Is there a way to create a promise that just will click a button if it appears?

I have a web app that has a pendo guide injected into it. I unfortunately cannot turn these off so I have to handle them as they appear.

Is there a way to just create something that sits and waits for an element then only clicks it if it appears? In my case the element may or may not appear

You could do it a number of ways. You can use the or() method of a locator: https://playwright.dev/docs/api/class-locator#locator-or Or you can use await expect(pendoLocator).toBeVisible() in a try ... catch to catch the exception and continue if it doesn't appear


thank you! I'll give it a shot today and report back

I have solved similar with listening to IFrame navigation events
