Steps for successful recording
Ranorex Studio supports a wide range of environments, test specifications, and technical settings. So that your first recording is a success regardless of your environment, we recommend the following:
While recording, use only the mouse for navigation
Click every step
Close other applications
Open the user guide on another machine
Click pause/continue in the recorder
Set display scaling to 100 %
Record the test
In Ranorex Studio, make sure you’re in the recording module view of Recording1.rxrec.

Validate a UI element
We can see that Harry has appeared in the welcome message. Now we’ll add a validation so that Ranorex Studio verifies this during testing.
The Validation settings window opens. Here, you can select which attributes to validate. In our case, Text is correctly preselected. Click OK to confirm and switch back to recording mode.
Stop the recording
