I have just recently installed UIPath studio with a trial licence.
From what I can see in the Recording tutorials, when the user wants to input a text for example, the type box is automatically displayed asking for the input text.
I do not get that however. It does work if I just do the Type action on itself. But I cannot use Recording to create an entire flow. Just clicking on something works.
Welcome to the Community!
No there’s no limitation inside application at all. We rather called it Community Edition not “trial”. The difference between CE (Community Edition) and EE (Enterprise Edition) is mostly about using it in more complex servers environment. Additionally for EE you may buy more robots with different behavior (attended, unattended) etc. Below you have information about differences:
Regarding the text input and recording action please feel free to use our https://academy.uipath.com especially “Level 1 - Foundation Training” which will teach you how to use UiPath Studio. It’s the best way to understand everything Happy automation!
Buddy to get that
1, Once open a untitled notepad
2. open your studio and press like atl+Ctrl+d
3. This would open a wizard where select type option and dropdown click type option
4. Now it will ask for the place to type the text, while being the notepad open click on the text panel of the notepad and you can see like this
Using Type is working. What does not work is pressing the Record button and doing this activity, despite tutorials showing this should be possible.
I want to be able to create a flow from Recording instead of having to do multiple activities such as Type, Start App etc. separately.
Buddy actually that would work buddy, when you are using Recording wizard to type into any edit text panel or a field.
My kind suggestion, why not even uipath suggests that all the process cannot be completely automated by recording wizards while we need some manual recording in the middle as well…And i am very sure that you will get to know this when you are doing some complex, highly integrated application automation, because i was also using the recording option to automate the process in the very beginning, and later understood that we need some design tweak with manual design as well…But again i m telling its possible to open a application and type into in a single recording as well…
Well developing robots that automate things, really needs an openmind kind of view.
Sometimes a selector doesn’t work that well and you need to find an other solution.
Like working with hotkeys or implementing vb.
I havent found anything that i could not make functional.
Somethimes you just need an other approach. Like in this example for reading and editing text files.
NotePad works much beter then NotePad++
Try with notepad buddy @radu.balaj ,but it must be some software version compatibility,as i am able to record and type in notepad++ as well
Based on your interest i would like you to do the same in notepad and give a shot…lets try this and i hope it would work as notepad is more reliable compared to notepad++
