Screen scraping not working for 2nd iteartion

I have used screen scraping to get search results.
for the first itearation(htting the url> click on search option>type>check) it is working fine.

But for second iteartion(second URL no changes in UI) it is throwing exception

Make sure the title is dynamic and matches the selector.
After first search, the title of the browser window will change.
So in the second iteration, uipath unable to find the browser.
So in the selector set the title attribute to ‘*’ (for type into activity of search).

Still not working
<html app='chrome.exe' title='*' />

<html app='chrome.exe' title='*' />

html app=‘chrome.exe’ title=’*’ /

do we need to give continueOn=false?

Not required. Are you changing the URL or the search text ?

changing the URL. But there is no change in UI

For changing the URL, you can use the following activity -

use a attach window and do the screen scrapping within that @KarthikBallary
make sure the attributes that denotes the URL must be replaced with wildcard *
Kindly try this and let know buddy

Not working

url must be empty? or * or if I have paste the url

it is taking to new page


I need to select the UI ryt? on indicate screen

it must be * @KarthikBallary

yes we need to mention the UI on indicate screen

Do I need to perform both navigate and open browser.
what the diff btwn navigate and attach browser?

I have used open browser

Hi @KarthikBallary

1.Navigate to

2. Open Browser

Well of-course UiPath Gives us the best description, but here are my points that makes them different in approach, some in words,

Properties Navigate To Open Browser
Input 1 Name URL of a webpage URL of a webpage
Input 1 datatype String String
Input 2 Name Browser Browser type
Input 2 datatype UiPath.Core.Browser picked from dropdown
Output No output Variable Output variable is of type UiPath.Core.Browser
Hidden Browser Doesn’t open hidden browser Open hidden browsers (Running in background)
New Browser window Starts a new session of the browser specified Starts a new session of the browser specified
Container It doesn’t act as a container with full selector, with activities inside of partial selectors It acts as a container with full selectors and can have activities inside the container with partial selectors

Use any one @KarthikBallary
if you are using navigating with Navigate to activity it will take you to the browser with that URL, and we need to use attach browser after that to make sure the element is identified by the bot while executing the process
if open browser is used to open the new url, we can directly have all the activities within the open browser activity container
Kindly try this and let know buddy
