It is my understanding that this selector is using the “parentId” (which I am guessing is generated by UIPath looking at the DOM tree to count the nested DIVs and create this ID) and the fact the element is an INPUT. Is that where this “parentId” attribute is coming from and if so wouldn’t that be affected by dynamic HTML from popup windows in a single page app?
In cases like this one, what is the best practice? If I cannot find reliable selectors that will work through updates and other changes is it best to find another solution other than UI automation? Are reliable selectors not the foundation of a good reliable project that will be scalable moving forward?
