Citrix - How to copy selected text when field is empty


I have an automation process which uses Citrix so I can’t use any UI Elements. I need to build into the process a check to select a field in Citrix and throw an error if the field value is empty.

When I use the copy selected text activity it throws an error stating that the process can’t continue. Is there another way to achieve this please? Bearing in mind that I can’t use any ui element/selector based activity types due to it being Citrix.
