Some controls disappear when they lose focus, making it difficult to interrogate the control. This  often happens with menus in applications. Select the Delay option below the bullseye to set a countdown timer that starts when you click the bullseye. This gives time to navigate the application to the desired control - you will see controls highlighted beneath the mouse as in normal interrogation mode. When the timer elapses, the system interrogates the selected control.

Enabling the delayed interrogation feature

  1. Select the Delay check box.
  2. In the popup window, change the time-delay setting to the number of seconds the countdown timer should use, and then click OK.

Performing delayed interrogation

  1. Click the Delay bullseye. The timer starts counting down.
  2. Navigate the application to the control that you want to interrogate and make sure it is highlighted.

When the timer expires, Robot Studio interrogates the highlighted control.
