Automate clicking into a text box


#1

So, I am trying to automate clicking into a text box and then entering text. I have selected “click” and then clicked on the target but it says “time out reached when looking for element.” any ideas to fix this? TIA

This error means that the element is not found during replay. There are many possible reasons for this, for example a changing element id.

An easy to use alternative to the selenium “click” command is to use Xclick with an image or ocr text as selector.
