selenium two xpath tests in one

Question :

selenium two xpath tests in one

I try to combine check for two scenarios:

If startupcheck fails we get a try again button:

el = WebDriverWait(self.driver, 10).until(
  EC.element_to_be_clickable((By.NAME, "Try again")))

Or startupcheck succeed we get a pin enter request in a custom object:

el = WebDriverWait(self.driver, 20).until(
  EC.element_to_be_clickable((By.XPATH, "//Custom/Edit")))

How can this be combined into one check without having to check for both:
I tried the following:

check = WebDriverWait(self.driver, 20).until(
    (By.XPATH, "//Custom/Edit") or (By.NAME, "Try again")

But only the first or statement is checked.

Answer #1:

You can club up combine check for both the elements using OR clause through a lambda expression as follows:

el = WebDriverWait(driver, 20).until(lambda x: (x.find_element_by_name("Try again"), x.find_element_by_xpath("//Custom/Edit")))

An alternative solution will be:

el = WebDriverWait(driver,20).until(lambda driver: driver.find_element(By.NAME,"Try again") and driver.find_element(By.XPATH,"//Custom/Edit"))

As an alternative you can club up combine check for both the elements using the equivalent as follows:

el = WebDriverWait(driver, 20).until(EC.element_to_be_clickable((By.CSS_SELECTOR, "[name='Try again'], Custom>Edit")))
