¿La mejor práctica para esperar un cambio con Selenium Webdriver?

After a click event I need to wait for an elements attribute to change before proceeding further (click event causes certain elements to move out of focus and certain others get focus via a JS)

After spending time searching for a reliable alternative to "waitForAttribute" (selenium 1 command) in web driver... I could get the below code to work. But I am not sure if this is the best implementation...

Any other better solution??

wait = new WebDriverWait(wedriver1, TimeSpan.FromSeconds(5));
wait.Until(webdriver1 => webdriver2.webelement.GetAttribute("style").Contains("display: block"));

Also, can anyone please share a link to how I can handle AJAX event changes using webdriver.

assertselenium.com/2013/01/29/webdriver-wait-commands has a nice listing of possible wait methods and how they relate -

Sugiero usar org.openqa.selenium.support.ui.ExpectedConditions.attributeToBe(WebElement element, String attribute, String value).


WebDriverWait wait = new WebDriverWait(driver, 5); // time out after 5 seconds
wait.until(ExpectedConditions.attributeToBe(someElement, "sort-attribute", "ascending"));

It's a recurring problem of Selenium. I am not sure about a "best" implementation existing. I believe it's largely depending on the situation.

Concerning AJAX-driven changes, I would generally use a waitForElementPresent or a waitForElementNotPresent depending on the changes the AJAX call will make on the page.

This will work, but only for situations where an element appears/disappears. There are many situations where an element remains visible but changes an attribute, which I think the OP was asking for, which these methods don't cover. - Vince Bowdren

You can use implicit WebDriver wait :

driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(10, TimeUnit.SECONDS);

An implicit wait is to tell WebDriver to poll the DOM for a certain amount of time when trying to find an element or elements if they are not immediately available.

Sorry, I don't think you understood my question. My elements attribute changes on a click event (driven by JS). I don't see how the implicit wait is useful here. From my understanding implicit wait is more relevant in case of elements being visible after an event. - Kir

I feel that using the WebDriverWait is pretty useful. One change you can make in your code is use -


instead of getting the style attribute.

You could use Thread.sleep like people have implemented aquí..You can use their implementations to relate to your problem.

    public void waitFor(Webdriver driver,,WebElement welElem, String attributeValue){
    int timeout=0;


I think you could implement something like this. I have not checked it but you get the idea.

I believe this whole while loop is what the "wait.Until" I posted above is doing. So I don't see the point of writing this explicit while loop. I suppose my implementation which is working is a lot cleaner - Kir

while(timeout<10) y eliminar if statement. Just a note to your code. - Aleh Duhi
