How do I set a maximum timeout value in Playwright/test?


Sure, you can avoid waiting for the full timeout duration and return earlier if the timeout is less than 45 seconds. In @playwright/test, you can adjust the maximum timeout value using the setDefaultTimeout() method. This method is available in various classes like androidDevice, browserContext, and page.

Here's how you can do it:

// Set maximum timeout to 45 seconds

This sets the maximum timeout to 45 seconds (45000 milliseconds). Any subsequent operations will use this value if their specified or default timeout is shorter. They won't wait for the full 45 seconds and will return earlier.

But remember, changing the default maximum timeout value globally can impact other parts of your code that rely on Playwright's timeouts. So, think carefully before making this change.

In short, you can avoid waiting for the full timeout and return earlier if it's less than 45 seconds by adjusting the maximum timeout with setDefaultTimeout().


Thank you!
