Screen Elements

Get Value

Retrieves text from the application, from the place indicated by control. Fill in custom internal application name. Drop the control on the activity. Declare the variable (type: string) and put it in Output part of properties window – it will store the retrieved value.

The text that you want to get from the control can be placed in one of its parameters (Value, Text, Name). Therefore pay attention to the Selected Element Properties window in Virtual GUI Control tab to apply the proper activity in the scenario.
