Times (number of loops) - Selenium IDE command

The times command is used to create a loop that executes the proceeding commands n number of times. The input is the number of attempts a times control flow loop will execute the commands within its block.

The ${!times} internal variable has the number of the current loop. This is similar to the ${!loop} variable that is used for external loops triggered by the LOOP button.

This command will be available with the RPA March 2020 update (V5.5.x)
