Hi @Shashii,

Native - aside from scraping the text, it also captures the position of the text and other text properties such as font style and colour. Think of it like your clipboard doing the copy-paste for you

Reference :

Simulate Click Method

It is the best method to interact with applications that are not visible or in foreground. This acts more like a developer programmatically changing the state of a control, making it 100% accurate if the control reacts to it. This method doesn’t work in all cases as there are technologies we cannot automate natively, by taking advantage of their underlying technology. This option can be set for Click activity.
