Java App - How can I click a non-visible Popup menu item?

The Ui Automation Element “Find Element” correctly finds the menu item I want to click. However, the Click activity is not successful. Even though my target menu item is NOT visible on screen, it was contained in the Found Element variable.

How can I click this non-visible menu item (ideally, without first getting its parent(s) and navigating click by click down the flyout menu selections)?

Here is a quick illustration:

Additional Info:
I was able to Set Focus on the target element before the Click activity, but that did not help.


you can try using the hover element activity and then clicking.

also you can enable the simulate click propertie in the click activity


Changing the Click activity’s input mode to Simulate worked!
Thank you for your quick and correct response!!!
