Hi,
I'm working on a task to remove Move Mouse to Object Action along with X & Y co-ordination with some other suitable task. Reason behind this is, some times we face latency while moving the mouse to object with X  & Y co-ordination, due to this the task execution fails after the time out period.

Is there any alternative option to replace the above task? Please suggest.
Regards,
Karthi K

It depends on what you want to do next. You can use the interactivity 'press' action if you want to click an object. Or the interactivity 'select' action to select an object. There is also a move mouse to object action that does not need y-x number.

Yes, we do Press action as a next step. Our concersion is , is there any replacement for either Move mouse to Object or Move Mouse?. Any latency while move causing execution fail.

Is the failure caused because the mouse cursor was not moved to the appropriate location before moving on to the next step? If so, you can use the %GetMousePosX()% and %GetMousePosY()% functions to verify the current cursor location before proceeding. That may add some stability to the interaction.
