I am automating a process in IE and working with a web application. Certain times the click activity takes a long time to execute (it feels like it waits for the activity to timeout and then performs the activity) and sometimes it works like a charm. There is no exceptions thrown it just waits a long time before the click is performed.
I am not sure if it is the application or studio that is having this issue. But I have not experienced this behaviour before the 2018.4.1 update.
I am using the click activity inside a “on element appear” and I have tried ti set the “wait for ready” property to “none”. This helped a little but it is still slow on certain occasions.
The selector is working fine, as in the end (after the wait) the button is clicked and no error is thrown.
Steps to reproduce:
Create a process that works in a web application and click on certain buttons.
Sometimes the button clicks as it should but sometimes the wait time is long. It feels like the activity times out and then performs the action.
The click activity is performed when the button etc. is available/visible without waiting 30 seconds
Studio/Robot/Orchestrator Version: 2018.4.1 Studio
This situation may happen when UiPath waits for loading the entire page/structure. You can try changing value of Target → WaitForReady from Complete to Interactive/None
Following is the significance of values of WaitForReady:
None: does not wait for the target to be ready.
Interactive: waits until only a part of the app is loaded.
Complete: waits for the entire app to be loaded.
