Use Electron Window

Use Electron Window

Building Block Header

The green input connector (top left) triggers this block to begin execution.

The green output connector (top right) is triggered when an Electron window is successfully used.

You can always change the header text of a block by double-clicking on it and typing in a new title.


You can choose to either define the source or select the “Element” option. By doing the latter, the Electron element locator will be limited to only work inside the source element.

Use occurrence

Select which occurrence of the Electron element to use, if more than one is found. Select “All” to iterate through all of the occurrences.

Not found

This green output connector triggers if the Electron element is not found before the timeout (see below). This is typically used to branch the execution flow or to explicitly fail a case by linking it to a Fail block.


Once an Electron window is found and the focus is set, this property contains a handle to the window. This can be used in cases where multiple windows are open during when running a test in order to direct other building blocks to use a specific window.

Default timeout

If the 'Default Timeout' property checkbox is not selected, then the timeout value will be set to 10 seconds unless changed manually. If the 'Default Timeout' property checkbox is selected, then the 'Default timeout' value selected in the flow settings (under “Max. run time”) will be applied.
