Image Recognition package
The Image Recognition package contains actions that enable you to search for a user interface (UI) element in an application based on an image to automate a task in that application.
Actions in the Image Recognition package
- Exposed over Citrix
- Accessed using the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP)
- Developed using legacy technology
Image recognition is also useful when object-based recognition does not work or is unreliable. For example, you can use an image to search for the Close button in an application and perform a left-click operation.
The Image Recognition package contains the following actions:
|Find image in window||See Using Find image in window action.|
|Find window in window||See Using the Find window in window action.|
Logging and debugging
Navigate to C:\ProgramData\AutomationAnywhere\BotRunner\Logs\IR to view the captured application images. The folder stores a maximum of 10 source and target image pairs. When the maximum is reached, the oldest image pairs are overwritten with new images.
When you record a task in secure recording mode, the Preview window temporarily shows an image of the captured area. This image is hidden after you navigate away from the Bot editor window or refresh it.
A user with admin privileges must enable this setting. See Manage settings.
