Solved!
Go to solution

Hello,

I need to insert a timeout on a while loop to exit this loop in the case of the device isn't able to answer.

How can I do ?

Best regards

Create a Local Variable:

Locals.StartTime

 

In an expression step before you start the while loop set Locals.StartTime = Seconds()

 

 

As part of the condition for the While Loop use: (Seconds() - Locals.StartTime) < X

where X is your timeout in seconds.

 

Hope this helps,
