We are currently working on a new version (2.46) of webElements.
Although there are no new functions in this build, there is a much easier way to submit to / target named windows, iframes, and current windows. The number of submit buttons and links has been drastically reduced so that it is easier to figure out how to target a window and what control to use. There is also a sample report that shows you the various submit controls and methods.
All submit controls can now open multiple reports and or web intelligence documents.
There are a lot of bug fixes as well and we have been striving to eliminate a lot of the cross-browser issues…i.e. more of the functions should be trouble free in Firefox or Safari. There are still some issues so please have a look at the readme.txt in the download.
If you would like to test this new beta out then we encourage you to do so plus provide feedback and suggestions by replying to this blog post.
Some NOTES on this beta 246 build:
1) *** Please do not use these functions in your production environment as they are beta functions. ***
2) If you wish to use the new submit methods on existing reports, you will have to switch the buttons and links functions that you are currently using…there is one main submit function named WESubmit which replaces many of the older functions. Please see the formulae in the WESubmitMethods_246 report in the download.
3) The majority of older submit functions are in the Other > Deprecated folder of the webelements functions. they will not be supported in version 246 and up.
4) If you apply the 2.46 functions against existing reports, you may have to change some formulae due to a couple of the 2.46 functions having additional parameters. This is a very minor and easy procedure.
