Is terminal field editable?

I have a mainframe terminal UiPath bot process that needs to check if a notes screen field is editable or not for the next decision. Does anyone have code or an activity to verify if a field is editable.

Hi @Anstett_Timothy_N :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

Welcome to UiPath Community !

Would you mind sending us a screenshot of what it looks like when editable and when not editable please ? I did not hear of a code that does it, but we’ll look together for a solution

Hi Timothy, welcome!

I haven’t seen any terminal activity that can do this in one step, but how about something like this:

  • Move Cursor to field position
  • Send Keys to write
  • Get Text at Position to read
  • Boolean to check if text has been entered correctly
  • Surrounded the sequence in Try/Catch in case any activity fails, because the field is missing or not editable

Handle exception in Catch block and continue process flow depending on boolean variable.

Does this help?
Happy Automating
