Selecting Actions in the Workbench

You can select various 'Actions' in the Workbench based upon the object and control type selected.
Actions are allowed on HTML, . NET and Java Swing/AWT controls.

Actions allowed on HTML controls

The following Actions are allowed on HTML Controls:

1. Click
2. DoubleClick
3. Right Click
4. Left Click
5. SetText
6. AppendText
7. GetProperty
8. GetVisibility
9. GetTotalItems
10. GetSelectedIndex
11. GetSelectedText
12. SelectItembyText
13. SelectItembyIndex
14. GetChildrenName
15. GetChildrenValue

The next section describes in brief the options available in Set Text, Append Text and Get Property.

Get Text, SetText and AppendText

Get Text, SetText and AppendText actions are available when the selected object types are Text/Text Box,
Client, Password, Windows Control or Custom Objects.
While building your Logic, remember that the properties and relevant actions are controlled by the
'Configuring Meta Bot Screens' configured for the selected Screen.

• or Action type as 'SetText', you can use keystrokes option to emulate entering text using a keyboard.

Note: In SetText, 'Keystrokes' is selected by default when the Play Type is either 'Image' or

• Use virtual keyboard to enter certain special keyboard keystrokes:
• Optionally, select 'Mask' to encrypt the keystrokes.
• Enter the required text in 'Enter Text box'. Optionally, assign a variable to 'Delay'.
• Advanced Options : Provide appropriate 'Delay' between keystrokes in 'Advanced Options'.

Provide 'Wait time for the object to exist' to allow for object load time and ensure the logic does not
fail during play time.
If play type is set to 'Image' for the control, you can configure image Match and Tolerance values in

• A Match value defines the extent of overall mismatch allowed between Image1 and Image2;
Tolerance defines the extent of mismatch allowed between any two pixels under comparison.
Similarly, if the play type is set to 'Object' for the control, you can select your OCR engine and
configure the Tolerance values in percentage.


Use the 'Get Property' action when you want to search the objects based on their properties during play

When you select action as 'Get Property', you will be able to select properties names such as Object ID,
Name, Value, Class, Type, Index, Description, State, IsVisible, IsProtected etc based on the object control

Tip: Use the 'IsVisible' property to identify whether a specific object is visible or not. For custom objects,
you can achieve this by using the 'GetVisibility' action; refer the next section.


Use the GetVisibility action to build a logic based on an object's visibility during play time. This screen
area could be a custom object or an object with Play Type Image. The 'GetVisibility' action returns the
visibility status as True or False.
To add a 'GetVisibility' action in the Logic Editor, the object should be configured for Play Type 'Image'.

Tip: GetVisibility can be combined with conditional commands such as If.

1. Click
2. DoubleClick
3. RightClick

9. GetChildrenValue
SetText for Window Control - Use the action type 'SetText' for Window Controls. Select the entire
window and specify the action type.

Note: The Window Control for Play Type 'Object' uses keystrokes by default.

OCR screens

For screens that are captured using OCR technology, when you select play type as Image for custom
objects, you are allowed actions - SetText, GetText, LeftClick, RightClick, DoubleClick, and GetVisibility.

• GetText - When you select GetText for play type Image for a custom object, you can choose an
OCR engine to extract text while creating a Meta Bot Logic. You can choose an OCR engine other
than the one selected during screen configuration for optimizing your automation.
