Automate - Finding Onscreen Items Through Images

Sometimes you encounter buttons or fields that aren’t recognized by an interactive or web browser action, whether because it’s a Flash website or an application built in an unusual way. This bot can recognize images on the screen using a needle in a haystack functionality.

You can use this bot to :

  • Customize the action with a screenshot of the button (taken with Snipping Tool or something similar)
  • Find an onscreen image (Needle in a Haystack) and gather coordinates for it in order to click the middle of the button


 This task is compatible with:

  • Automate Ultimate 11.2 and greater
  • Automate Plus 11.2 and greater
  • Automate Desktop 11.2 and greater
