Find/Search a text in web page and click on it

Hi All, @Pablo_Sanchez,

Using UiPath web recording I recorded a click action on “999_test” link on web page. When I rerun the recorded script it was working fine.

Now, I added activities like SendHotKeys, TypeInto to finding the required text on the web page. After finding the required text it should click on it. And I am passing the text as variable
(SCSearchWord(Name) — String(Type) — “999_test”).

Now When I am trying to click on the next link by passing the variable as (EnterText(Name) — String(Type) — “5354 - Test”). It is still clicking on 999-test link.

Please find the web page links screenshot below.

Can anyone help me on it.

It is still clicking on the 999_test because the click activity stored the Selector of the text link 999_test so make the Selector Dynamic so that it search the proper link before clicking on it.

It would be great if you share the link of website you working on so that i can suggest more on selectors, else you could figure out that by yourself.

Let me know if it helps,

Hi @megharajky,

Sorry, I can’t share much with you as it’s company property.

Sure No Problem,

Just let me know if working with selectors helped, else you can work with Click Text activity too.

Just remove the ID from attributes and validate.


If I remove ID its not working. please find screenshot below.



Even I tried with delay activity but I am getting only the below output. click action is not performed.

Hello @Bhaskar_Mukka
I hope this solves the problem, I created a new variable called “selector” and assign the dynamic selector with the language searched and finally used this selector in the click activity, feel free to download the xaml file
