I have to study WebDriver topics right?

Yes this is the best UDF to automate Chrome.  When you download the UDF, there is a Help File.  But more importantly, you will get the demo.au3 file to learn all the basics.  There are many useful examples in the demo that can serve to accelerate the learning.  Look also at the AutoIt Wiki for the how-to.  In case of an issue, post code here, someone will help you.

I must admit that I am finding some trouble with webdriver, it is totaly new to me, right now I am receiving an error "#include json ecc" I used to write some simple script to automate I.E. but now autoit is becoming always more powerfull and powerfull  and for this also more complicated too.

I am really trying to get these UDF packing but I cannot find it, I just found a .exe from this site https://sites.google.com/chromium.org/driver/

for UDF regarding JSON I landed on this website https://github.com/zserge/jsmn but I am unable to find JSMN.au3 or Json.au3, same thing with WinHttp.au3 

before insulting me remember I am an human being too

Pardon me, of course I am doing it, I am currently watching some video on YT about Webdriver, It is not easy because they are in english and it is not my first language, just I cannot find the above mentioned Au3 files (JSMN.au3,  Json.au3, WinHttp.au3 ).


I used simplespy once, it is a very good tool but I am forced to use Chrome and I remember that it works just with I.E. Is not that right? 

Could someone pls link me the location of these file? J

SMN.au3,  Json.au3, WinHttp.au3    PLS?

simplespy works also on chrome. It should recognize all basic html elements.

if not 

  1. Start Chrome with this flag: --force-renderer-accessibility

Its a little harder thru UIA to get to the actual HTML source which is easier with webdriver UDF. It just depends on your goal whats easier.
