Hi all & Dan,

What's the trick to getting Webdriver to wait until a page is fully loaded. This  example is of a website which has been giving me a problem all morning and maybe you can see it taking a while to load when you test this example (if you even have to test it since you might know why without testing)


   SplashTextOn('Notice', 'Loading Website ... ',500,150,default,default,33,'Arial',14)
        _WD_Navigate($sSession, 'https://www.tutorialspoint.com/html/html_frames.htm')
        _WD_LoadWait($sSession, 300,40000)

Before the 40 seconds it moves on but the page isn't fully loaded


Strange thing is that this doesn't seem to work right either (as far as I understand)

Func ExampleNoLoad()
    $iResult = 0
    HotkeySet ( "+{ESC}", "_Exit" ) ;+shift !alt ^ctrl #winkey
    $hTimer = TimerInit()
    SplashTextOn('Notice', 'Loading Website ... ',500,150,default,default,33,'Arial',14)
        _WD_Navigate($sSession, GUICtrlRead($XpathUrl))
        While $iResult = 0
            $iResult = _WD_LoadWait($sSession, 300,3000)
            ConsoleWrite("-Waiting " & Round(TimerDiff($hTimer)/1000,1) & @TAB & "Failed->" & @TAB & "$_WD_ERROR_Timeout=" & @error & @CRLF)
EndFunc ;==ExampleNoLoad
Func _Exit()
    ConsoleWrite("Started Func _Exit()" & @CRLF)
EndFunc   ;==>Exit

The above code loops and checks every 3 seconds for a _WD_LoadWait success but until that happens it prints out every timeout failure error to the console. Strange that it keeps displaying 0 as the timeout error yet the top left of chrome is still showing the tab is loading and it doesn't seem to make a difference or move forward after the tab loaded.

Thanks for all help and tips.

      I am trying to hit the Return key without having to use the Send keys. I have the following code and its not hitting the Return key. Am I missing something?
      ; Press Return $sAction = '{"actions":[{"type": "key", "id": "keyboard_1", "actions": [{"type": "keyDown", "value": "\uE006"},' ; Pause $sAction &= '{"type": "pause", "duration": 500},' ; Release Return $sAction &= '{"type": "keyUp", "value": "\uE006"}]}]}' _WD_Action($sSession, "actions", $sAction)

      I'm having an issue with my html paginated table. The script work as expected. It reads the html table and clicks on the Download button. However when it clicks on the next page its not iterating the items. instead it goes to the next URL from the spreadsheet and then iterates through the html table clicking the Download button and so on. Not sure why its doing that. I want it to click the next page and then continue iterating then after it has reached the end of the pagination go to the next url in the spreadsheet and repeat the process. Below is my script. Any help is appreciated 🙂
