Automating website testing with AutoIt

2 posts in this topic

Hello,

I am quite new to AutoIt and still trying to get a sense of what it is capable of.

One of the major reasons I downloaded AutoIt is because I was told it is capable of recognizing web elements and conduct various actions with them. 2 small examples:

1. Recognize text boxes / other inputs in a web based form (e.g. registration form) and be able to work with them.

2. Recognize other elements in the HTML (e.g. a "Download" button).

Checking a website with the info tool, I noticed it does not recognize elements within the page itself.

Can someone please enlighten me and tell me if what I need is possible, and if so - how?

Thank you very much,

NormalAnomaly

AutoIt can use an application's COM Object interface, if it provides one. MS IE provides a COM interface to the Document Object Model (DOM). Dale wrote a UDF of AutoIt wrappers around all this and the result is IE.au3, which contains all the _IE* functions in the help file.

Try out the example scripts under all the _IE* functions in the help file.
