Hi @badita,
Point 1 and 2 has been completed. But not able to understand 3 and 4. Waiting for your solution to check how it can be done. :slight_smile:


By this do you mean that the clipping region has to be set?


Yes, I want to search only on a specific region of the screen.


Hi, is there a way we can assign the values for the Size property of the Set Clipping Region task during runtime? That would be the key to set a specific region for further data capture from Virtual desktop environments. Please advise if you have any suggestions. I have tried using the Region property with dynamic calculated values, but it doesn’t work as expected.


Hi @badita,

If I well understood your statement I think I did it!
I tried to upload my workflow, but I have an error message saying that new users cannot upload files.

See you


@Masire : It’s easy. Just make it to trust level 1. https://meta.discourse.org/t/what-do-user-trust-levels-do/4924/4


Ok thanks for your help. Workflow files are attached!

See you. And let me know if I’m doing it right!

@Masire That works but please change the workflows so that they directly work

  • use IE instead of firefox
  • add an Open Browser before going through the loop


Sorry for that. You’ll find my updated workflows.
