Question

Element exists clause in Automation Anywhere

I have a scheduled bot to run a process and it encounters errors every now and then due to not being able to interact with a webpage element that is still loading. Currently I am using wait delays to let the element load, but is there a way for Automation Anywhere to wait for an element to appear?

 

Similar activities are available in other RPA tools such as UiPath/Power Platform.

Hi @nickrpadela ,

 

 

  • Use the Object exists condition to detect an object in a window. Select a window or variable to capture the object. Enter the amount of time (in seconds) to wait for this condition to be true, that is, for the object to be detected.
  • Use the Object does not exist condition to verify whether a specific object exists in a window, and then based on the result, execute actions. Enter the amount of time (in seconds) to wait for this condition to be true. For example, you can use the Object does not exist condition inside the Loop > While condition to make sure that the bot does not execute the next action until the object on the business application is loaded

Note:The Object exists and Object does not exist Recorder conditions support Chromium-based Microsoft Edge with Internet Explorer mode.

Enterprise A2019 is now called Automation 360.

Kindly check out the IF Package → Recorder

Hi All,

For those who are not able to find the option of “Object exists” 

It is there in Condition dropdown of “IF”, please find the below screenshot.

 

 

I hope it helped!
