Set the default timeout for click commands
- Timeout: The Timeout value.
The value -1 will set it back to initial timeout of 10000 ms
When we want to extend the timeout of a command to postpone our test from failing because of timeout issues.
Scenario: In the following example we will use the 'SetDefaultTimeout' to extend the timeout for a click command to execute. We will use a click command on an element that does not exist on the page and also change the default timeout for this command to fail.
- Timeout (in milliseconds) - Will be set to 30000 in this example.
Step 1: Add command of 'SetDefaultTimeout' command with parameter Timeout=30000.
Step 2: Add click command on icon that does not exist on the home screen. In this example we will try to click an icon by the name 'text=Does_Not_Exist'
Note: The click command was trying to execute for 30 seconds (as we set in the Timeout) before failing.
