Click Activity in Assignment 2 is not working


I would like to ask you for help. I have been trying to set a robot for Assignment 2 and I cannot deal with an easy task. I would like to use “Click Activity” in order to be able select the yearly report and upload it. But when I click on “Select Report File”, it does not react at all.

My Selector is set up as follows (btw SimulateClick is active):

But when I run the robot, I receive an error of the following activity which attaches a window which pops up when it is clicked on “Select Report File”.

Any idea what is wrong with my robot?

Thank you very much in advance!


Try this:

<html title='ACME System 1 - Reports - Upload Yearly Report' />
<webctrl aaname='Select Report File' tag='LABEL' />

try to open the attached window, and use ui indicator to see any difference between your windows and attach windows.

Welcome to uipath community buddy
kindly enable the property SIMULATECLICK in click activity buddy
and your selector looks perfect
Kindly try this and let know buddy
Cheers @haraslub

were you able to click now buddy @haraslub

Unfortunately, it does not work. I have already tried a couple of similar combinations.

Thank you for the warm invitation.

I have enabled SimulateClick in activity (already mentioned in the post). Any other idea? :slight_smile:

buddy did you place that click activity inside a attach window or attach browser activity
does the click is inside a container like above two activities with full selector, use any of those two activities and select the whole page as element and then place that click activity inside that activity buddy @haraslub
Try that and let know buddy
Cheers @haraslub

Do you mean to use UI Explorer? If so, I have checked it and it is validated. See the picture attached.

No buddy try to use a attach window activity and place that click activity within that activity buddy
Cheers @haraslub

It works! Thank you a lot, I appreciate it!

Btw I do not understand it. I had already used a attached window activity in steps before because I needed to use “Type Into” and “Select” activity on the same page.

Hey Man. Uipath studio can be a bit fragile sometimes. Use an attach browser and point it to the acme web page and place a click activity inside the do and point it to the select report file button, in the settings make sure you press the simulate click button. Let me know what happens?

Fantastic buddy
Cheers @haraslub
Keep going

Hello bobby,

Palaniyappan has already proposed that solution and it works. Thank you very much for your time and help anyway!

ok all good! Sometimes you need that attach browser because uipath forgets what to look at. So adding an extra one keeps uipath on the straight path.
