How Does UIPath recognize elements ? What is the technology/algorithm behind it ? Example :- Desktop Application

I was trying to search the web on how does RPA technologies work in background, haven’t found a convincing answer. A detailed answer to this question would be appreciated

Hi @kudoshi

In in layman’s terms, UiPath runs an engine that discovers the tree of elements on your desktop and uses that to determine the elements (based on selectors).

The easiest way to understand it is to open our UiExplorer and select anything on your Desktop. It will then display the hierarchy that is used.
