IE automation

3 posts in this topic

I've hit a problem in trying to automate a series of web form submissions.

My problem is that a part of the id strings of form controls is randomly generated by the web application, so the _IEGetObjById function isn't too helpful as it doesn't have any wildcard string matching facility as far as I am aware(?)

_IEFormElementGetCollection looks like it could help, but I haven't found any obvious way of examining the returned objects to find out what their id is.

Without resorting to running a regular expression on the entire document html, is there an easier solution I'm missing here?

It certainly seems to be an area where useful product enhancements could be made, anyway.

Can't do that - it's a private intranet application.

However, if you're really interested - it's actually the administration web pages of the Alfresco content management system, which you can download a copy of yourself from www.alfresco.com, but you'll need to be very keen(!)
