Re: Select different kind of elements

One is to create a selector for each kind of element, and then use the + operator whenever you want to select any of the elements: + · Select.ButtonA · Select.ButtonP If you're using a wizard you will only be able to select a specific selector, so just select a...

Re: Select.ByScript

Yes, Select.ByScript must return a DOM element or a list of DOM elements. I guess the documentation should be explicit about this. If you just need to get a string from a script, you can use Browser.EvalScript like this: Browser.EvalScript · "return 'Hello World!';" · 0 as myString extract test mySt...

Re: Solve Image CAPTCHA

Hi,

The code above (in my response to the previous question) will keep solving the captcha until it's gone, so it should also work in this case, as long as the site shows the catpcha again when resolution fails. Is that how it works on the site you're scraping from?
