( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

While <readmore> tags are helpful, I think you would have seen more response if you had provided the minimalist test case as that makes it much easier to separate the wheat from the chaff.

It also isn't as difficult as you seem to think: make a copy of the problem page (or code) and start hacking away bits of the copy.

For the HTML you posted, that would have resulted in something like...

<form name="lmSelect" method="post"> <input type=button value="Delete Load Manager" name=delService title="Delete a Load Manager from the SLA."> </form>

It really limits where the problem might be when you only have 3 lines of HTML returning the same error as the 371-line page you pointed people to. :-)

Anyhoo, your problem:-

WWW::Mechanize (well, HTML::Form actually) only supports "submit" and "image" type buttons for clicking, and not the "button" type buttons that are used on your form.

The reason for this is "button" type buttons are meant for use with JavaScipt or some other client-side scripting, which WWW::Mechanize doesn't support.

Fortunately, there's an easy workaround, which you can find details and examples of by Super Searching for "update_html".

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
