!WAITPAGECOMPLETE vs Wait Time

Post by esullivan » Tue Dec 20, 2016 8:22 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?

Opening a Duplicate Thread (1.5 years later...!) instead of following up on/bumping your original Thread is not the way to use the Forum "a bit correctly"...! :roll:
And you opened that Duplicate in the 'Consultants' Sub-Forum, which can be "Legit" if you are indeed looking for a Consultant, but that doesn't sound like that's the case from your OP which is simply an exact Copy&Paste from your original Thread..., and you don't mention any way to contact you... (PM is disabled on the Forum...)
=> Can you delete that "Duplicate" if it is indeed like I suspect just a "desperate" Duplicate opened in the wrong Sub-Forum...? (Or mention clearly that you are looking for a Consultant (for Fee) and a way to contact you...)
You can still delete any Post/Thread, as long as nobody posted after you, Reason I reply in this original Thread and not in the Duplicate...

:arrow: And maybe if you had mentioned your FCI (read my Sig...) in this current Thread (like you did correctly in all your other Threads where I posted some Reply), then I would have replied in this one as well..., and you would already have had your Answers 1.5 years ago, tja...! :roll:
=> CIM...! :mrgreen: (Read my Sig...!)
- (F)CIM = (Full) Config Info Missing: iMacros + Browser + OS with all 3 Versions...
- I usually don't even read the Question if that (required) Info is not mentioned...
- Script & URL usually help a lot for a more "educated" Help...

+ Reply I just posted in the Duplicate Thread...:
