Seeking your kind support. I am working on application automation using Click and type Into activity but having issues. I want this automation to work in the background but Input method “Simulate” is not working and throwing an exception as mentioned below while using type into activity
RemoteException wrapping UiPath.UIAutomationNext.Exceptions.InputModeNotSupportedException: Writing text with “Simulate” is not supported for this element.
Tried Input Method “windows message” in type into activity but it is not typing complete text. e.g., I trying to type “Exelon Cisco Deal ID - 55228899” but it is typing "xelon isco eal - 55228899. However, tried to put delays between keys but same issue
It’s window application. Also, tried set Text but it’s not working and giving an exception.
RemoteException wrapping UiPath.Core.ElementOperationException: Member not found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80020003 (DISP_E_MEMBERNOTFOUND)) —> RemoteException wrapping System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException: Member not found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80020003 (DISP_E_MEMBERNOTFOUND))

Then the only options you have are send windows messages and hardware events…
In send windows mesaages generally casing and all might be removed…and for special characters we have to use as in keyboard some times like to click any special characters we hold shift and type need to follow that
Hi @Naresh_Upadhyay Since Hardware Event working fine did you try running in unattended with this option. I believe to run unattended automation, it’s not mandatory to set the simulate/window option. These are required when the robot not able to communicate with the application properly with normal options.
