must_be_waited_until(expected_condition, *, timeout=None, extra_args=())

The method can be called to set an explicit wait (see https://selenium-python.readthedocs.io/waits.html#explicit-waits) on the underlying element so that it is considered available when the expected_condition is met.

Parameters
  • expected_condition (Callable) – a callable that will take a locator (a tuple of (by, path)) as first argument

  • timeout (Optional[int]) – wait timeout (will be Selection.default_timeout if no argument is passed)

  • extra_args – extra arguments to be passed to the expected_condition callable

Returns

self, meaning this method can be chain called

must_be_waited_until_not(expected_condition, *, timeout=None, extra_args=())
