The UiPath Activities Guide

Select File


Opens a dialog box to select a file.



  • Filter - Can be used to specify the type of file you want to filter. The Filter string should contain a description of the filter, followed by a vertical bar (|) and the filter pattern. Multiple filter descriptions and pattern pairs must be separated by vertical bars. Multiple extensions in a filter pattern must be separated by a semicolon (;).
    For example, if you only want to select PDF files, the filter should look like PDF files (*.pdf)|*.pdf.
    If you want multiple image filetypes, as well as all files, the filter should look like Image files (*.bmp, *.jpg)|*.bmp;*.jpg|All files (*.*)|*.*


  • SelectedFile - The full path of the selected file.


  • DisplayName - The display name of the activity.


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