Selenium IDE: Implicit Wait

Author(s):



Once the implicit wait is activated by the command or the button, the runner will retry a failing command until all the required elements are present or until the defined timeout is reached.

It is designed to :
Avoid the user to add waitForElementPresent before click, type, select...
Implement the implicit wait function available with Selenium 2 WebDrivers
Handle AJAX processing

The implicit wait can be activated globally by clicking on the hourglass button,
or by inserting the setImplicitWait function in each test case.
The original error is raised when an element is not found and once the timeout is reached (5 seconds by default).

New Selenium command :
  • setImplicitWait | timeout | |
  • Retry a failing command until all the required elements are present or until the defined timeout is reached.

    Example :
    Activates an implicit wait of 3 seconds:
    setImplicitWait | 3000 |

    Compatibility issues :
    This plugin is not compatible with some other plugins providing conditional and looping capabilities.
