I can't click on the print dialog

@Natan_Crespo

Hi,

Simulate Click: Instead of using the regular “click” activity, you can use the “Simulate Click” or “Send Window Messages” options in the properties of the click activity.
Hotkeys: Instead of clicking on the “save” button, you can try sending hotkeys to the print dialog. For example, you can use the “Type Into” activity to send the “Ctrl+S” hotkey combination, which is commonly used for the “Save” action. Make sure the print dialog has focus before sending the hotkeys.

Hope it Works

Hi, Nathan. All good?!

An alternative that I usually use are the shortcuts, try navigating the keys at this time.

You can also try creating a Use Application Scope in this dialog that opens and, inside it, insert the click.

Hope, bro!

Shows that element exists but can’t click and says can’t click on different window elements

@Natan_Crespo
Are you using classic activities or Modern activities.
If you are using classic activity then use attach browser for this window and use click inside.

If you are using modern design then use browser/application and set property never open. It will behave like attach browser

Hi @Natan_Crespo

When you are using modern click activity try changing the UI framework from Default to Active Accessibility. Hope it might solve the error.

Hope it helps!!

When I use the use application browser to present this new window, it does not appear

Hi @Natan_Crespo

Use Check App State Activity and indicate the popup. In the target appears block give click activity and indicate it.

I do that and the following error appears:

Click ‘Save’: Unable to find GUI element for this action.

Possible solutions:
• Check that the application is open and that the GUI element is visible on the screen at runtime
• Edit the GUI Activity Target and use Validation to debug the issue.
• If necessary, indicate the element again if its properties have been changed
• Use the “Check state” activity to check the state of the application before executing the action
• Increase the value of “Delay before” for the application to render completely in time and become responsive

@Natan_Crespo
Could you share the screenshot of the process flow if possible so that it would be easy to solve.

Hi @Natan_Crespo

For click activity that you are using to click on save button make the input mode to hardware events, you can find the input mode option in click activity properties.

Why because when you click on print it will open a window which is the desktop application for the desktop applications we have to use the hardware events as input mode of any UI activity.

Hope it helps!!

I think I’m doing something wrong, because I’m putting it as hardware events, but it says it didn’t find the element.

Is there no other way to access this window?

Do you please confirm you are using classic or modern activities @Natan_Crespo

@Natan_Crespo Great. Happy automation

You don’t use Use Application/Browser to open the print window. You use it to attach to the print window after the print window is open.
