Screen package

Use the Screen package to automate the process of capturing screenshots. Using the actions in this package, you can capture an area of an application window, the entire computer screen, or an active open window and save it in a specified location in an image format.

Actions in the Screen package

The Screen package includes the following actions:

Action Description
Capture area Captures specified area of an open application.

See Using Capture area action

Capture desktop Captures an image of the full desktop.
  • In the File path to save image field, specify the path where you want to save the captured image.

    The following file extensions are supported: png, bmp, jpeg, tiff, gif, and wmf.

  • Select Overwrite file check box to overwrite an existing file with the same name.
Capture window Captures screenshots of an open application window.

See Using Capture window action

Secure recording

When secure recording mode is enabled, bots do not display the target object images after capture. This ensures that sensitive data is not shown.
Note: Although the bots do not display the target images after capture, the images are still stored in the Control Room because they are required to run the bots.

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.
