I have scratching my heads around this problem for two days. I have a test where I need to check if a spinner is not visible to the user. This is the first test of a series of tests, and until the spinner is not visible, the page elements are not displayed to the user.

I have been trying to implement a wait in order to wait for the to be invisible , but my tests seem to fail and the tests exit with a success code, however I can still see the spinner being available on the page.

I have even tried the dirty browser.sleep() method, but my tests doesn’t even wait for the sleep duration that I have given.

I have this given block of HTML

<div class ="loadingContent">
<div class="always-loader">...</div>
<div class ="first-time-loader">
    <div class ="text> Preparing the App just for you</div>
    <img src ="http://sqa.stackexchange.com/images/d92f6c4a.horizontal_loader.gif">

My test checks that img is not in the or is not displayed. I have a function that waits for this purpose

Try 1

  public waitForSpinnerDisappear(){
    let EC = .ExpectedConditions; 
    const condition = until.elementIsNotVisible($('[src="http://sqa.stackexchange.com/images/d92f6c4a.horizontal_loader.gif"]'));
    return browser.wait(condition,500000);



  let EC = protractor.ExpectedConditions;



public waitForSpinnerDisappear(){
  return $('[src="http://sqa.stackexchange.com/images/d92f6c4a.horizontal_loader.gif"]').isDisplayed()
    return !result;


All these conditions doesn’t wait for the spinner to disappear from the page and my tests exit with a success code

  1 scenario (1 passed)
  2 steps (2 passed)

[12:04:20] I/launcher - 0 instance(s) of WebDriver still running
[12:04:20] I/launcher - chrome #01 passed
Done in 19.54s.

I can’t provide the URL for the application since it’s an internal application but I can give the gist for the code in case it’s needed. My question here is what do I need to do more in order for the web page to load for the spinner to be loaded.

I have gone through the following SO post’s for reference but the solutions given here doesn’t work

Edit : After some more debugging, I believe that this is something related to Cucumber. I had the same code without Cucumber and my tests wait for the loader to disappear.

Can someone point me in the direction where the issue might be ?
