Thanks Steves. I have 2 follow-up questions.

1. How do I find out the co-ordinates, as there are many other "image buttons" in the same page.

Here is the expanded piece of HTML for clarity:
<tr> <td bgcolor="white"><img height="1" width="1" src="px.gif"></t +d> <td bgcolor="white" colspan="2"><input type="password" name="h +tmPassword" size="10" class="rtnavinput"></td> <td bgcolor="white"><input type=image src="/images/btnGoRed.gi +f" width="15" height="15" border="0"></td> <td bgcolor="white"><img height="1" width="1" src="px.gif"></t +d> </tr>


2. The syntax for "click" with coordinates is : $mech->click( $button [, $x, $y] ) What should I set $button to? There is no button name in the code.

    I created this HTML:
    <form action="test.cgi" method="GET"> <tr> <td bgcolor="white"><img height="1" width="1" src="px. +gif"></td> <td bgcolor="white" colspan="2"><input type="password" + name="htmPassword" size="10" class="rtnavinput"></td> <td bgcolor="white"><input type=image src="/images/btn +GoRed.gif" width="15" height="15" border="0"></td> <td bgcolor="white"><img height="1" width="1" src="px. +gif"></td> </tr> </form>

    to see what gets sent. It fetches:

    .../test.cgi?htmPassword=&x=8&y=10

    So maybe you need to do something like this:

    $mech->set_fields(x => 1, y => 1); $mech->submit();

    The script probably doesn't attention to the x and y, in which case you could do simply:

    $mech->submit();

    (Untested, and I'd never used WWW::Mechanize.)

      Thanks for your input. However, a simple submit or submit_form is not working.

      FYI, there are several forms in the same page.
