Use the Delay setting to add a timed delay in the TaskBot or MetaBot logic. You can introduce a delay between
operations within a bot. In the Object Cloning
command, Delay is used in the Set Text
When you use the Delay setting with the Set
Text action, the next step in the TaskBot/MetaBot logic is delayed. You should specify whether to delay for a
specific time period or for a randomized time period based on a range.
As a best
practice, configure Delay = 0 so that the Set
Text action accesses the Control Properties
and captures the text accordingly. Delays are dependent on the type of application
and its operating system responses. Use the Delay setting if
the Text Box performs back-end processes such as
the specified delay.
Automation Anywhere Enterprise provides keystrokes to the operating
system, which in turn passes them to the application. The application relays the
keystrokes to the control. If some of the keystrokes are not sent, the application
might be slow to respond because the control, application, and the operating system
will not be ready to accept the keystrokes. Ensure that you set the delay
accordingly so that the application accepts the keystrokes in
Configure Set Text without
Delay if the Text Box function
If you configure a delay of more than 0, the action does not change the
property but it creates keystrokes.
