Help with !TIMEOUT_WAIT / WaitForElementPresent

Hello, i am trying to use the instructions here: https://ui.vision/rpa/docs/selenium-ide/waitforelementpresent

My current JSON is found below. My problem is with this part… “Target”: “linkText=Received Inventory@POS=2”, because there is another link called “Received Inventory” and it wants to open that immediately as opposed to waiting for POS=2(second link).

Here is a snapshot of inspecting the link i am tyring to wait until it becomes visible. you can also see the link with the same name on the far left. Basically for the “linkText=Received Inventory@POS=2” to become visible you have to click a download button and then wait for the download alert bar at the top of the page (shown below highlighted in blue) and then you can click to download the report. I am able to get it to work by just putting in a long pause until it becomes visible but sometimes it downloads much faster than the fixed pause delay and would be best if i could download it immediately when it becomes visible. Please let me know if anyone has any other techniques i can try. If tried all sorts of ifs , gotolabels, and clicking the link based on alertDownload class (see screenshot) but I don’t know if i am implementing them correctly…I feel like if i had a different way to look for the “linkText=Received Inventory@POS=2” element i may be able to get it to work using my current method… thanks, brett

Hi, just to clarify: So the waiting fails because there is another element (at @POS=1) with the same link text?

A quick solution would be to use visual waiting (visualAssert). This avoids dealing with XPath and the whole HTML stuff :wink:

perfect! will give this a shot. thanks so much for your reply.
