Download Monthly Report

I’m trying to select Download Monthly Report in my assignment for the advanced training. I’m using a click activity to select it but the options that I want go away once the delay on the selector goes away.

How do I use the click activity to select things that require you to hover over them rather than to click on them to reveal the additional menus.

Hi @James_Palmer,

Just confirming, you are talking about this…

Aren’t you?

If so…

You have several options to solve this problem…

  1. You can use “Navigate To” activity. Then, just provide input “URL” (https://acme-test.uipath.com/reports/download) and “browser”. If you don’t want to provide browser input, use “Attach Browser” activity before and put Navigate To inside of it.

  2. First use a Click activity using the following selector: "<html title='ACME System 1 - Dashboard' /><webctrl aaname='Reports' parentid='dashmenu' tag='BUTTON' />"
    And then, a second Click activity using the following selector: "<html title='ACME System 1 - Dashboard' /><webctrl aaname='Download Monthly Report' parentid='dashmenu' tag='A' />"

  3. If you want to try by your own, you can:
    3.1 - In Click activity, click to indicate the element
    3.2 - Press F2, then a countdown will appear
    3.3 - Move to Reports, then the submenu with Download Monthly Report will appear
    3.4 - Still counting down, click and hold “Download Monthly Report”
    3.5 - Don’t stop holding until the countdown is over
    3.6 - After the countdown has ended, “release the click”
    3.7 - You will notice that now the submenu didn’t go away and you are in the indicate element mode.
    3.8 - Finally, just click “Download Monthly Report”.
    3.9 - This way you will get the selector that I shared in the second option
