Replay fails

Post by Guest » Wed Sep 21, 2005 2:20 pm

Recorded macro does not work. I record a macro that clicks a button (not an input:submit, but an input:button) and it records fine. however, upon playback, it can't seem to locate the button again. none of the button parameters are changing. the code is exactly the same. however the button is not located inside form tags (the macro actually records FORM=NAME:NoFormName) so perhaps this is whats confusing the program. below i've pasted the macro you can playback to see this problem actually happen.

replay this macro to witness the problem for yourself:

Code: Select all

VERSION BUILD=4310611     
URL GOTO=http://hotjobs.yahoo.com/jobseeker/jobsearch/search_results.html?keywords_all=&Search=Find+a+Job     
TAG POS=1 TYPE=INPUT:BUTTON FORM=NAME:NoFormName ATTR=NAME:refine&&VALUE:Refine<SP>Search

[/code]

The normal recording has indeed a problem on this page.

Solution: Switch to X/Y clickmode for this part of the page. Then everythings well:

Code: Select all

VERSION BUILD=4160811     
TAB T=1     
TAB CLOSEALLOTHERS     
URL GOTO=http://hotjobs.yahoo.com/jobseeker/jobsearch/search_results.html?keywords_all=&Search=Find+a+Job     
SIZE X=998 Y=640    
CLICK X=278 Y=163 CONTENT=Refine<SP>Search
