Exist activity waits for screen

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to validate whether a screen exists or not. This function is supposed to return true or false but it seems to be waiting for the screen instead. It shouldn't wait for the screen and just validate its existence.

What can I do instead? Is this a BPA problem?

Hi,

Please use "Screen Exist" activity instead of "Exist Element" activity.

Looks like using Exist Element in Cloud Studio doesn't work exactly like Desktop Studio. To use Exist Element in Cloud Studio is necessary to exist the window, otherwise, it returns timeout for the windows. The problem is to wait the timeout if there is a custom time for Automation Activities and not the usual 30s. I tried before using Exist Screen but didn't work, maybe some attributes were wrong.

Now is working properly. Thanks.
