Working in the toolbox

Suggest edit Updated on November 10, 2021

The Toolbox contains the variables, components, properties, and events you can use to build and fine-tune automations in Pega Robot Studio.

The Toolbox contains components and variables, organized into logical sections. Properties, methods, and events for all components, including utility components (such as stringUtils), are accessed directly in the Toolbox.

You can easily search for and locate the item you need. Recently used objects display at the top of the Toolbox. In addition, you can right-click an item and add it to your Favorites, which are always handy at the top of the list.

The Toolbox displays on the left side of the screen, beside the Palette. Its content changes based on the type of project item selected (automation versus Globals, for example).

The Toolbox has icons that indicate whether an item is a variable (V icon), component (C), property (P), method (M), or event (E).
