Detect UI Elements


Uploads a screenshot and runs the element detection on the server and outputs the bounding boxes of the UI elements detected. Element text can optionally be read from the detections with the OCR setting. Typically used with Select box logic to dynamically select mouse click positions

Experienced tips
  • If you do not specify an Screenshot path, the process will stop and provide you with the following error. The "path" argument must be of type string. Received type object
  • If the image could not be found, the process will stop and provide you with the following error. ENOENT: no such file or directory
  • If your boxes are too small inside of the Select from UI elements command, try increasing your Padding
