Type Text

Type Text

This block starts typing a text at a specific location (row, column) on the green screen. You might use this block instead of the “Set Value” block if you want the extra option of including a command (e.g., Enter) within the text.

Building Block Header

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

The green output connector (top right) is triggered when the text has been entered successfully.

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


This is based on a row number and column number.

Text value

This is the text to be typed by the keyboard. It can contain tokens for field values.


This allows for capturing keystrokes into the text value. This makes it easy to use special keys and key combinations such as CTRL+C, ENTER, etc.

Text fields

These are fields that enable the use of external values in the typed text.

Error occurred

If “Type text” returns an error during execution, you can use this output connector to branch your flow.

Default timeout

If the 'Default Timeout' property checkbox is not selected, then the timeout value will be set to 10 seconds unless changes 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.

The Green Screen Recorder and building blocks are available with Enterprise plans.
