To learn about forms and fields on a website, you can use the Form Utility application included with our plugin.

Some websites use a lot of JavaScript, so you may need to send change event to control via WebView.RunJavaScript so the javascript is notified about the changes.

Examples

set field named "InputText" for form named "form1" in webview named "web" to "Hello World":

MBS("WebView.SetFormTextAreaValue"; "web"; "form1"; "InputText"; "Hello World")
