Working with interrogated controls: the More menu

When working with controls on the Interrogation Form, additional functionality (such as highlighting a control or refreshing match rules) is available under the More menu, next to the Control Name field.

Highlighting a control

Perform the following steps to highlight a control so you can identify it. To use the Highlight feature, the control must be currently matched.

  1. From the Control name drop-down list, select a currently matched control.
  2. Click the More menu and then click Highlight.

A box briefly flashes around the selected control.

Refreshing matching

If you change match rules or other properties, or a control is not currently matching, you can refresh the matching to make Robot Studio rematch the control.

  1. From the Control name drop-down list, select a control.
  2. Click the More menu and then click Refresh Matching.

The matching status of the control is updated (if it changes).

Deleting a control

To delete a control, select it as the current control. If the control is used in an automation, you receive a warning that automations can get broken, giving you an opportunity to cancel the deletion.

  1. From the Control name drop-down list, select a control.
  2. Click the More menu and then click Delete.
  • If the control or any of its children are not used in any automation, you are prompted with a simple confirmation message. Click Yes to delete the control.
  • If an automation does use the control or any of its children, you receive the following message. Clicking Yes can break the listed automations.
Confirm delete

  1. From the Control name drop-down list, select a container control.
  2. From the More menu, select either Add Menu Items or Add Context Menu Items.
