Unfortunately, Ranorex implementation of xpath does not know expression "contains". In a theory, it should be enough to use xpath like this:

Code: Select all

//img[@alt = 'Loading...' or @src~'busy' or @alt = 'Processing...' or text = 'Please wait ...']
However, it would be helpful to add some more elements before 'img' element. The shorter the xpath is, the longer it may take to find the element during runtime. And if the element appears only briefly, Ranorex may not have enough time to actually find it.
