Mouse and Keyboard


This activity simulates a mouse click in the place indicated by GUI element. Choose the type of click from the dropdown (click, generic click, generic double click, generic right click).
Fill in the application custom internal name. Drop the control on the activity.

NOTE: "ordinary" click does not give focus to the element indicated by control, generic click moves focus to the control.


NOTE: check Selected element properties in Virtual GUI controls tab: the "ordinary" Click will not work when parameter Clickable is False, so consider using Generic Click instead.
