Explination of the diffrent selector "attributes"

Hi,

I was wondering if someone could give me an explanation of all the different attributes (not sure what to call it) in UI Explorer? I am referring to “aaname”, “isleaf” etc.

Hi @odajohnsen

“All of the different attributes” is too broad, and I never seen any documentation on it (anyone who know, please kindly share). But I believe

"aaname" usually contains text seen for that element (“Save” for the save button etc), and
"isleaf" seems to mean that the element is a child of a parent activity (it seems t make difference in idx numbering)

Do you know where I can find an extensive list of all the different selector attributes?

A list of possible attributes would be really helpful to be able to select harder to reach elements!

In my opinion, ‘aaname’ means innerText of an node.
‘isleaf’ may mean the node has no child.

Its an interesting topic. Why no one from Uipath is responding to this ?

We should know which attributes are reliable and should be kept in our selector like aaname and which attributes we should remove like idx, parentid etc, not sure what is isleaf.

Kindly some one from Uipath please respond.
