Stopping all subsequent flows using IF in PA desktop


This might be a stupid question - I have been using the desktop tool for 1 week now and built a few successful flows, but I encountered the following challenge using the desktop app:

I have a display input dialog with a Yes/No answer followed by 100 + actions. I want to disable all subsequent actions if the input dialog is "No". Tried this using the IF condition but I must be missing something since I can't get it to work - would really appreciate someone chiming in with the solution for this one.

Hi @Braven11 


Could you put some message boxes and check if the outputs are coming out fine.

- The first Display message is to check what is returned from the selected option. It should show No.

- Then if SelectedItem is No, the second Display message should show "User selected No". This is to check if the Comparison is happening correctly.




If it is No then you can Stop the flow.


If still facing issues can you share some of your screenshots.
