Delay VS Auto-wait
We're working with older software and finding long load times to be a problem while using TestComplete. We're using delays and auto-wait to manage the issue, but I'm still foggy on the difference between the two, and more specifically -- which situations are better suited for the use of each option. I don't have a programming background, and I'd appreciate any clarification anyone might offer on this.
Thanks in advance.
I don't have a programming background either but to my knowledge.
Auto-wait waits until the action can be preformed (up to specified time).
So when you set auto-wait to 40s and after 10s its ready TC will continue with the test,
Delays waits the specified time and no more no less.
So when you set delays to 40s and after 10s its ready TC will wait for another 30s.
