validation failure

Post by ayat » Fri Jul 22, 2016 2:52 pm


The validation when recording does not work.
The highlighting of the element to validate is not done and also the actions of the scenario are not recorded.
I use Ranorex 6.0 on Windows 8 machine.

Thank you,

Without more information we are not going to be able to help you.

What EXACTLY isn't working?
What did you try?
Are you getting any errors?
What is the technology of your SUT? (Java, HTML, Flash/Flex, WPF, etc.)
Shortcuts usually aren't...

In fact I'm testing a windows web application (, silverlight)
I tried to validate the existence of an element at the end of my recording.

But the highlighting that activates usual validation to position the element is no longer done.

Also, sometimes the actions did not register even after the restarting of Ranorex.

Thank you for your reply,

Hi ayat,

Unfortunately it is hard to say what exactly is happening without seeing this problem. Therefore, I'd suggest having a short remote session, to analyze the problem directly on your machine.

To arrange a session, please get in touch with me by email ([email protected])
Thank you in advance.
