Type Into - issue

I’m trying to automate a website.
Currently, issue I have is:
When text is populated into the Phone field the page behaves like someone pressed the Search button or enter it at the end (automatically goes into the next page).
Is it any place in the Type Into activity where I can disable it?

Hi @OzogRPA

This is not the general behavior of the Type Into Activity.
Can you show us your implementation of type into with a screenshot.


Enable the following things

  1. Click before type
  2. Activate
  3. Target - Wait for ready - Complete

If possible maintain some delay in Delay Before and After with in the activity


can you try using set text activity instead @OzogRPA

can you show your property?

Agreed with you a 100%
Especially that the component test itself behaves correctly.
I’m extracting telephone from PDF using regex.
What I found is that before extracted string I have @ symbol and the second quote is a line below.
I think that one of those may cause an issue.
Do you know how to remove @ symbol and move second quote into top line?


provide this into type into out_PhoneNumber.Trim

Hey @OzogRPA

after tracking the solution I think you need way to extract the phone number without special character , you can try this regular expression to extract correct phone number

System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Replace(PhoneNumber,β€œ[^0-9 ( ) - ]”, β€œβ€)

Yes, I did that, with a different regex but it’s working.
System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Replace(variable, β€œ[^a-z A-Z 0-9]”, β€œβ€)
