Finding HTML Attributes For Automating Web Sites
Update 9th May 2014: Macro Scheduler 14.1.04 introduced the "Find IE Element Wizard" which vastly simplifies finding HTML objects and interacting with them. IE's Developer Tools explained below can still be useful, but in many cases is no longer needed. See Using Macro Scheduler's Find IE Element Wizard for more info.
If you're new to automating Internet Explorer/websites with WebRecorder or the native Macro Scheduler IE functions you may be wondering how to determine which elements and attributes to use. In this video I demonstrate how to use IE's F12 key to invoke Developer Tools and use that to quickly find the elements we're interested in and the attributes we need to use:
#internet explorer #IE #web #HTML
