I am trying to capture some data from an old Desktop UI application written on VB6. The idea is to attach UiPath Robot to an opened desktop application window, capture the button click event and, once that happens, to capture some data values from a number of data entry fields that are also in the window.
So far I was unable to intercept the clicking event. Tried User Events > Element Trigger > Click Trigger pointing to a button or a checkbox within the window. It didn’t work. Tried Element > Mouse > Click again targeting a checkbox within the client application window. No luck. All I’m trying to do at this stage is to simply write a Log messge when the event is intercepted. No matter what I click within the target desktop application - no sign of event interception.
Any ideas on what might be a reason for that not to work, or what to do to make it work?
I am on Windows 10. Target application is VB6 with windows forms in it.
