How to input date in web browser field


I have a task where I need to input a date value to run the report from a date that is 10 days before the current date, I had performed the following steps:

  1. assigned a variable ‘effectivedatevar’ as today.AddDays(-10)
  2. Type into activity to type into the date field by effectivedatevar.ToString(“MM/dd/yyyy”)

my field where i need to type into looks like this


But if I run the above the type into activity does not work, It doesn’t throw an error but it doesn’t work. Any help on this is appreciated


Is it calendar Activity and need to select date from calendar or what ?

Manually are you able to type date into it or not ?

@lakshman manually i can type in the date, and there is a calendar too. Both can be done

Ok. Could you please take screenshot of Type Into Activity properties and show me once.

Try with this buddy
— a string variable named effectivedatevar with value like this
effectivedatevar = Now.ToString(“MM/dd/yyyy”)
— use type into activity with input as effectivedatevar.Tostring
Where enable the property like
Simulatetype, in the type into activity property panel

But before that make sure that field takes input as MM/dd/yyyy as input and try that manually before getting to above steps

Hope this would help you buddy
Kindly try this and let know for any queries or clarification

Hi @Ashish_Mehra

Does the activity fail to enter a value in the date field, or does it enter an incorrect value?

It Fails to enter the value


Check ClickBeforeTyping, EmptyField and Simulate Type in properties and try it once.

For some reason the clickbefore typing is not working. I tried it manuall to click and type, it inputs the value within the field , but its not working within the type into activity, any further help on this ?

Okay this worked @Palaniyappan thanks a lot again , I had to uncheck the simulate type and check the click before type part.
