Unfortunately I can set only accepted solution per topic so it goes to @aksh1yadav.

Thanks @tomek.pawlicki, @Lucas.Pimenta


I think maybe previous winners should not be allowed to enter for at least one round :smiley:


I think maybe updates should be allowed only on new posts, not edited ones. It’s unfair to be first post and do updates on the same post until get the shot to solution.

Anyway, congratulations to Aksh :slight_smile:


I’m not worried about winning man :smiley: Please, keep your answer as solution. Next time I will be fastest to post the solution first!
Congratulations again for winning! You’re very good in Uipath developing.




Here’s my solution :sweat_smile:

I think that it’s more simple.

What do you think?



hi @aksh1yadav could u please help on the get attribute part.
what is the “items” attribute which you have provided as the input , where did you get it from?

am actually trying to extract the count of items from a combobox so thought ur workflow would be helpful for me to refer to.

thank you :slight_smile:


I’m with @pramilag I don’t get how you geniuses know to use for example get attribute and pass ‘items’ that this is going to give the list of values the combo box holds. Other solutions use the find children activity (I would have looked in the Ui Automation -> Browser for activities to use to extract data from the browser and missed the find children activity in ui Automation -> Element -> find loads of other examples in the other challenges,

How do you guys know this stuff?

Good UiPathing!

Hi All,

This logic working fine for the normal automation(web/windows apps), is there any way to achieve this in Citrix environment.



Hi @harsha8687

There surely is, but because this is an RPA Challenge category, I will let you explore all the options yourself :slight_smile:
