Recording in IE not recording control names


Recording in IE not recording control names


Hopefully someone can help me with an issue that I'm encountering recording a web application in IE. I'm doing a recording initially on a screen with just username and password but when I play it back all of the items captured are called InternetExplorerServer - instead of, say, a click on a textbox called Username the field name was captured as InternetExplorerServer. Instead of the Password textbox I also get InternetExplorerServer - needless to say when I play it back the script fails.

I'm obviously doing something incorrectly - and probably glaringly incorrectly - but I'm not getting anywhere just getting the basic login screen recorded.


Any ideas where I'm going wrong or what I need to check?
