TryScript "hanging" whilst using BDLT approach in Silk Performer

TryScript "hanging" whilst using BDLT approach in Silk Performer

TryScript may seem that it is "hanging" when attempting to carry out a certain action, i.e. BrowserClick(), even though the related element has appeared on the screen. 

However, the Replay Engine is waiting for the browser to enter into an idle state before proceeding to interact with the elements on the page and has not hung.

Although the page may look like it has finished loading, there maybe back end AJAX network calls being made through an open socket, that means the browser does not enter into an "idle state".

Two possible workarounds exist to address this,

1) Switch synchronization mode from AJAX to HTML using the BrowserSetOpton(BROWSER_OPT_SYNC_MODE, SYNC_MODE_HTML) function (ensuring to switch back to AJAX mode after the clicks have been made), :

2) If switching the synchronization modes from AJAX to HTML does not provide a solution to the issue, switch the synchronization time-out from the default 300,000 ms (mlliseconds) to a lower value, i.e. 1 ms, by including a BrowserSetOpton(BROWSER_OPT_SYNC_TIMEOUT, 1). Like the previous troubleshooting step, it is recommended that you switch back to the default value, if including the function addresses the issue, for example:

Both options have Active Profile settings that can be applied (SILK PERFORMER | ACTIVE PROFILE | Web (Browser Driven)  - Replay |  Synchronization). However, altering these settings will result in the changes being applicable script wide, which may not be a necessity.  Instead it is recommended to just change it for the sections of the script where the problems are occurring as shown above.
