Unhandled promised rejection

Getting the following errors Xpath selector error: NoSuchElementError: no such element: Unable to locate element: {"method":"xpath","selector":"//span[text()="Shadd Anderson"]/../button[last()]"}

Been seeing this one throughout the course: UnhandledPromiseRejectionWarning: Unhandled promise rejection. This error originated either by throwing inside of an async function without a catch block, or by rejecting a promise which was not handled with .catch(). (rejection id: 1) (node:12324) [DEP0018] DeprecationWarning: Unhandled promise rejections are deprecated. In the future, promise rejections that are not handled will terminate the Node.js process with a non-zero exit code.

Looked to the community, no answer. Disappointing to see others with similar/same issues unaddressed.

Here is my solution:

setTimeout(function(){ removeInvitee("Shadd Anderson"); }, 10000);

Since the issue is with async - I had the removeInvitee() function wait 10 seconds before running. This allowed time for chrome to start up and add all of the invitees. Once "Shadd Anderson" was actually there, the removeInvitee() could then remove the name.

Also I used removeButtonForInvitee: invitee => By.xpath(//span[text()="${invitee}"]/../button[2])

Hope this helps! Good Luck

thanks! it really has worked!

After some research, found an alternative way by using wait until.

function removeInvitee(invitee){ found = driver.wait(selenium.until.elementLocated(locators.removeButtonForInvitee(invitee)),10000); found.click(); }
