Macro Doesn't Wait for Refresh to Complete!?

by viking on Fri Aug 23, 2013 9:39 pm

When a macro contains a URL link, e.g.
Code: Select all
the macro waits until the page has loaded before continuing.

However, when the macro contains a link that refreshes the page, the macro does not wait until the refresh is completed. For example:
Code: Select all
TAG POS=3 TYPE=A FORM=ID:mySearchForm ATTR=CLASS:refreshResultsLink
TAG POS=1 TYPE=SPAN FORM=ID:investForm ATTR=ID:yui-pg0-0-page-report28 EXTRACT=TXT
In this case, the EXTRACT occurs before the page has refreshed.

How can I make the macro wait until the refresh is completed?

Note that I need to refresh the page in a loop as fast as possible, so it would not be suitable to insert an arbitrary wait command.
