I encounter a strange situation that the Select Item activity works perfectly on its own to select “China” on the combo box of a web application. But when it was added back to the Invoke Workflow File activity of the Main workflow, it just cannot select anything with no error message.
Under the sub-workflow, other UI activities like Click, Type Into work fine (I should have passed the right “Browser” property argument to the sub workflow). I have tried to add the Click activity just before the Select Item activity, the Click activity can click on the combo box, but still the Select Item activity selects nothing.
I tried to use Type Into with the value “China”, but the combo box shows different countries when different character was entered (C…country starting with “C”; h…country starting with “H”; i…country starting with “I”, etc.)
Since a pop up window follows after the combo box, asking the user to acknowledge the action before the combo box confirm the selection, I have to use Parallel activity to click on the pop up window (again it works perfectly on its own). Seems that Select Item activity is the better choice .
Is there any advice on this ?
