How to define browser tab in browser IE

My studio x version is 2021.10.4

I made RPA to do work in IE browser. Once I click one button “Open Task”, there is new tab showing, then I want to click “Save” button there. However, the problem is the screen always switch back to the 1st tab, as a result robot cannot find button “save” to continue its work.
Please help me how can I contine my task working with new tab.

Hi @Gokion

Use attach window/attach browser indicating if its a window indictating the newly opened opened tab and inside the do container perform the click save activity!

Thank you for your prompt reply. But I cannot find attach window / attach browser activity in my uipath

Hi @Gokion

Use the filter option from the activities panel and Enable the option show classic!

Hi,

For studiox we don’t have option to switch to classic activities like attach window.

For your issue could you pls use check app state and indicate your save button element and use Wait for → Element to appear and under target appears sections use your click save activity.

and select the seconds as per your requirement like how much we should wait for that element.

Please try the above steps and let us know thanks.

Hi @pravin_calvin @kirankumar.mahanthi1

Thank you for you great support.

I’ve tried to follow your instruction, the screen was not switched back. It can stay. However, robot didn’t click the “save” button. It stop the process after waiting for a while.
Can you advise what I did wrong.?

Hi @Gokion ,

your welcome.

Could you pls do below two changes to your flow and let us know. thanks.

  1. Change the wait time from 5 seconds to 30 seconds(don’t worry it is not a static wait. it is a conditional wait).

  2. While indicate the save button please select the anchor as cancel button so that it uniquely identify the save button with the anchor.

Hi @Gokion

Another alternate way is Before Clicking the save button

Use Another Use Application and indicate the tab and Select the property application Instance!

Hi,
I am facing a similar problem. My browser is opening a new window and I want to work in the new window, but studio x jumps back to the old one (because it is in the application/browser activity). It is not possible for me to add an additional application browser with the new url. (i would have to login again)
