Selenium wait until document is ready


Can anyone let me how can I make selenium wait until the time the page loads completely? I want something generic, I know I can configure WebDriverWait and call something like ‘find’ to make it wait but I don’t go that far. I just need to test that the page loads successfully and move on to next page to test.

I found something in .net but couldn’t make it work in java …

IWait<IWebDriver> wait = new OpenQA.Selenium.Support.UI.WebDriverWait(driver, TimeSpan.FromSeconds(30.00));
wait.Until(driver1 => ((IJavaScriptExecutor)driver).ExecuteScript("return document.readyState").Equals("complete"));

Any thoughts anyone?

Try this code:

  driver.manage().timeouts().pageLoadTimeout(10, TimeUnit.SECONDS);

The above code will wait up to 10 seconds for page loading. If the page loading exceeds the time it will throw the TimeoutException. You catch the exception and do your needs. I am not sure whether it quits the page loading after the exception thrown. i didn’t try this code yet. Want to just try it.

This is an implicit wait. If you set this once it will have the scope until the Web Driver instance destroy.
