Global wait time for Objects

Post by jlowder » Mon Jan 09, 2012 10:53 pm


I'm developing all of my automation in Visual Studio and would like a means to increase the wait time for objects globally. I'm working with one particularly annoying dialog that varies in it's object load times and instead of adding a value at the end of every FindSingle, I'd like to add one "Global" value. Is this possible?

You can use
Ranorex.Adapter.DefaultSearchTimeout = new Duration(yourDuration);
to set the default search timeout.
The timeout value set to this property is used for searching when implicitly casting a path (in its string representation) to an adapter variable like:
Button button = "pathToButton";
You can also use
Adapter.TimeoutFactor = 0.5;
to multiply all timeouts of find operations with the specific value.
