Screenshot of notification bar

I’m just wondering if anyone knows if there is a way getting a screenshot of the notification bar at the top of the mobile screen. It doesn’t seem to be recognised as an element. I wanted to know if I could assess whether airplane mode icon was present or not?

I’m using the codeless record function at the moment to try and take a screenshot, but it can’t get it to include the notification bar.

Hello @raytoncb.

If you swipe down on the notification bar, there is a chance the element will be recognized and you’ll be able to take a screenshot using the ‘Take Element Screenshot’ element action.


And the result would be:

You can also use the ‘Is Airplane Mode enabled?’ action or the ‘Set the Airplane Mode state’ action to work with Airplane mode on your device.

Thanks for your reply.

Unfortunately, I’m using an S6 and when you swipe down from the notification bar, those icons don’t stay :frowning:

I’ll give the other way a try.

Thanks again. :+1:
