Is there a function that I can use to click on an IE object and get it to return the object id?

I want to make a script that will tooltip or msgbox the identity of an object like a drop down box or a textbox so I can use the info to make another script. Does anyone have a tool like this?


Get Scite to add a popup when you use a 3rd party UDF -> http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/scite/docs/SciTE4AutoIt3/user-calltip-manager.html

> identity of an object like a drop down box or a textbox

Are you talking about a drop down box or a textbox created in a AutoIt script or in html code or something else?

'?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>

with simplespy you will get your basics

Whats the intention of your question?

Other syntax is with Instance:NN where NN is the sequence index

e.g. Click the 2nd instance of a "Button" control containing the text "Finish"

ControlClick("My Window", "", "[CLASS:Button; TEXT:Finish; INSTANCE:2]")

As frequently in HTML developers do not assign an id value for non-entry elements making life harder and I believe with inspect element tools you will initially not see the Id (if its not there some browsers generate it themselves for that session)

I'm just trying to make it easier for making scripts to automate website navigation with autoit. I have a tool that tells me the pixel coordinates and the hex and dec color value. I was looking for another similar tool for finding info on web objects to help speed up the process.
