How to make the macro scroll down the web page?

Post by Tech Support » Mon Mar 19, 2007 2:04 pm

Problem: Unlike the other click commands, WINCLICK operates only on the visible part of a web page (Please see http://forum.iopus.com/viewtopic.php?t=300 for a detailed CLICK/WINCLICK comparison.)

Solution: You can use the TAG command to scroll the required part of the web page into view. A step by step guide with screenshots can be found in the user forum at

I am using IE7 with the the free version of iMacros and I am having trouble getting to elements that ar not on the visible part of a screen. When I record the macro I am not allowed allowed to scroll down the page to get to elements that are not visible on the initial presentation of the screen. You must scroll down the page in order to get to these elements. How do I incorporate scrolling when recording my macro?

TAG POS=51 TYPE=INPUT:BUTTON FORM=NAME:work_frm ATTR=
TAG POS=1 TYPE=TD ATTR=TXT:Text<SP>Messaging<SP>Service<SP>
TAG POS=12 TYPE=INPUT:TEXT FORM=NAME:work_frm ATTR=NAME:displaySectionElement_attributeDisplayName CONTENT=Text<SP>Messaging<SP>Package
TAG POS=1 TYPE=DIV ATTR=ID:tbl_container_dse_display_section_element_maintain_list_table_container
TAG POS=51 TYPE=INPUT:BUTTON FORM=NAME:work_frm ATTR=
TAG POS=1 TYPE=TD ATTR=TXT:General<SP>
TAG POS=51 TYPE=INPUT:BUTTON FORM=NAME:work_frm ATTR=
TAG POS=1 TYPE=TD ATTR=TXT:Cellular<SP>Roaming<SP>Service<SP>
TAG POS=51 TYPE=INPUT:BUTTON FORM=NAME:work_frm ATTR=
TAG POS=1 TYPE=TD ATTR=TXT:General<SP>

The idea alway is: record an element near the one you want to automate by DS. Then you can use this TAG command to make the browser scroll to the relevant area.

What do you mean by "When I record the macro I am not allowed allowed to scroll down the page"?
