Error message: # Failed locating 1 item(s)
Screenshot or video: to simple
Attach a simple workflow from OpenRPA or NodeRED that reproduces the error/issue: justFileName.json (27.7 KB)
Simple case scenario:
a. FF (even empty page) with open “File Open” window
b. Win.Get_Element “File Name” created by “selector”-> “select menu” → point inside field
c. Assign “aaa” value to the item.value
d. Use “highlight” to check “selector” → ok
e. Save workflow (justFileName)
f. Run workflow → ok
g. Close Designer
h. Open Designer again
i. Run workflow → # Failed locating 1 item(s) on the win.get_element in my environment 100/100
j. “highlight” also does not work
k. Open “selector” and save it for compare
l. Use “select menu” and point “file name” field again
m. save second selector for compare
n. click ok. for “selector” refresh
o. use “highlight” → ok
p. save workflow
r. run workflow → ok.
up to next Designer restart…
Comparison of the selectors does not shows any difference (screen - sorry cannot upload 174kB, permanent error).
Did not find any “dynamic” parts of the selectors.
I disabled caching for recorder, opened the workflow and run with no change of behaviour → “Failed locating 1 item(s)”
I “refreshed” the win.get_element by “select” (rarely use “recorder”) and activity started to work.
Saved it, closed Designer and opened again → activity needs to be “refreshed”…
