Purpose and Usage of Invoke Code activity

Need the purpose and usage or when to use the Invoke Code Activity

Hi @ksat1975

Invoke code activity

Sometimes it is more efficient to use code than readymade activity :relaxed:

This can help you.

I’ve also used invoke code when there aren’t activities that allow me what I’m trying to do.

For example, UiPath doesn’t have a for loop construct. These can be necessary when trying to iterate through items in a non-sequential or backwards order. Instead of trying to emulate one with the do while activity and a counter, I’ll throw in a quick 5-20 lines of code instead.

Note that if you find yourself invoking the same or similar piece of code, it’s better to make a custom activity for it. But for one-off situations, it’s much faster to just use the invoke code activity.
