS. I tried to submit this by email, but it was rejected as spam :)

Hello Sofi,

Unfortunately we are not aware of any performance issues within Ranorex 5.0 IOS testing.
Is it possible to provide a Ranorex snapshot as well as the RxPath of your button to us?
If yes, please upload the data files to the forum or send it to: [email protected]

Information on how to create a Ranorex snapshot can be found here:
