  • 1.  Write Stage not working

    Posted 03-22-2023 06:58

    Hi, Is there anyone here experience this even though I already put the navigate (focus then click) here before writing the date it seems after I have clicked the search button it does not take effect when I run it I still get the old date.

    please see below example but it can write the the date at first and seems working but after I have clicked the search button and checked the date still in the old date as stated in the below screen shot

    Hi Ann Fajardo - Make sure the Window is Activated at the start - I hope you are already doing that - Sometimes the input fields does require simulation key strokes to get working, You can write these dates through Navigate Stage as well - Focus on the Element - Take 0.2 to 0.5 of arbitrary pause and send Global send keys on the Root Element.

    Kindly up vote this as "Best Answer" if it adds value or resolves your query in anyway possible, happy to help.

    Hi Ann,

    As Mukesh proposes, it is always good with a waiting time between navigating and reading or writing. But, depending of the UI, I'd stick to slightly more generous values, such as anything between 1 and 5 seconds, sometimes even longer. This is of course depending on the application you are running and the speed of the network connection.

    Unrelated, but perhaps nice to know:
    As a general rule, I'd avoid keeping the default names of your actions. I also tend to avoid duplicate names. So the 'Navigate1' and 'Navigate2' stages could be called 'Focus and Click' and perhaps even the 'Write Date' actions could get better names. If you later run your process in production and inspect the log to analyze an error that may have occurred there, unique names will prove to be very handy, whilst duplicate names make it harder to find where things went south. 

    Happy coding!

    i have seen on few occasion that write stage input are not passed to target application . you can also pass a click spied in other mode(AA/UIA) post entering the date.

    plus touching another note on snip you shared  - as per Best practice- Read/write/navigate need to be followed by wait stages  :)
