How to select the date in calender kind of tool


I’d suggest you to use date function inside the “typeinto activity” rather than choosing the date manually. :slight_smile:


We have textbox in the calender section. But when we click the text box, it’s automatically opened the calender. So it means, the selection would be only by click the calender. Moreover, my app was inside the citrix …Please help

so your’e saying is even manually also you can’t enter the date directly into text box?

Yes…U are correct

oh…sorry mate then i don’t have any clue :frowning:
may be @vvaidya and @aksh1yadav could help you on this.

Oh…No worries bro…as u suggested, Wait for someone to help me on this

thank you for your inquiry.

(Assuming you are on the right month) You can use find text position activity.

Then assign the UiElement to a click activity.



@bala0402 Since you are said the calender is in CITRIX app and you can’t type into textfield unless u click on calender, one way you can do is considering each date as Image.

Go through below example where the user selects the Calculator Number keys as Image.
