I am checking PageLoad time of website say moneycontrol, so its taking to much time to load.

Now I want terminate driver.get() if it passes 3 min next step will be driver.close() to close the session.



Appreciate help and suggestions.

  • Can you please elaborate your question ? what mean by terminate driver.get ? what will be the next step ?

You can set a page load timeout of 3 minutes for your URL:

driver.manage().timeouts().pageLoadTimeout(180, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
  • Does it will work for headless browser ?

You can use a explicit wait, it verifies constantly if your webe element is present and if that doesn't occur it pass to the next step

WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver(); driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(180, TimeUnit.SECONDS); driver.get("http://somedomain/url_that_delays_loading"); WebElement myDynamicElement = driver.findElement(By.id("myDynamicElement")); /// action

  • your description is about explicit waits, and then the example you gave is for implicit waits. Feb 2, 2018 at 19:30
