Uploading all images from folder
How do I select all images from the folder to upload, instead of one?
It only selects one image, and I want the bot to select all of them, so I could upload all images at once.
Any ideas anyone? Can't find anything online :/
Define a resource "Files from directory" and select your
folder with images. That would create a list variable with
filenames and filepaths of all images found in folder.
After that simply use loop to go through that list and
upload all images where you want.
Thanks, but that won't work.
I need the upload process to imitated ctr+a combination when selecting pictures from a folder.
The website I try to automate has one button to upload and it disappears after selecting the image, but if you select all images it will upload all of them.
Then just use appropriate action to simulate
keys pressed. Just use "Type" action.
Can you elaborate on that?
I tried the method you mentioned before and like I said it's not working. Only the last image of the loop gets uploaded.
How do I use the "Type" action?
You dont need loop action, I guess.
When you open site and click on button that
opens select files dialog, simply use "type" action
to select all files.
Thanks so much for trying to help me!!! I tried the "type" action. It's not working :/
I think type action only works with browser input fields, that's why "open file result" is required just before opening the file upload selection window.
Hmm, yeah you need "Open File Result" action actually.
Just read what that action says in description and you
should be able to upload all files at once >>>
" Uploading file is performed in two steps: setting next open file dialog result with this action and clicking on element which triggers file upload, like "Upload" button.
You must always call this action before starting upload, otherwise BAS won't know which file it need to send to browser.
Use resource with type FilesFromDirectory to upload all files from folder and distribute them across threads."
Thanks again for your help, but I finally solve the problem using a loop and a list.
Just by mistake, I found this thread: https://community.bablosoft.com/topic/11372/bulk-image-upload
And it helped!
I was searching for few days and found this only now lol.
