Need help to paste the image

I need to paste the image copied directly from the snipping tool. The html code shows the iframe for the box where I need to paste as as below.

After switching to iframe, I tried to paste the stored image using webelement- upload file and send keys. This all wrote the path of the stored image instead pasting it.

Pls guide me how can I paste in the given box area?

How about using the Robot to paste? Note you cannot be playing around with your mouse or keyboard at the same time as the Robot is running. If you are, then the Robot will lose focus on the canvas you want to paste on.

import java.awt.Robot
import java.awt.event.KeyEvent

WebUI.click(findTestObject(...)

Robot robot = new Robot();
robot.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_CONTROL);
robot.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_V);
robot.keyRelease(KeyEvent.VK_V);
robot.keyRelease(KeyEvent.VK_CONTROL);

WebUI.delay(2)

@grylion54 I applied above script. But it shows error below from step 18 onwards.

what should I keep in findtestobject as it is under ifame. Also do I have to keep open snipping tool open for robot?

It seems you have a spelling mistake in the statement:

WebUT.delay(2)

It should be WebUI instead of WebUT.

As for your <iframe> issue:

Hi @grylion54. Thanks, spell mistake has been corrected. Although, no image is pasted when executed. Pls check my script above from step 17. let me know if I made any mistake.

Don’t see one. Do you get an image to paste if you do the process manually using, CTRL + V?

@grylion54. if i keep open my snipping tool, I have to manually press. Now it is working for me when minimize it. Thank you so much.

You can do it manually if you cannot get the paste to work, however, CTRL + V done by robot should work. I use it regularly. I can suggest:

  1. can you do a setText on the canvas to ensure you are clicking on it (and it is the correct element)?

  2. perhaps you can add an <Enter> to the robot to simulate bringing focus to the canvas:

Robot robot = new Robot();
robot.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_ENTER);
robot.keyRelease(KeyEvent.VK_ENTER);
robot.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_CONTROL);
robot.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_V);
robot.keyRelease(KeyEvent.VK_V);
robot.keyRelease(KeyEvent.VK_CONTROL);
robot.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_ENTER);
robot.keyRelease(KeyEvent.VK_ENTER);

@grylion54 Hi there, I have again issue with uploading image but at different place.
Now I am trying to upload from the folder where I need to select the image. I tried with uploadfiles , looks it’s passed but the image is not uploaded. please check below error.

Your message is saying that it could not click on the statement:
WebUI.click(findTestObject("test result 2/Page_Test Procedure 0221/input_save step"))

And you cut off the rest of the error message.

yes, the last failed step is for uploading the image. I have question for step 32 to 37 where I try to select the image. web testing shows successful but image is not selected. once the image is selected I can upload it.

Do you have something, like a pop-up, over the element? Maybe you need to click elsewhere for the mystery element to disappear for a timeout and then continue with your script. You may even have multiple elements at the same level and you are not selecting the correct one.
