I wonder if someone can help, as I can't work this out, I am wanting to use WebDriver Sampler in JMeter and am getting stuck working out a WaitForText.

I want to wait for "Complete" in the element //tr[6]/td[2]/strong, this is what I have, but it isn't working and I'm not sure why, hope someone can help:

I don't know what programming language you use, the below answer assumes default WebDriver Sampler language which is JavaScript.

You should implement your own custom Function like

var wait = new org.openqa.selenium.support.ui.WebDriverWait(WDS.browser, 10)
WaitForText = function() {
    var text = WDS.browser.findElement(org.openqa.selenium.By.xpath('//tr[6]/td[2]/strong')).getText()    
    return text.equals('Complete')
wait.until(new com.google.common.base.Function(WaitForText))
