How to check if SSRS report is ready in IE

Hi all,

I would like to know how I can check if a report from MS SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 (SSRS) is ready in ReportViewer after clicking a button to open it.

My steps are
STEP 1. Open a site with Internet Explorer
STEP 2. Click a button to open a report created by MS SSRS
It may take some time to create the report depending on the size of the data.
STEP 3. Once it’s ready, I would like to export it as PDF.

After clikc a button to open the report, I tried two. But they didn’t work.

  1. Element Exists in Do while
    If Element ‘Export option’ in SSRS header is not ready, wait 3 sec and check again.
    But the result was always false even the report was ready.

  2. Delay 3 sec, and select ‘Export option’
    UiPath could not find ‘Export option’ element.
    Selector Editor can validate the element and Highlight it.

If you have any advice, that would be very helpful.
