I have an automation task, where I need to be clicking inside of Outlook 2019. However, when using Click activity it only works once because the Click activity is looking for the UI element to click on.
My question is, is there an activity or a way to configure Click so it clicks on a sepcific (x,y) coordinate on Outlook without needen to worry about the UI element? I heard that you could configure Click activity in Options and give it specific coordinates to click on, however, that does not show up on my UiPath Studio
Here are some similar threads to mine, but outdated so I can’t use them. The core idea in these threads are the same as mine. Wanting to click on a specific location without having to worry about the UI element.
That is not what I want, sorry. Imagine we have opened Outlook, now, inside Outlook I want to click on a meeting, however, you have to double click the meeting to open it up. I want to open a meeting up, delete it and repeat until all the meetings have been deleted. I have made everything work besides the clicking part. Once I have used the Click activity it keeps looking for a UI element. Is there a way to just tell UiPath to click on a specific part of Outlook without looking for the UI Element?
Also, using the Image Region Selection does not work since it still only looks for the UI element to click on.
That is the problem. I don’t want to have to specify a selector.
I will try one more time to ellaborate my question. I just need my process to click somewhere, don’t care if there is an UI element or not. Even if it is a blank site just click on a specific part of that blank site.
There can’t not be a UI Element. If you can click it, it’s a UI Element. I think you’re not understanding that literally everything on your screen is a UI Element, it’s the foundation of how Windows works.
You can designate the Outlook window itself as the UI Element to click, if you want. But I still don’t get the point. If you’re trying to click a specific thing within Outlook like a meeting, email, tab, menu, etc all those things are UI Elements.
Hmmm, not quite. Your window consist of a bunch of pixels where you can specify specific UI element if you choose so. Your whole window is actually a GUI, not an element. As an example, in Python and Java they have integrated GUI’s where you can click without having to specify UI elements. Would be nice if UiPath would offer the same
