Properties panel

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.
  • Display name - The name displayed for the activity in the Designer panel. A display name is automatically generated when you indicate a target.

  • Timeout - Specify the amount of time (in seconds) to wait for the activity to be executed before throwing an error. The default value is 30 seconds.

Input

  • Target - The target element. Target element must be set. Before indicating on screen, this field is set to (null). Once the target is indicated, all properties regarding the element that was indicated are displayed.
    • CV Control type - Indicates the type of control identified using Computer Vision.
    • CV Text - Indicates the text identified using Computer Vision.
    • Fuzzy selector - The parameters for the fuzzy selector.
    • Native text - The text that is used to identify the UI element.
    • Responsive websites - Enable responsive websites layout.
    • Strict selector - The strict selector generated for the UI element.
    • Targeting methods - The selector types that you want to use for identifying the element. This property can be set to any combination from the drop-down menu:
      • None
      • Strict selector
      • Fuzzy selector
      • Image
      • Native text
      • Computer Vision
    • Visibility check - Checks whether the UI element is visible or not. You can choose one of three options from the drop-down menu:
      • None - Does not check for visibility.
      • Interactive (for Fuzzy Selector) - Default option. Checks if the element is potentially visible, ignoring page scroll and obstructions by other apps, or the fact that the application is minimized. This check is useful when trying to ensure that you are not targeting invisible elements that exist in the DOM but are hidden.
      • Fully visible - Checks if the UI element is visible or not.
    • Wait for page load - Before performing the action, wait for the application to become ready to accept input. You can choose one of three options from the drop-down menu:
      • None - Does not wait for the target to be ready.
      • Interactive - Waits until only a part of the app is loaded.
      • Complete - Waits for the entire app to be loaded.
    • Window selector (Application instance) - The selector that is used for the application window. Only applicable when the window attach mode is set to Application instance.

Input/Output Element

  • Input element - The UI element on which the activity is executed, stored in an UIElement object. This field supports only UIElement objects. This object can be obtained from the Output Element property field of other UI Automation activities.
  • Output element - Outputs a target UI Element and stores it in a UIElement object, which can be further used to target the same element with other activities.

Misc

  • Private - If selected, the values of variables and arguments are no longer logged at Verbose level. This field supports only Boolean (True, False) values. The default value is False.

Output

  • Is enabled - See Is enabled in the Designer panel.
