Some controls disappear when they lose focus, making it difficult to interrogate the control. This often happens with menus in applications. The delayed interrogation feature lets you set a countdown timer that starts when you click the bullseye. This gives time to navigate the application to the desired control - you will see controls highlighted beneath the mouse as in normal interrogation mode. When the timer elapses the control that is selected will be interrogated.
Enabling the delayed interrogation feature
- Select the Delay check box.
- In the popup window, change the time-delay setting to the number of seconds the countdown timer should use, and then click OK.
Performing delayed interrogation
- Click the bullseye.
Result: The timer starts counting down.
- In the application, navigate to the control that you want to interrogate and
make sure it is highlighted.
Result: When the timer expires, Robot Studio interrogates the highlighted control.
