Test Timeouts

If you receive a timeout, it could come from the testing framework you are using, or from WebDriver. For example, if you use WebDriverIO with Mocha, there is a default timeout of 10 seconds.

Test Framework Timeouts

Test framework timeouts can be resolved by increasing the timeout option specific to your test framework.

Here are some examples for WebDriverIO, which supports various testing frameworks:

WebDriverIO with Mocha Example:
// wdio.conf.js
exports.config = {
framework: 'mocha',
mochaOpts: {
timeout: 90000

WebDriver Timeouts

WebDriver timeouts can be increased via the timeouts capability.

The following WebDriver timeout defaults are used:

capabilities = {
timeouts: {
script: 90000,
pageLoad: 300000

Additional information on WebDriver timeouts can be found here.

Can't Capture Snapshot with cropTo

When using the Snapshot command, if you can't crop the target element with cropTo and the element isn't scrollable, you can use the scrollAndStitchScreenshot option. For example:

await browser.execute('/*@visual.snapshot*/', 'Home', { scrollAndStitchScreenshot: true });


If the target element is scrollable, the cropTo option may not capture a complete screenshot.
