How to check element exists?

Hello everyone,
I have a scenario where i have to check is element in webpage exists or not, if exits then only send shortcut key.

For example: I have to sent shortcut key on webpage if text “ABCT” is exists, the main concerned is “ABCT” text is more than 50 words which doesn’t matters to me, only thing that is matters is the keyword “ABCT” text is on webpage or not.

How to do this help me out guys !

Hey @prabin_chand1
You can use this in modern activity

And like this in the classic activities

Hope this helps you


Hi @prabin_chand1 ,

Could you show us sample structure of the webpage?
if that text “ABCT” position is fixed, you can use activity Get Text/ Get Full text/ Element Exist / Check App State.

if text “ABCT” not fixed, you can try to scraping all data from wepage and use Regex or other method to check is “ABCT” text exist or not.

Can you try CheckkAppState with the following selector (innertext)?

<webctrl tag='BODY' innertext='*ABCT*' />

You can use an anchor, so first map the first element, then search another element that will not change, it could be a title, header, etc, and select it as anchor, you would see green element as the element you want, and blue element as the anchor element
