Element exists - how to detect the browser crash or close

I’m using Element exists activity to detect the specific element on the browser.
However, in case the browser is just closed by a user or crashed I’m getting the same “False” result as the output of the Element exists activity. If I use the Try / Catch, I don’t understand how can I catch this as there is no excpetion in my understanding. Ideally I would like to throw an exception in case something is wrong with the internet browser (closed, crash, stuck etc.). Can anyone help with ideas on how to achieve this ?


Element Exists activity will give output as boolean variable. After Open browser, check for any element.
If it is True → then continue it.
False → Then throw error

Hi @MichaelK
Just Indicate the pop that comes after the browser gets crashed so if browser will crashed it wii give you true value otherwise it will give you false value.
Thanks & Regards

I just used the Get Attribute activity with the attribute “visibility” inside the Try/Catch. When the browser is closed it throws the system error. I find it’s quicker than Element exists activity.
Do you think it’s all right to use ?
