RPA Challenge Click Submit Button Error "Could not find the user-interface (UI) element for this action. "

Hello All,

I am trying to run a workflow for http://www.rpachallenge.com/ RPA challenge given in academy. I am using Click activity to click the Submit button! My automation works fine if I zoom out chrome and run as Submit button is visible in all 10 cases. But when Submit button is not visible then I get the error "Could not find the user-interface (UI) element for this action. "

Is it necessary for the UI element to visible on the screen so that the robot can perform an action on that element?

In case we do not use zoom in then how can we perform automation. Do i need to provide scrolling action to make Submit button visible?

Thanks in advance.


Automation with UI is tricky. It is necessary that UI element is visible to the bot

My Suggestion is handle this exception/error.

use Try Catch activity and if this error occurs zoom in or zoom out as required and perform Submit, then reset zoom %age to default so next iteration can occur as expected

Thank you Aditya… Will try with trycatch block
