Find and Get

Find and get building blocks are used to find images and text as well as get text and numbers from the screen.

Finding images and text

The Find image and Find text blocks are used to find an image or text on screen that is known in advance.

Getting text and numbers

The Get text block is used to get text from the screen that isn’t known in advance. Formatting and filtering rules can be applied so that for instance only text which is formatted as “Status: [TEXT] today” and which starts with “Green”. See the Capture text on screen lesson for an example of how this works.

The Get number block is used to get numbers from the screen that isn’t known in advance. Formatting and filtering rules can be applied so that for instance only numbers which are formatted as “Price: [NUMBER] USD” and which are less than or equal to 1,500 are retrieved. See the Use Numbers and Variables video for examples of how this works.

Selecting text

The Select text block is used to find and select text on screen using the mouse pointer. See the Capture text on screen lesson for an example of how this works
