limit for the "wait" function

Post by ilja19 »

Hi, I'm new to this forum. I love Actiona - its a really great software but I cant work around this problem:
My script is for web traffic automation, so I use the action "Pixel color" a lot. I set it up, so that it waits until the selected color shows up. But it happens quite often, that the Website doesn't load and so the color doesn't show - My script is now endlessly waiting until I reload the website. My question would be: Is there a way to limit the amount of time, the action waits for a color?
Thanks in advance, Greetings from Germany :)

Hi,

In the 'Common' tab, you can choose a timeout,
In the 'Exceptions' tab, you can indicate what to do if the timeout is reached.

Use the Pause under the internal area on the right side bar.

Hey, thank you all for your support. But the "timeout" function defeats the purpose of the "Wait" function. When I set a timeout, it acts like a standard pause before the action. I like the "Wait" function because it stops my script for only the time that my website loads. If my website now fails to load, I want to limit the time that my script waits, so it doesn't get stuck.

@augesrob - I don't know what you mean. Can you be more specific?
