On this page, you’ll find out how to track and identify single UI elements with the Track button from a recording module or repository file in Ranorex Studio.
In this chapter
To explain tracking with the Track button, we’ll use the Test database of the Ranorex Studio Demo Application.
The Test database tab in the demo application.
The test database working environment.
The Track button is available in different locations:
Start the demo application and click the Test database tab.
Start Ranorex Studio and create a new blank solution.
Open the default recording module and click the Track… button in the repository toolbar.
Ranorex Studio is minimized. In the demo application, mouse over the Female radio button and click it when the red frame surrounds it as below to track it.
Once the UI element has been tracked and identified, the tracking process ends and you’re returned to Ranorex Studio. There, you can see the created repository item of the UI element.
The repository contains the repository item RdbFemale. This repository item represents the Female radio button and is the result of the tracking process.
The RanoreXPath of the repository item. This path identifies the position of the UI element in the AUT’s UI.
F12 during the tracking process allows you to track the menu item Project Management from a drop-down list in the demo application.
