Did you try just passing the Hot Key Activity (esc or enter) by not Indicating the element?


#3

Yes, I tried Hot Key Activity (enter) by not indicating the element but still I got the same error “Attribute not supported by the current UiNode.” Please help


#4

Looks like the error is thrown by Check activity, try Click Activity instead.


#5

Tried using the Click Activity but this time I got an error “Click ‘INPUT’ : Click generic error.”


#6

Thanks vvaidya!!! Its working as expected

Hi Vaidya,

I am getting same error (Attribute not supported by current UINode) for “Check” activity and i am using UiPath studio (2018.2) version. Please sugget.

From my experience, some checkboxes are not properly recognized by the Check activity as a checkbox, thus giving the error message.

In those situations you should use Click activity instead.

Thanks for your reply. Click activity is working fine. But we need to track if that option is checked or not first then only we need to click it.
We are trying to “image exist” option with image carrying (checked + relative text). But it’s always return “True” if that option is checked or not.
Please suggest.

I would suggest Get Attribute activity. The checkbox might change the specific attribute’s value and by checking it you will be able to see its status.

It help me once when one of the attributes was changing between “Selected: Yes” and “Selected: No”.

You can most likely track it down if UI Explorer.

Good luck!

Yeah, I already tried Get Atrribute. I am not seeing any differences in any of the property when that option is checked vs unchecked.

If it is a web application, you might also want to try the actual HTML via Inspect element in a browser. Sometimes I had some luck and I found some attributes that were not visible in UI Explorer.

Thank you. Let me try using HTML via inspect element
