Hi,

We are trying to get an automation running whereby we open a web browser and then click a Download button on the web page. I notice that it is recommended to locate an element by ID. How does one find the ID of a button?

Thanks,

James

James,
the ID in question is the ID of the HTML object in the web page. It can be found (if any) by using the "web developer tools" of the browser.
