Modal Window Activate

Is there a way we can activate modal/child windows - like File Open dialogs and other application configuration dialogs?

When I use Activate Window, it cannot find any dialog windows. Also I loose focus to any modal window when I test run using the Studio editor - its window keeps minimizing and back after each command.

Hi Sudarshan, For now you can send esc or enter key Stroke to close that popup.

Hi Nataly. Thank you for the update. I tried current window but it did not work. I will wait on the update. Do you think the next release will be in the first week of April?

Yes, model/child windows are not recognized as individual windows, but as part of the window that invokes them. If activating the main window does not allow you to interact with the child window, you could activate the Current Window instead. Also, the Studio window blocking has been reported and fixed. Future versions of OpenBots Studio will automatically minimize the Studio window when running a bot.
