Image Exists Activity TimeoutMS


#1

Hi,

The default TimeoutMs is 3 seconds, instead of that it taking more than 8 sec to return false. Eventhough we set the TimeoutMS as 3sec.

Please advise.

It takes 8 seconds because FindImage or ImageExists works like this:

  1. Try finding the element
  2. Try finding the image

If you have timeout t and FindImage starts at t-1 UiPath will wait for the image to be searched on the entire screen, which in this case takes 8 seconds. It is ok and intended behaviour.
