The resulting selected value (which is stored as a String), is output to an internally defined variable.

  • 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.


  • Output: set already defined variables as output, or define a new one.
