How do we read data from a text file and put the data in Type Into box? For example for signing in to a website I want to read the username and password from a config file. But I cant find an option to read a particular data from a text file. What I am able to do is : to create a variable and store hard coded values in it.
I am quite new in Uipath. Can anyone help me with this please?
you have to use string split function or activity based on number of lines in your text file,
Can you please elaborate the steps a litle?
Hi there @abdult420,
As noted by @Ajithkumar_P, you can use string manipulation to acquire the values you require.
You can achieve this in a few ways, one of which is SubString/IndexOf.
Assign - strReadFile = "Username: Bill Password: Bill123"
Assign - strUsername = strReadFile.Substring((strReadFile.IndexOf("Username:") + 10), ((strReadFile.IndexOf("Password:") - (strReadFile.IndexOf("Username:") + 10))))
This will retrieve the username value (“Bill”) from the original string and store it in strUsername.
This works by:
Taking a SubString of the original string at position 10 (starting position of ‘Username:’ + 10) for a length of 5 (starting position of ‘Password:’  subtract the starting position of ‘Username:’ + 10 ).
As long as Username/Password exist in the text file in a sequential order, this will continue to work.
