Support for C#6.0

Post by sergii » Mon Jan 23, 2017 10:49 pm

I'm trying to use interpolation of strings in the following code:

Code: Select all

int age = 5;
string greeting = $"You are {age} years old";
Not sure if the current version of SharpDevelop allows us to compile project with 4.6+ framework and/or C# 6.0+
At least in my Project > Properties > Compiling I see only 4.5.2 and 5.0 as the maximum I can go on Ranorex Studio 6.1.0

Based on the SharpDevelop website they
don't seems to have any strict dependence on framework version.

Does it mean that I can somehow install newer .net framework on my machine and point Ranorex Studio to the location of framework?

I'm afraid, it's not currently possible. See this SharpDevelop forum post: ... aspx#56998

So, since there seems to be no further development going on for SharpDevelop (the latest release is older than one year and the post you linked mentions that SharpDevelop is dead), does this mean there won't be support for .NET 6 and higher in Ranorex?

Hello csr,

There is already a feature request available for this topic on our UserVoice. If you want to see this feature in Ranorex I would recommend voting for this feature.

The title of this UserVoice entry is "Support for C#6 and 7 language version".

Best regards,
