Simulate mouse scroll / scroll without using scroll bar

Cant you make a sequence, that click the dropdown and picks the selector that matches the first one in the list?

Or click the dropdown and use tab or up key with typeinto or send hotkey to move to your needed selection.

The application I am working is not a web application and neither it has any scroll bar. I only option is to scroll using the mouse. How can i move forward ?

Hi @Rajasatish,
Would some similar solution to the one suggested below help you:

Hey, I am also facing same issue with scroll up-down within IE. It have tried various methods, but it doesn’t really do the scroll but successfully execute the following activities mentioned after scroll (did it just for testing it out).
Task I am doing is open an IE browser -> scroll to a specific location on a page which is nothing but a link -> click on the link.

Kindly help

The recording doesn’t work either @Magali_Philippe because it doesn’t record scroll.

This is great! Tried it and it works perfectly for my use case (an app that won’t allow simulated clicks on hidden items…). Thanks.

so plz suggest me how to use this activity…

Thanks and Regards

try to use “set focus” activity, but u need an element to identify the item

As this topic is not closed I will deliver an solution nevertheless the thread is old.

First you can use the click acitivity for selecting the drop down.

You can then solve this with an alternative to scrolling.
Send hotkey: select ctrl. and write “f”
Then you can search for an object in that list and your screen will move to it.
Send hotkey : enter
or just close your search bar.
