Before I start, I need to say I’ve looked up the community before for similar issues and I couldn’t find anything that would indeed solve my problem.
When I tried the solution above, I got the following error:
So I tried increasing delay/changing TimeoutMS but had no success.
I am trying to get text value from a form in web application whose html properties are dymically chaging.
This a part of my form:
I need the value (on the right side) from each title on the left side.
Now it’s how UIPath reads it:
if you notice, the IDs have a “gen” prefix which means “generated”, thus everytime the page is refreshed the number after “gen” changes - which means the id is not reliable.
I need to perform this action inside a “for each row sequence” because I get a new form for each person on the list I have.
Debbuging my robot on UIPath Studio I can see the values for the first “row” in the loop are correct. However, for all others it gets blank values - I assume because the IDs have changed at this point.
After exhausting my attemps with UIExplorer, I’ve tried Screen Scrapping but the outcome was even worse. The page is so poorly designed that UIPath won’t even recognise the form as a “table”.
The other solution I’ve given some thought is: getting the title element which seems to have a realible ID.
And trying to get the form value from there. If you notice, “aaname” is the same as the actual name displayed on the form.
Is there any way I can accomplish this? Bear in mind, it is a Span tag - so I’m not sure if I can interpret this as a hierarchy and use “get children” activity for example.
I hope someone can help me!
