2) additionally there is a drag and drop functionality - how to achieve the same using AA features? Any other robust option other than drag and drop AA feature?

Hi @Deepak Guleria​ ,

 

There is a Web Automation Package which operates on the principles of Selenium that contains the Click and Drag Feature.

 

Could you give that a try and let us know if it works out for you?

 

Kind Regards,

Thanks Ashwin. Web automation package , could not get the page session and run the javascript to drag and drop. Have you tried something similar specially for drag and drop or any other alternative.

Hi @Deepak Guleria​ ,

 

  1. Usually for date pickers i would try and type into a text field next to it. Sometimes you can update the URL with the required date also.
  2. Drag and drops, I would see again if keystrokes are possible to automate.

 

Bonus: Not sure what application it is but you may be able to switch back to a legacy version with a simpler UI for automation.

 

Good luck it sounds like a tricky automation piece.

Thanks both. Typing was not an option, had to use javascript. But to make it dynamic was another challenge which was solved later on. write script to variable , with date part as variable within this variable.

then write to a file with script content and then run browser on script. Did the job.
