Wildcards in mobile automation


I was making a few tests with mobile automation and i was wondering if there´s any way to add wilcards or the use of variables in the selectors that uipath (or appium i guess) uses to identify the objects.

So far i´ve had no success.

Wildcards aren’t supported. The semantics of wildcards is geared towards selecting multiple elements and returning them all, while all the current components are working with a single target that is uniquely selected by using various selector combinations.

Variables are supported! So if there’s a list of names that are known beforehand, we can iterate over that list and set a variable with a value. That variable can be used in a selector (e.g. <mbl android:className='android.widget.TextView' text='{{name}}' />). Variables are supported at design time as well in MDM, but they need to have a default value in order for the selection to work.

I’ve tested on UiPath.MobileAutomation.Activities, 21.3.0-preview
