Meaghan Lewis describes the pros and cons of using implicit waits and walks through an example of how to use implicit waits in WebDriver test scripts.
- [Narrator] The implicit wait tells WebDriver…to wait for a specified amount of time…before throwing a no such element exception.…Because the default setting of waiting for an element…is zero, an implicit wait will be set for a time…greater than zero to expect the element to become available.…Implicit waits are called implicit…because they don't depend on a certain element state.…Instead, they just wait for a specified time.…The format to declare an implicit wait…is driver.manage.timeouts.implicitlywait.…
And the implicitly wait method takes two parameters.…The first is the time to wait as an integer,…and the second is the time measurement,…for example microseconds, milliseconds, or seconds.…Let's do a quick example of using an implicit wait now.…I'll open up the exercise file for this video…by navigating to chapter five, zero five zero two, start,…and I'll open up this example.…Once this project is open,…I'll go ahead and build the project.…
And now I'll focus on the test class.…So this is the auto complete that Java test class…
