try using recording mode, you can pause recording by pressing F2 before hovering on to the particular object

then hover mouse pointer on the object. by this time recording will be started again.

now try using Get ocr text or get text

That’s a good challenge :slight_smile:

After selecting the selector in UiExplorer, click on property explorer, check is the tool tip is appearing in any of the attribute.

In may case one window based application is showing the tool tip value in ‘text’ property.

So “Get Attribute” activity will help to extract the tool tip. Use “text” attribute. Try and let me know if that helps.

That is a nice solution, but it will not work every time. For example, it will not work for these types of tooltips:
