!WAITPAGECOMPLETE vs Wait Time

by esullivan on Tue Dec 20, 2016 1:22 pm

I have a relatively slow loading set of pages that I am using to scrape data. Initially I had problems with the script getting ahead of itself and causing problems by advancing too quickly. I initially tried the Wait feature and that helped a lot. I later tried the !WAITPAGECOMPLETE command thinking that it would be a more efficient way of handling slow loading pages. Unfortunately, it doesn't work as well as putting in somewhat arbitrary Wait commands. I would still get some advancement to the next page when the first page wasn't complete yet. Am I missing something with the WAITPAGECOMPLETE command or am I better off using the Wait command?
