Simulate Click Check Not working


I have added some click activities inside my project with Simulate Type =“Check”, It was working fine before but suddenly it stops working. It is only working after making Simulate Type=“Uncheck”.
Same project code is working on another system with same configuration and same ui path version.

Ui path version:- 2018.1.3
Community Edition
MS Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

Has anyone had this problem before or know how to work with it?

simulate click tries to click as soon as the page is loaded. If the page is taking time to load completely it fails in that scenario.
Can use delay to ensure it works correctly always.

@vikrammahit,Set the property in Target waitforReady=Complete

Target waitforReady is already set to Complete

Are you performing simulate click using Typeinto activity

No , only for click activities

Not working after adding delay also.
Highlight Element able to highlight perticular control but unable to click on that if simulate click =True

I think I had a similar issue. The robot that was working 2018.1.1 failed in 2018.1.3. I had to change all IE clicks from SimulateClick to SendWindowMessage.

Hello Dom,

Thanks for the suggession, but my project contains more than 100 click activities.
Is there have any other option.

Hi @vikrammahit,

Starting with 2018.1.1, you can change the properties for multiple activities at one time, by selecting all desired activities (by holding Ctrl while clicking activities). The shared properties between the selected activities will be displayed in the properties channel. Then you can, for example, check SendWindowMessages, and the change will be applied to all selected activities.

Hope this helps,


Hello Cyril_kuhns,

Thanks for sharing this helpful feature of UiPath 2018.1.1 with us.

My project consists of multiple xaml files, is there have feature of ui path for setting any control property on project level, so that will be more useful for us.

Guys can we gather more details about this issue. We are not able to reproduce it in our environment.

  • share a workflow
  • share logs (low level tracing)

@vikrammahit “Same project code is working on another system with same configuration and same ui path version.” can you please enable low level tracing and share logs ?


If you don’t know how to collect traces, please follow the steps in this post:

Hi Andrei,
I am facing similar issue of “Simulate Click” Check not working anymore.
IE Version : 11.1358.10586.0
OS Version : Windows-10 Pro 64 bit
UiPath : 2018.1.3

It seems the issue is fixed in 2018.2.0-beta.11.
I just tried today and Flow is working expected as it used to be prior to 2018.1.3 update.

Hi @balu

Could you share some details about your project? Was it working before and stopped?
Could you collect the information mentioned in previous posts of this topic? It would help debug the issue.

Sharing your problematic workflow would be helpful as well.
