Manually setting the name of an element using variables

I open a window in my ERP system by using a mouse click function, so the actual window element isn't picked up. The window element name also changes with the selection of a different element that I choose in a list at the moment so it can't be predefined.


Any help on maybe setting or choosing an element based on a variable or something that I can predefine?

Edit the selector to be less specific with the window title, or remove the parameter entirely.


Use the method demostrated here, but instead of editing the UI element selector, edit the Window selector.
