Selecing Dropdown, basis CSV Input

Post by soulgeek » Mon Mar 01, 2010 1:40 pm


Need Urgent Help... :?

I want to select something from a Drop-Down, that drop down has 10 Values as Text.

In CSV i have one of thoes values (Shoes), Now, when the macro runs, it should pick "Shoes" from the Drop down.

How can this be done?

The Source Code of Web page is:

Code: Select all

<select name="main_category" style="border: 2px solid rgb(0, 0, 255);">
<option value="All">All</option>
<option value="Apparel">Apparel</option>
<option value="Automotive">Automotive</option>
<option value="Baby">Baby</option>
<option value="Beauty">Beauty</option>
<option value="Books">Books</option>
<option value="Classical">Classical</option>
<option value="DVD">DVD</option>
<option value="Electronics">Electronics</option>
<option value="HealthPersonalCare">HealthPersonalCare</option>
<option value="HomeGarden">HomeGarden</option>
<option value="HomeImprovement">HomeImprovement</option>
<option value="Jewelry">Jewelry</option>
<option value="Kitchen">Kitchen</option>
<option value="Jewelry">Jewelry</option>
<option value="Outlet">Outlet</option>
<option value="MP3Downloads">MP3Downloads</option>
<option value="Music">Music</option>
<option value="MusicTracks">MusicTracks</option>
<option value="OfficeProducts">OfficeProducts</option>
<option value="OutdoorLiving">OutdoorLiving</option>
<option value="Shoes">Shoes</option>
<option value="Software">Software</option>
<option value="SoftwareVideoGames">SoftwareVideoGames</option>
<option value="Toys">Toys</option>
<option value="VHS">VHS</option>
<option value="Video">Video</option>
<option value="VideoGames">VideoGames</option>
<option value="Watches">Watches</option>


Now, in My I have "Shoes"... how to automatically select Shoes from drop down?

When i do it in Imacro if does like:

Code: Select all

TAG POS=1 TYPE=SELECT FORM=ACTION:/wp-admin/admin.php?page=amaniche/search.php ATTR=NAME:main_category CONTENT=21

But What i want to do is to pull the value from CSV
something like:

Code: Select all

TAG POS=1 TYPE=SELECT FORM=ACTION:/wp-admin/admin.php?page=amaniche/search.php ATTR=NAME:main_category CONTENT={{!COL1}}

How can i achieve this?

P.S: I can give the Tech Support my UserID and Password, but i am not able to PM anyone.... :roll:

Please see this wiki article. All you have to do is add a "$" sign before the text you need to select.
