How to wait for an element or for an alert at the same time

I’m performing a search and if the search has no documents, an alert will be displayed and if it has results, I have to capture results

How can I wait for either alert or Search results element.

    Try this generic wait code by passing both expected conditions

    public boolean waitForPageLoad(int waitTimeInSec, ExpectedCondition<Boolean>… conditions) {
    boolean isLoaded = false;
    Wait<WebDriver> wait = new FluentWait<>(driver)
    .withTimeout(waitTimeInSec, TimeUnit.SECONDS)
    .pollingEvery(2, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
    for (ExpectedCondition<Boolean> condition : conditions) {
    isLoaded = wait.until(condition);
    if (isLoaded == false) {
    //Stop checking on first condition returning false.
    return isLoaded;
