    In the following webpage "http://www.rpachallenge.com/" the position of text fields changes dynamically after clicking submit button.  Help me in automating the webpage for at least 5 excel records.

    It used to be here, updated some selectors and reuploading.
    Also if you are using Chrome, you can just use xpath and it will be much faster and cleaner.

    Hello Andrey,
    thank you very much.
    I tried it as you mentioned below with XPath. Here my result:

    rpachallenge result
    In comparison to my results with Selenium here very fast.
    Best regards

  • 9.  Some more thoughts: As long…

    Posted 10-16-2018 14:02
    Some more thoughts: As long as you can manipulate path this way - it is fine, you can do it in BP. For example, in selenium, this is just one xpath away: '//label[text()=""First Name""]/../input', in UIPath it is also possible to find right field with one selector. When path becomes more unpredictable, you will have hard times finding your elements in BP, however I can think of a few more tricks. If you compare it with UIPath (rpachallenge was originally created for their challenge), they have about the same speed by default, however UIPath has an option to remove sendkeys delay (nice to have, but might lead to problems in some cases).  It is also possible to complete it in like 2 seconds executing JS directly, but it is more like cheating.
