RanoreXPath

The purpose of RanoreXPath expressions is to uniquely identify UI elements in a desktop, web, or mobile application. Without RanoreXPath, Ranorex Studio couldn’t find the UI elements it’s supposed to perform actions on.

The RanoreXPath syntax is based on the XML description syntax XPath. The two are not the same, however.

The primary tool for working with RanoreXPath expressions is Ranorex Spy.
