Type Password

This action can be used to send keystrokes in a control field that accepts text. If the identifier is set on a non-password field, the text will be seen as normal (no black dots).



  • Identifier: indicate a new UI element, or select from the already defined list of selectors

  • Password: a string value to be input in the identifier, the text will be replaced by black dots

  • Delay between keystrokes: milliseconds between each keystroke

  • Interraction Method:

    • Input_Simulation: will simulate mouse/keyboard actions for interaction with various controls

    • Low_Level: will trigger/act on controls using low-level API calls, such as SendMessage API

  • Clear Field: enable/disabled the cleanup of a field before the input of a text (True/False)

  • Press Enter: True/False

  • Use KeyCode:

    • True: each character in the text will be converted to virtual key codes(helps with legacy applications)

    • False: no character conversion


  • Display Name: action display name in your implementation project.

  • Wait Before: number milliseconds robot to wait before executing the action.

  • Wait After: number milliseconds robot to wait until moving to the next action.

  • Abort on Error: True/False

  • Retry Times: Specifies the number of times to retry an action if it doesn't end successfully. Default value 0 (no retry); Use -1 if you want to retry indefinitely.
