In examples of _IEFormGetObjByName I see "f" and "Form1" used for $s_name. Looking in "Window Info Tool" I do not see "Form1" for an IE page. How is this name obtained?

thanks again,

The Window Info Tool works on standard windows controls -- browser contents are not these types of controls. Rather, the browser has its own structure called the DOM (Document Object Model).

You can use various techniques to get what you need. I suggest you work through some of the _IEForm* examples in the helpfile - the _IEExample("form") used in them will get you started. You can also use View Source in the browser and look at the various tools in my signature below.


Free Internet Tools: DebugBar, AutoIt IE Builder, HTTP UDF, MODIV2, IE Developer Toolbar, IEDocMon, Fiddler, HTML Validator, WGet, curl

MSDN docs: InternetExplorer Object, Document Object, Overviews and Tutorials, DHTML Objects, DHTML Events, WinHttpRequest, XmlHttpRequest, Cross-Frame Scripting, Office object model

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?
