"verifyElementNotPresent" in Selenium RC

I want to use a while loop in selenium RC and command : "verifyElementNotPresent"

Let's say for this scenario: while an element or text is not present in the page, the script to click on a button or to type on a field.

1. If I write like this: while(selenium.isElementPresent("id=ui_user")); is for "verifyElementPresent" and the script can't make difference between: "verifyElementNotPresent" and "verifyElementPresent"

2. If I write like this: while(verifyFalse(selenium.isElementPresent("id=ui_user"))); can't compile the code because Eclipse tell me: "Type mismatch: cannot convert from void to boolean. The method verifyFalse(boolean) from the type SeleneseTestCase is deprecated"

Example: while(verifyFalse(selenium.isElementPresent("id=ui_user"))) {
selenium.type("name=username", "UserTest");

So, how can I resolve this?

Thank you!
