Find children/Select Item

Hi Guys,

I want to select the car model menu list and copy the price and then next model to be selected but i am unable to do that i tried Find children activity its not working looks like its not dropdown.

Can someone guide me how to solve this ?

Did you try using ‘Select Item’ activity and Pass the value of the picklist one after another from an array?

Hi ram,

If i give select item its not doing any activity its stopping there. Can you give rough activity steps to be followed? I haven’t tried any array how to do that?

Hi @Lawrance_A

Use the below advise if the Select Item activity does not work.

You can try using UiExplorer to find the appropriate selector for the elements. I guarantee you that you will be able to select each element by its actual name with a simple Click activity.

From there, you can simply create a variable of String (which is an Array of Strings) with all your values in it, like that:
Note that you have to select the type of Array of T and then select String

Then you can create a For Each loop to loop through all elements in your array and use the item as a variable in your selector:

Hi Mac,
I Haven’t tried UI path explorer, I will try now and let you know.

Thank you.


  1. i Have Tried using select item again and am able to select only one model am not sure how to choose next model - My requirement is to pick one model save the price in excel and it should pick the another model Loop should be there.

  2. I tried using UIpath explorer am anot able to click correct model so sectors also seems incorrect.

Need your guidance.image

Hi Ram,

I Can able to select only one model in Select item, How to select multiple models one by one by using array ?


Create a variable with type as String.

Use a for each loop to loop through the values of this array, like this:

Keep your ‘Select Item’ activity within this for each loop and pass the value as ‘item’ to the activity.

HI @Lawrance_A

you need to update your selector with array value .

use for each loop,

for item in arrayvariable

 you can use click activity here ( After adding click activity edit selector ( String variable - " +"item+" "
