Introduction to the Interrogation Form

Updated on June 30, 2020

Beginning in build 19.1.34, the Interrogation Form provides the most common functions directly on the form. Robot Studio minimizes when you begin an interrogation, so that you can focus on the Interrogation Form and the application. You can rename controls, highlight controls, delete controls, modify properties, and test modifying target properties and methods directly from the Interrogation Form. Only when you need to perform the most advanced features, such as editing match rules or working with the Windows, Web, or Virtual controls tab, is returning to Robot Studio necessary.

The Interrogation Form also adds a new delayed interrogation feature. You can start a timer and then navigate the application. When the timer expires, the currently selected control is interrogated. This makes it easier to interrogate controls that hide automatically when they lose focus.

The following figure calls out two convenient features of the Interrogation Form.

You can still complete all of these tasks in Robot Studio; however, the Interrogation Form can save time and mouse clicks as you complete these tasks.
