Automation ON CATIA V5 tool

Use Case Description

Hello everyone,
I would like to ask you if there’s anyone who worked on CATIA V5 Selectors
this is the first time that i have used this tool in my automations and i faced alot of issues with some activities for UIAUTOMATION Such as;

  • clicks ( only image click activity works with the selectors of this application)
  • check activity (does not work )
  • image exists and element exists does not work efficiently ( my use case is to check if a checkbox is checked or not )
    PS : For this check with using image exists activity i have change the accuracy and test too many time the result is not efficient it always returns true maybe the image that i have indicated too little or something check attached screeshot)

Could you please help me if you have any idea on how i could do the check on a checkbox or radio button if it’s checked or no ( except with image exists activity solution)?

i’m having some difficulties with automating certain tasks in CATIA V5 using UiPath. Unfortunately, some applications can be challenging to automate due to the way their user interface is designed.

If the image click activity is the only one that works with the selectors, you can try using the “Click Image” activity in combination with the “Wait Image Appear” activity to check if a checkbox or radio button is checked or not. This way, you can wait for the image to appear before checking its status.

Another option you could try is using the “Get Attribute” activity to get the value of the “checked” attribute of the checkbox or radio button. This could be more reliable than the “Image Exists” activity if the image recognition is not accurate.

If these solutions do not work, you could try to get more information on the specific attributes and elements used in the CATIA V5 user interface, and if they can be accessed and automated using UiPath. This may require some research or collaboration with CATIA experts.

Keep in mind that automation of some applications can be challenging, and there may not be a straightforward solution for every scenario. However, with some creativity and persistence, you may be able to find a solution that works for your use case.
