Description

Set the value of the specified Field in a webviewer.
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 A form value

Let(
[

Field = "name";
NewValue = "Clark Kent";
Form = "myForm";
WebViewerName = "MyWebViewer";

WindowRef = MBS("Window.FindByTitle"; Get(WindowName));
WebViewerID = MBS("WebView.FindByName"; WindowRef; WebViewerName)

];


MBS("WebView.SetFormValue"; WebViewerID; Form; Field; NewValue)

)

Fill a form:

MBS( "WebView.SetFormValue" ; "web"; "search"; "street_name"; "test2" )
