WWW::Mechanize problem

Hello,

I could not yet figure out how to work around this problem:

agent = WWW::Mechanize.new
page = agent.get(“http://www.amazon.com/”)
search_form = page.forms.with.name(“site-search”).first
search_form.field-keywords = “Ruby”

i.e. that the name of the input field is ‘field-keywords’, so Ruby
thinks (rightfully of course) that I am calling the method ‘field’ of
the object search_form and of course then the whole thing does not work.
Any suggestions?

TIA,
Peter

You could try

search_form[“field-keyword”] = “Ruby”

guessing from
http://mechanize.rubyforge.org/classes/WWW/Mechanize/Form.html:

search_form[‘field-keywords’] = “Ruby”

or you could do

search_form.send(:‘field-keywords=’, “Ruby”)
