Manage Window Controls command

Use this command to capture Windows control properties for buttons, menu, tabs, tables, and boxes. Perform actions or assign the captured properties to variables. Also, simultaneously record actions that you perform.

Control Properties
The controls that are captured are displayed under Control Properties, which show the Control Type, Name, Value and its Location (coordinates).

Automation Anywhere can perform actions that use only standard Windows controls. If your application contains customized controls, Automation Anywhere might not be able to capture them.

This command supports the following capture controls:
