Using element exists to go 4 different directions

I’m very new to UI path but getting more comfortable. I am trying to view work items on a website and all have different commands (create, add, delete, remove) and it looks something like this:
I am using “element exists” to view the work item and when i click on the word “create,” I came up with this selector and named the variable “workItem.”
It was suggested that i use nested if/else statements to go down my 4 different paths but i need to differentiate between create, add delete and remove and perform a different operation for each. So the only thing that would be different for each selector would be the aaname. Is there code that would allow you to do that? i think the issue is turning the Boolean variable and have it look for string. I came up with something like this and tested, it did not work.

Welcome to the community!

Try using workItem.ToString.Equals(“Create”) if that doesn’t work try workItem.ToString.Contains(“Equals”)

Check this out too (Comparing Strings in .NET | Microsoft Learn)


If you are going to stick with the Element Exists Activity you’ll need to set the If Condition to workItem = True

If you are looking to use an If Statement on the Text found in Operation you should use a Get Text Activity and store that Text String to your variable workItem. Then use an If Statement with workItem.ToString.Equals("Create")

Thanks! the Get Text Activity worked perfectly!
