UPDATE: I realized that I was using the “Select Relative Element” vs. “Select Target Element”, and that seemed to solved the problem I will update this post if I encounter other issues with the exercise.
I only saw one other post about this lesson, but it did not deal with the issue I am facing.
I am following the instructions exactly but am not able to get past the second step when adding the ‘Get Text’ activity. I completed the first step of indicating the random name on the screen and looking at the selector. After opening UiExplorer and indicating the ‘randomly generated name’ element on the web page, I am receiving the error 'The UiElement is no longer valid" (see screen shot). The path I took was:
- Open selector editor
- Click 'Open in UiExplorer"
To see if anything would change, I attempted to exit out of the selector editor and click the UiExplorer button at the top panel of UiPath Studio. However, after clicking the element again, nothing shows up for selectors (see other screen shot)
Any ideas on what I am missing?
My other issue is that the answer solution provided by UiPath for this exercise is incorrect. It is labeled as 'Full vs. Basic Selectors" but it contains a desktop and basic recording sequence that automates Notepad. Does anyone have a file with answers I could look at?
