This section summarizes the causes and solutions for the most frequently occurring errors among the questions received from users of Cloud BOT.

“waitForSelector timed out 100ms” error is most frequently asked.

Contents of the Error

This error message says "Waited 0.1 seconds for the target selector, but couldn't find it.”

Causes of the Error

Task’s timeout is set to 0.1 sec by default. If the operation target cannot be found, “waitForSelector timed out 100ms” error displayed.

Various cases exist, but most of errors occur when operating floating dialogs, menus, buttons, etc. Technically, these errors occur where the display is switched by asynchronous processing.

Solution #2

In some situations like immediately after the screen transition, extending the task timeout time may not solve the problem. In that case, you can solve it by inserting the waiting task for the required time.

Solution #3

BOT reads web structure and selects a selector. If the web structure changes, such as when content is added to the top area selected by the selector, the selector may be out of position and an "waitForSelector timed out 100ms" error may occur. In that case, the error can be resolved by correcting the corresponding selector position again in the BOT Editor.
