Syntac in Synchronisation -> Wait step

Hello,

when i enter a "2.5" (with point) in the wait step then it waits for 2.5 seconds

But:

When i enter "2,5" (with comma) then it waits 5 seconds.

 

Question. Why does it not create an error in this case?

 

Thanks

Hi OnlyOne,

 

I would say that you don't get an error as the "The time to wait" entry field for a Wait Step is expecting an Expression rather than simply a numerical value and 2,5 is an expression without errors.  After that it is down how the expression entered is processed by SyncSteps.dll.  I guess SyncSteps.dll crunches the expression entered looking to extract a numeric value and the current implementation is to return the last value for a CSV list.

 

Regards

 

Steve
