Scraping only part of what UI Path wants to


#1

I’m using Get text, and when specifying the element to scrape it keeps showing me a blue box to scrape that is more than I want to scrape. I only want to scrape part of what is in that blue box. How do I only scrape a portion of what is in the blue box?

Hi @JoeCap

You try hovering over the edges to see if there is a smaller box available. You can also try UiExplorer to find out if there is a lower level in the tree.

If that doesn’t work, you can always process the resulting string by removing the unwanted content.

If none of this works, you can also OCR a specific screen area, be it much less reliable in speed, background automation and accuracy.
