Select Item activity won't work

Please assist I have been trying to make this work without success, ‘select item’ activity does not select from the drop down list, it gets there and it gets stuck

Hi @Anelisa_Bolosha1 ,
Can you share your error,
an Have you edit default selector of activity



Welcome to UiPath

Make sure u have reliable selector in the activity


Try with normal type into and click activity if select item is not working in some cases

As in some websites doesn’t support select item as you have experienced now

  1. Use type into activity

  2. In its properties : Emptyfield enabled as true
    So tht existing data will be cleared

  3. Pass the item name u want to select as a string
    May be first few characters alone between double quotes

  4. Next have delay between keys for type into, such that it types exact option

  5. use click activity m, indicate on that element from drop-down

  6. Make sure you go with reliable selector attributes

Now it will try to type in first few characters and once reached will click on it
It’s same like how we do manually with keyboard and mouse

Refer this if u need more insights

Cheers @Anelisa_Bolosha1

Hi @Nguyen_Van_Luong1 ,
Please see the error I am getting below:

Hi @Palaniyappan , it’s the select item that is working, it was working before I am not sure why it’s not now I have tried with editing the selector

I’m using studio version 2020


May be select activity doesn’t support that element, you can try type into activity.

properties : empty field enabled as true

It does not type, you can only click and select the option from the drop down :

Hi @Anelisa_Bolosha1 ,
Error run time
have you see robot running, when it select
I think page load when it select, You can check page load success,
Check delay before select

Okay the delay time it does work, I increased it to 0.5. Thank you

Cheer @Anelisa_Bolosha1 ,
But sometime it can be <> 0.5, maybe 0.2-> 0.5 waste, or it’s >0.5, maybe 0.8 ->0.5 false
but edit time delay before will success in almost case,
seldom, some case website is lack of stability
You can check page load success or elements exist to most success
