Dear Monks,

I am trying to do a $mech->select but it is giving me an error like "Input "search_form:country_id" not found". Actually the "search_form:country_id" is present in the source code. I can not find where the Issue really is. The $mech->submit is also not submitting! Can anyone pls suggest me where i am getting wrong. The code is provided below.

use strict; use WWW::Mechanize; my $url = ""; my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new(); print "$url\n"; eval{ $mech->agent_alias('Mac Safari'); $mech->get($url); $mech->form_name('myForm'); $mech->select('search_form:category_ext_id','0'); $mech->field('search_form:continent_id','1'); my @values = ("25","49"); $mech->select('search_form:country_id',\@values); $mech->submit(); };

Thank you all.
