How can I avoid an error if there is a $ character in Xpath in the Web element?

I am in charge of the verification of this tool now.
When using the WEB element library on the WEB screen you want to operate automatically, an exception error occurs if there is a $ character in Xpath. Do not you know how to avoid this problem? Are there any improvement plans for this problem in the product development?
The verification environment is RPA Express 2.0.4.

Hi @patent_atanaka

Yes, we have plans to solve the issue with the dollar sign later this year.
For now, please use this workaround:

  • save the XPath to a string variable
  • use the variable in the Web element action


Hi ashapkina

Using a string variable works fine!
Thanks a lot.
