Timeout for the navigate command

For now, the navigate command will load a page until the command reaches the "Page Load Timeout" on the Start browser, after reaching the timeout, you'll get an error "Timed Out receiving Message from Rendereder". There are some ECAC websites where the request may fail or slow down due to some instability on the website, but the IBM RPA is not able to cancel the navigate request Instead of failing, a new timeout feature should be added to the navigate command, if the command reaches the timeout, it'll return false, otherwise true. With this, you don't need to handle the timeout error after a request fails and proceed with the execution of the next commands in the script.

    There are 3 timeouts that you can configure:

    Execution timeout



    Time Span, Number, Text

    Timeout for starting the browser.

    Page load timeout



    Time Span, Number, Text

    Timeout for loading page components.

    Implicit timeout



    Time Span, Number, Text

    Implicit timeout to run the command.

    There is no other mechanism to handle navigational timeouts other than handling the error as you're doing.
