When I select from a dropdown it doesn't refresh the page...

Sometimes choosing an item from a drop-down menu does more than just the selection. Some drop-down menus trigger events when you make a selection, and these can involve some fairly complex website interactions.

iMacros is normally able to trigger events in the same way manual interactions do, but sometimes you might encounter one that doesn't work when you play back your macro.

One solution here is to have iMacros make a pre-selection from the menu and then make the selection you want. So have two TAG commands:

Code: Select all

TAG POS=1 TYPE=SELECT FORM=NAME:Formname ATTR=NAME:listname CONTENT=1
TAG POS=1 TYPE=SELECT FORM=NAME:Formname ATTR=NAME:listname CONTENT=0
