Identical windows and selectors

Hi,

 

I work with multiple (6) SAP sessions and have problem with focusing or navigating trough them. My issue is that PA does not distinguish windows and put every selector in that one SAP window. Also, some actions on one session require several seconds. Is there any way to do something else on session while waiting started action or to navigate to other session while waiting ?

 

Thank you,

Djordje

First, you will have to find some kind of distinction between the sessions.  Commands like, "Get details of window" can help retrieve window titles, handles, or IDs to distinguish between different sessions.

 

Is there any way to do something else on session while waiting started action or to navigate to other session while waiting ?

 

Absolutely.  Best use is Labels.  I do this because I download reports that take up to 5 mins and have the PAD go do other things while it waits for the report to download.  So, for my example, I will have 3 sessions that all do the same thing, but half way through is a button I click that takes 3 mins, and I don't want it to wait 3 mins each time for the next step; I would build it like this:

 

Main

Go to Label - StartSubFlow1

 

Subflow1

Label - StartSubFlow1

'run through first steps

Go to Label - StartSubFlow2

Label - Return to SubFlow1

'do last steps

Go to Label - Return to SubFlow2

 

Subflow2

Label - StartSubFlow2

'run through first steps

Go to Label - StartSubFlow3

Label - Return to SubFlow2

'do last steps

Go to Label - Return to SubFlow3

 

Subflow3

Label - StartSubFlow3

'run through first steps

Go to Label - Return to SubFlow1 #now it's going to go back and finish each session's second part

Label - Return to SubFlow3

'do last steps

StopFlow Successfully
