Clear text box before typing


#1

Hello friends,
I need to clear all the content inside a box before typing into the next number variable:


The problem is that the box has no proper UiPath Selector so I used the click image activity:

Can you help me in finding a way to clear all the content inside the box before selecting it with Click IMage?

Thank you so much,
Camilla :slight_smile:

@CamiCat typeinto activity has empty field property, check that field as shown in image below. It will clear the filed before typing.

Did you try keyboard shortcuts to select and cut the text… @CamiCat


#6

No @phyogananda.
I haven’t tried.
I don’t know how to reach the box :frowning:

@CamiCat

does it have any behavior like a edit box, when u mouse click on edit box , your cursor will be highlighted

in that case you use keyboard shortcut

Let me know if it works

Hi @CamiCat,

One more thing. it is a test . you have the selector in the image click. Please try the selector with Elementexists activity. Can you tell me the result.

A Suggestion.

Why don’t you try the findchildren activity ?
