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.
  • 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.

  • 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

  • Destination Target - The location where you want to drag and drop the UI Element to. Before indicating on screen the target you want to use, this field is set to (null). Once the target is indicated, all properties regarding the element that was indicated are displayed. The children properties of this field are identical to the ones specific to the Target property.
  • Mouse button - The mouse button you want to use for the drag and drop action. The available options are Left, Right, and Middle.
  • 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.
    • Click offset - Specifies an offset for the click activity, which can be further configured.
      • Anchoring point - Describes the starting point of the cursor to which it offsets from Offset X and Offset Y properties are added. The following options are available: TopLeft, TopRight, BottomLeft, BottomRight, and Center. By default, Center is selected.
      • Offset X - Horizontal displacement of the cursor position according to the option selected in the Anchoring point field. This field supports only Int32 variables.
      • Offset Y - Vertical displacement of the cursor position according to the option selected in the Anchoring point field. This field supports only Int32 variables.
    • 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.

Options

  • Delay between actions - Delay (in seconds) between the actions necessary to perform the drag and drop operation. The default value for this field is 0.3.
  • Key modifiers - This field enables you to specify the key modifiers you want to use during the drag and drop action. Multiple key modifiers can be selected for the action. The following options are available: None, Alt, Ctrl, Shift, and Win.
