Default Method Values: How to change them? [Delay, WaitForExist...)

Post by dugovic.milan » Fri Apr 03, 2020 2:24 pm

Hi guys. I wonder if I can change the pre-set Delay or WaitForExist values? I never use the default ones and it pisses me off, when I have to change them every time (not trying to solve this over code tho) Thanks

Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but you can adjust all timeouts or find operations with a multiplier:

So if the default timeout for Waitfor action is 5s, and I am using a 2.00 multiplier, then the real timeout would be 10s (doubled).

Also you can use a variable for the waitfor timeout if needed

hope this helps

This increases the "timeout" value, not the values of respective methods per se, which doesn't solve my problem. I'm looking for the changes in action table, not for the changes in element's properties. Maybe an idea for user voice?

Perhaps I am misunderstanding your question... Are you talking about the 'timeout' property for a WaitFor action or something else?

The timeout multiplier affects the timeout property on a waitfor action as well as timeouts for elements. A waitfor action with a 5s timeout (default) while using a 2.00 timeout multiplier will wait for 10s as expected. This waitfor timeout is not tied to finding an element.

Uservoice may be the best route if this is not quite what you are looking for

hope this helps
