Arguments not visible when testing activity

Hello! We recently upgraded to UiPath 2020.10.4.

After that I keep having problems with the Locals Panel. Sometimes, the variables are simply blanked out and an error is thrown. This happens when the workflows are a bit more complicated.

But the main problem is that the arguments disappear from the locals panel as soon as test activity is started.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Create a workflow with some arguments and variables
  • But a break point at the beginning
  • Right click to “Test activity”
  • You will see the arguments
  • Push continue to start the code
  • At the breakpoint, the arguments are gone

I recon it can be a difference between “Test activity” and “Run in debug mode”. But I do not want to debug the main.xaml, I want to debug another part of the program. Should I right click the workflow I want to test and do a “Set as Main”? Do that back and forth some times, depending on where I want to start? Or what are your ideas about the debug process? I think we are working in different ways.

Hi @mari.svh,
Are you able to record a screen capture of what you are saying? I would like to make sure that I understand it the right way.

@mari.svh thanks for reporting. We replicated the behaviour internally.

Meanwhile you can use Watch and Immediate panels to view the values for the existing arguments.


This issue should now be fixed in our 2021.10 release.
