ParentId in Anchor Base

Hi, when I tried to use the “Find Element” activity in the Anchor Base, the robot is not able to find the element indicated. But it works after I uncheck the ParentId attributes and make it into parentid=’*’ in the expression editor. May I know what does the ParentId mean and why it works after I uncheck it?

Parent id is the class of parent div which you could find by seeing the html code of the particular element

Hi, so why the robot managed to find the element when I uncheck this attribute? Won’t unchecking the parent id make the element’s location less specific?

Yes it could pick up any parent div and may become unspecific in sone case

I see… thank you very much
