I previously posted regarding accessing spreadsheet values through a macro. However in making further efforts I ran into a more basic difficulty in trying to automate a couple of items on a web form in Safari.
Here is a link to their example Desktop Form page:
With KM I tried to create a simple macro using Safari which 1) selects the state of California and 2) presses the Sign-in button. Unfortunately I haven't been able to get this to work. Can someone point me to one or several examples or tutorials which explain how to pick the salient elements from a form and how to set their values so that KM can operate on the form? If I can figure out how to get going (first steps are usually the hardest, as you know) I'll be happy to spend a few hours going through some of the major widgets available from Mobiscroll and sharing the set and focus entries I used to get the automation to work. I'm sure I'm making some basic mistakes; your patience is much appreciated.
On reflection and after looking at the promising-sounding description on the KM home page, I'd highly recommend adding a prominent disclaimer or asterisk which indicates that many (%-age?) of Web site forms cannot be reliably automated with KM owing to a variety of variables such as the above-described "randomly generated IDs". I, for one, would not have purchased a license had I been made aware that many web forms (%-age?) cannot be effectively controlled (automated) by KM. Any full automation provided by an app such as KM should include highly reliable and reproducible management/control of commonly encountered Web form widgets such dropdown lists, buttons, etc. and should work on all major browsers IMO. Simple but comprehensive easily found tutorial examples should be provided so users can verify that they can make KM work for their Web form needs.
