Pinned topic How to extract string where there's input error

‏2013-06-06T06:12:13Z |

How to extract the string that showing on the bottom screen (see attachment)? I couldn't extract the string without dismiss the input error (highlighted in red)  by pressing any key, but after dismissed it, the error message will be gone.

    Hi chinyeh,

    try using the OIA status property in screen recognition. This is what you probably have now:

    <oia invertmatch="false" optional="false" status="NOTINHIBITED"/>

    change this to:

    <oia invertmatch="false" optional="false" status="DONTCARE"/>

    This means that the macro is not waiting for the screen to fully display and populate.  Be careful though as it might cause unexpected results, ie. macro will try to run an extract action but the screen will not contain the desired field yet.

     

    See this link about screen locking.
