How to use Wait Attribute?

I’m trying to use the ‘wait attribute’ activity inside an ‘attach browser’ activity to wait for a certain UI element attribute to be equal to a string, but I’m getting an exception error below.

Wair Attribute has thrown an exception

Source: Wait attribute

Hi @markdgreat,

My friend :slight_smile: , I hope you are not using Internet Explorer browser for automation that’s why you got this error .

Please could you use, Internet Explorer 11 (preferably) and I am sure you will not get this error again

And I would recommend using IE11 as BOT that you create will run like a charm in IE11 with no behavioral issues.

Cheers mate - Hope that helps :slight_smile:

Warm Regards,
