A Simple DOM Manipulation Example

We have been getting a lot of questions recently about how eValid handles interactions that require pure-DOM operations.

Of course, most of what you can do by constructing an eValid script to manipulate the DOM can be done with a recorded (captured) script, but in some cases there are conveninence and generality factors involved.

For example, you might want the scrip to be used in a systematic over very large numbers of differenc instances. Or, you may want to confirm/validate non-obvious internal details about DOM element settings?

Here's our simple illustration script that uses the main DOM manipulations Illustration of DOM Manipulation Capabilities. This example uses most of the capabilites: value input/output, the ability to find particular DOM elements, and the ability to act on them by modify values DOM attibute level.
