Is there a timeout value on find()? if not can one be added

Asked by Tony May on 2019-12-03

Im my testing we have some text that flashes, when trying to match an image to this text it sometimes fails depending on timing. The exists() function has a timeout value that is user specified, is there a such timeout for find()? if not then can one be added to allow the user to specify a timeout for finding an image?

use wait() instead of find()

Hi RaiMan, I need to use find() so that I can get the screen coordinates of the found image for use in click, etc.

please consult the docs about the usage.

wait() does the same as find(), but waits for the image to appear

Tony May (tonymay) said : #4

Hi RaiMan, I see from the documentation that wait() returns the image like find() does? therefore I should be able to use wait() to return the found image instead of using find()?

Thanks RaiMan, that solved my question.
