UiPath.UIAutomationNext.Activities.NSelectItem

Description

Selects an item from a drop-down combo box or list box. After you indicate the element on screen, the list with all the available options is displayed in the activity. This activity must be added inside a Use Application/Browser activity.

Important:

Using this activity on a combo box or list box that has not been interacted with before you run the workflow can cause the activity to throw an error. The best practice to avoid this issue is to add a Click activity configured to click the target drop-down menu before the Select Item activity is executed.

Properties

Common

  • Continue on error - Specifies if the automation should continue even when the activity throws an error. This field only supports Boolean values (True, False). The default value is False. As a result, if the field is blank and an error is thrown, the execution of the project stops. If the value is set to True, the execution of the project continues regardless of any error.
  • Delay after - Delay (in seconds) between the time this activity is completed and the time the next activity begins any operations. The default value is 0.3 seconds. Adding a delay between activities ensures that one activity has enough time to complete before the next activity begins.
  • Delay before - Delay (in seconds) between the time the previous activity is completed and the time this activity begins performing any operations. The default value is 0.2 seconds. Adding a delay between activities ensures that one activity has enough time to complete before the next activity begins.
  • DisplayName - The name displayed for the activity in the Designer panel. A display name is automatically generated when you indicate a target.
  • Timeout - Specify a number of seconds for which to wait for the activity to be executed before throwing an error. The default value is 30 seconds.

Input

  • Item - Specifies the item to select.

Misc

  • Private - If selected, the values of variables and arguments are no longer logged at Verbose level.
