pause (time in milliseconds) - Selenium IDE command

The pause command is a simple wait command and useful to delay the execution of the automated testing for the specified time. Note that the wait time is in MILLIseconds. So if you want to wait for 3 seconds, enter 3000.

Special feature: If you use pause | 0 or simply pause without any number then the execution pauses until the user clicks the RESUME button.
Pause 0 waits until RESUME is clicked

Pause Example

In this example the Selenium IDE will wait for five seconds (5000ms).
