Sample Robotic Automation solution: Cancel event

Updated on September 10, 2021

This solution shows how to cancel an event based on conditional logic by using Pega Robot Studio.

Project items

  • Web application: WebBing - Start page =, Internet Explorer version 8 was used.
  • Automation: StartSearch

Automation details


This automation is triggered when you click the Search button on the Bing page. If the text in the Search text box (q1) matches the text box entry (Fritz), then the Clicking event is cancelled. Otherwise, the Clicking event is completed and the search begins.

Cancelling the Clicking event

You can cancel events such as the Clicking event by using automation logic. To expose the Cancel parameter, add the Clicking event to the automation and then click the up arrows at the top right of the Design block, as displayed in the following image:

The location of where to expose the Cancel parameter

The Cancel parameter accepts Boolean input. In the sample solution, the condition is set based on the Search text matching “Fritz”. If the string matches, a Boolean variable set to True and is sent to the Cancel parameter. This cancels the Clicking event.
