Window Info Tool for IE or FireFox

8 posts in this topic

I'm trying to automate installation of some software that doesn't have a silent switch and forces open a web page. My question is:

Is there a window info tool that can read forms? Or is there some other way to read in the webpage to find the tags for the form fields. Coordinates will not work because the resolution of the screen varies and some scrolling is required.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

ss3

I'm using DebugBar v5.2.2, although I wish I could find something a little nicer.

FireFox has FireBug.

DebugBar is about the best out there - worth getting use to.


Post your code because code says more then your words can. SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y.

Thanks for the info. I just wish the info on form fields included the ID. All I see is the name and input type.

You can use the dom tab to read the html of a selected form/field.

It will show the IDs, but only if they exist.

You're right. I didn't notice that when you are on the form section, if you click the form field it will show you all the details including the ID's in the source pane. I guess I just need to spend a little time familiarizing myself with it.

Thanks everyone,
