Using PAMIE with Python25, it tells me it can't find the Google search box


I'm pretty new to Python, and brand new to PAMIE, and I'm out of ideas on what to try on this.

I'm running a simple test script to go to google, type something in the search box and search for it.

Everything except the textAreaSet function works flawlessly.

Here's the code:


Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. from cPAMIE import PAMIE
  3. ie = PAMIE()
  5. ie.navigate("google.com")
  6. ie._wait()
  7. ie.textAreaSet('q', 'Python')
  8. ie._wait()
  9. ie.buttonClick('btnG')

It opens the browser window, then looks for the text box and doesn't find it, returns false, then clicks the search button.

The return for the textAreaSet function is this:

** elementFind() did not find textarea-name;id-q
** textAreaSet() did not find q-Python

As I said, I'm out of ideas, the search box is there and named 'q' for all I can tell.

I apologize if this is something obvious, but I'm pretty new to this.

Thanks for your help.

I've tried the same thing with Wikipedia, and it gives the same result.


Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. from cPAMIE import PAMIE
  3. ie = PAMIE()
  5. ie.navigate("wikipedia.org")
  6. ie._wait()
  7. ie.textAreaSet('search', 'Python')
  8. ie._wait()
  9. ie.buttonClick('go')
which yields:

** elementFind() did not find textarea-name;id-search
** textAreaSet() did not find search-Python

I found out why it was wrong...


I should have been using textBoxSet rather than textAreaSet.

Sorry for wasting anyone's time, I'll show myself out...
