Working in the Toolbox

Updated on October 19, 2022

The Toolbox contains the variables, components, properties, and events you can use to build and fine-tune automations in Pega Robot Studio.

The Toolbox contains controls and variables, organized into logical sections. Properties, methods, and events for all components, including utility components (such as stringUtils), are accessed directly in the Toolbox.

You can easily search for and locate the item you need. Recently used objects display at the top of the Toolbox. In addition, you can right-click an item and add it to your Favorites, which are always handy at the top of the list.

The Toolbox displays on the left side of the screen, beside the Palette. The Toolbox also displays in the Quick add dialog box that is accessed directly from the Automation Surface by double-clicking or by dragging a pointer from an execution port. The contents of the Toolbox changes based on the type of project item selected (automations or Globals or forms, for example).

The Toolbox has icons that indicate whether an item is a variable (V icon), component (C), property (P), method (M), or event (E).

  • Manage Toolbox

    Use the Manage Toolbox feature to add .NET controls to the Toolbox for use in your automations. Use this feature to customize the Toolbox to maximize efficiency and utility.
