Problem during mouse hovering/ indicating element inside a browser

Hi there,
I’m getting the following problem when making a project:-
When I’m indicating a particular section on web-page (like selecting search bar or button, name of an item or any images ) during indicating element inside a browser in “take screenshot” activity or in “Data Scrapping”, instead of selecting the particular element, the whole web page is getting selected …
Anyone having solution to this problem please reply me…

Hi @abhi.01

Can you send the screenshot of the error

Thanks

here in this screenshot, as you can see, when I’m taking cursor to the search bar to select it, the whole web-page getting selected instead of that particular section…

I Believe, the entire webpage here seems to be a single table. Data scraping identifies different table , as per my knowledge. oN selection of a single cell/data, it asks you do you want to extract entire info or not. Here, its selecting entire screen because, its a singel cell i believe. Have to debug.

But, whats the aim of usign that activity. i.e, what is the requirement to be done here? Could you please let us know for better understanding before proposing a solution.

Hi @ArunVelaayudhanG
Actually I was making project to extract data (vacancies in SAP ABAP in DELHI region) from naukri and to send it via mail. But when automating this project ( i.e. going to web browser then to given link > after reaching the given link then searching about SAP ABAP / typing it on search bar), I’m getting this problem…

Hi @abhi.01,

Please follow the below instruction to enable UiPath extension in Private window so that you can scrape each Ui element by Using data scraping method.
Extension%20for%20privatewindow

If you find this is as solution Please mark as solution.

Hi @Mohansadaiyapillai
I was guessing the same, the extension problem… but I wasn’t aware about adding extension separately for incognito mode…
I’ve done it now but same problem…as you can see in pic…

Why data scraping is used? Type into or try using computer vision activities . Works better. After that use click activity to search…
You should use data scraping on the page that has the results to extract results

@ArunVelaayudhanG… Facing same problem when using “type into”…

Try to change the UI Framework options In UI Explorer and then try to generate the selector And use that selector in that activity.
For better understanding watch this video:

Idk how…but this problem got sorted out automatically when I opened my pc today and started working on that project …I think closing the software(UI path) and again starting it, fixed the problem…
If anyone faced the same problem/situation like this (I mean, restarting UI Path Studio helped to fix any problem automatically ), then please let me know…
Thanks to everyone who helped me in this matter…
