Dealing with pages that have delay redirects in them

Hello.

How do I test a page that has a delayed redirect built in?

Thanks

Thanks for posting your question AlfredN.

There actually is a special eValid command for this: WaitRedirect

The underlying issue is, when does a JavaScript action (event) in the current page cause a new navigation...or NOT?

Here is the command description:

The tricky part is when to use, or not use, the NO_NAV tag

On this, sorry, the only practical answer is to try it both ways, knowing that surely one way will work satisfactorily.

The reason is that web page JavaScript can be built either way, and without analyzing the JavaScript in advance (which is beyond the scope of what eValid can do) you don't know without trying it.
