To know Captured Element ID

Hi Team, Just wanted to know the elements from webpage is being Captured by UiPath where it is being stored. For example if we capture any text box, then it shows caption name same of that element ID. So where that element ID is being stored?

Hi @mis2amit,

  1. Use “for each row”
  2. Use “Type Into” activity with values
    row.item(0) for first column value of the row
    row.item(1) for second column value of the row
    row.item(2) for third column value of the row
  3. Be careful with the selectors of the cells that you use. For instance Please find below screen shot

Check the tablecol and tablerow boxes so that you can give these numbers externally.
for first cell tablecol =‘1’ tablerow ='1’
for second cell tablecol =‘2’ tablerow ='1’
and so on…

Hi Vicky, If I was trying this method but was getting only webctrl idx.
When I was trying to check parentname i got this error that changes made the selector invalid.

My requirement is just to capture one element and following its element ID using for each loop fill the textbox from excel.
Automatically fill value in element ID 1 and so on.
