Using Hover on Studio X

I can’t seem to figure out how the hover activity works on studio x. Has anyone tried this?

Hello Megan,

Please refer to the tutorial on how to use Application Card https://docs.uipath.com/studiox/docs/ui-automation and how to use the hover activity https://docs.uipath.com/studiox/docs/hover

The TLDR of it all could be summarized as such : Create a new project , add an application card , use indicate inside the the application card in order to indicate the target application and then add a hover activity and of course use the indicate target inside the hover activity to indicate the element that you want to hover over :slight_smile:

Also I added a small example that would hover over one of the buttons present in Office365 Excel ribbon HoverExample.zip (79.9 KB)

Thanks. I tried opening the example, but I get an error saying the project is incompatible with StudioX profile.

Also, after I use hover, how do I “click” on the drop down that occurs when hovering? I add a click activity after hover, but when I indicate target, it doesn’t allow me to pick the item I want on the drop down after the hover.

Hello, I have to ask what version of Studio are you using :slight_smile: Because i think I created the workflow with an unreleased version :smiley:

Also I managed to automated the described behavior using 2 clicks on the following test page : https://www.w3schools.com/howto/howto_css_dropdown.asp

It looks like I’m on studio 2019.10.1 The update channel is on Stable
