Alternate way to find control ID's on a website?

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I'm looking for a way to grab control ID's from buttons/pulldown menu's that don't appear to have one (according to the Window Info program) Either that or a way to find the javacode associated with a certain button. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for any help. :whistle:

EDIT: Also I need a link to IE.au3 ...thanks.

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

Well, that works well on some pages, but the page I'm looking to use it on seems to block it. Is there an external program that doesn't run through the browser?

In Firefox there is an integrated DOM inspector that can be used. For IE there is the IE Developer Toolbar

Or you can use functions in IE.au3 like _IEDocReadHTML you can use.
