Scripting Internet Explorer task

Recommended Posts


I have run into a roadblock in a script I'm writing... (I've searched, read the docs, and FAQs - but I appologize I'm not a very skilled programmer, so I may have found my answer, I just am not sure what to do with it.)

I have IE open, browse to a login page - successfully log in using a submit function.

Now the next step to choose from a drop down menu one of two options (that will never change) and click a submit button. After that the window can be closed.

I'm looking at the code now and I see the

select name='some_variable$0' id ='some_variable$0'

and the option values below are 1 and 2

And I also found the button's name in the code.

Unfortunately I can't post the code here, but if you need more details - I'll be glad to append this thread with as much as I can. What would the code look like for something like the drop down menu selection?

Thanks in advance for any suggestion.

Look at _IEFormElementOptionselect() in the help file and play with the demo script there.
