Hello Raphael,

you need to do it the other way round.

The timeout in a check is a maximum value. If your dialog only appears
after a second or two, the check for absence will succeed immediately!

Instead, you need to wait for the dialog to appear. Use a normal wait
for component node with "Absence" unchecked as follows:

+ Try
  + Wait for component (error dialog)
  + Throw Exception "Error Dialog Appeared" (or just log an error and
                                             close the dialog)
  + Catch ComponentNotFoundException (everything fine)

Of yourse you'll incur the maximum delay for the timeout in case the
dialog doesn't appear, but in that situation, that can't be helped.

Best regards,
    Greg
