RPA Perform Click resulting in message box (issue)
I have a perform click in my automation, which when fired, it does perform the click but, it then gets stuck. When using the breakpoint, I can see it never highlights the Perform Click step. However, as soon as I close the message window I can see from the breakpoint that it then highlights the perform click as completed.
The problem is that I need to click OK on that message box to continue my process.
I have been unable to find a way around this issue, see attached pictures to try and explain further.
Edit: If i replace the click with pure JS this again fires fine, but when the message box appears the automation freezes.
The solution to this was to use a WaitForEvent on the Message box, the Perform Click was the setup of this event and the Fired output of the event points to what I had previously set as the True output of my WaitForCreate (a Perform Click on the Ok button of the Message box).
My guess is that the Setup action (my problem Perform Click) is stopped as soon as the Event fires, therefore it is no longer left hanging and the automation can continue from the Fired output.
