Entering text in web

Carl
Hi, can wxPython be used to enter text into bars on web pages and
click on buttons online? If so how can you do this?

wxPython is too young to go into bars.

For a lot of web pages you will find that pressing the submit button, or
whatever the final button is actually doing something along the lines of
invoking a new web page with the format someurl followed by a sequence
of control characters/separators, (often ? and %), splitting up the
fields on the form with some tag names for each field and the text/value
selected in the field so you can get the same effect by programmatically
generating this url.  It is also worth taking a look at the python url*
help pages as python, (rather than wxPython), has a LOT of support for
html processing - so you could load a page, in python, pre-fill the form
and then display it.

wxPython is a desktop GUI toolkit, not a web interaction tool. If you want to interact with a website, see urllib(2), the requests package, selenium or mechanize.
