Identify blank text fields

#1

I want to login to a website using username and password through textfields provided for both.
The textfields are blank without any adjacent labels.
They don’t have visual hues like hint text.

So normal Basic recording fails to recognize the two textfields.
Manual Mouse Click Activity, Click Image also don’t work for these.

Is there any other way or workaround to fix this issue?

Are those fields html elements? If so, how about using a property like “idx” in the selector string.
Or you can use tab keys to move to the target field.
I would choose the second option, since I do not want to waste my time with those RPA-unfriendly-apps :stuck_out_tongue:
