Click Element

This action performs a mouse click on an element in the page, based on the control identifier and/or on the CSS selector of that element. The click action is executed using Javascript, so it is only suitable for elements that know how to handle the Click event (such as buttons).

Note: for elements that can't handle click events, the standard Click Control action can be used.



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

  • CSS Selector: It is used to "find" (or select) the HTML elements more precisely.

  • URL: The URL link of the page containing the CSS selector.


  • 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.
