It will be Necessary to have these features in custom dialog input

  1. Ability to set width & height of window.
  2. Custom Favicon.
  3. Be able to Input data into Custom Input Window besides of chaging html file for realtime Exchange data.
  4. ability to Define Css & Js File to load with Html file other than style & script tags inside html file.

Hi @ali_fath

Please check out the UiPath.Form.Activities:

It is still being improved, but does a lot more than the simple Custom Input activity :slight_smile:

Thank you for your suggestion. I added it to our internal ideas tracker for our team to consider.

Could i also submit for consideration changing the Custom Input so that it isnt reliant on IE7?
Maybe a browser selector much like the Open Browser activity?
I find i should be able to do so much more with Custom Input than the Form will ever do as far as adapting and changing on the fly.

Hi @davidtodd1972,
The Custom Input suppose to be on basic level of IE to be compatible with a simple forms of a HTML sites. However if you like to experiment just include in your file (can be in <title>) this:
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=Edge"/> - this is forcing to use Edge engine (allows for HTML5 features)
<!-- saved from url=(0016)http://localhost --> - this enables an automatic sandbox mode which additionally skips some prompts in the upper part of the window

Apart from that you should give a try to the Form activities. You can include there a Label component to which you can easily inject HTML code and with use of a input collection work with it like with the website.

Firstly thanks for the quick response.
Rather than back and forth i will attach my HTML so all can see what i am referring to.
In particular i am trying to hide and show sections (DIV) of the form based on selection.
I assumed that i couldn’t do that with Forms, but i will have another look based upon what you said.

<!-- saved from url=(0016)http://localhost --> - this is really useful thanks

the content=Edge just doesn’t work for me, i have found this listed as a suggestion elsewhere as well. (859 Bytes)

You can see that the sections do come and go but start shown which they shouldnt.
The dates are the real problem here

Hi @davidtodd1972

Just for the sake of completing the topic. It is completely possible to use Form for this use-case with its conditionals capacity :slight_smile:

It would work like so:
