[twill] Converting interactive session to code

Hi Jesse,
I'm using the latest twill, though have now discovered that the problem
is somewhere in how my Windows executable is being built with py2exe.  I
subsequently found that the code does, indeed, work as a script to
python.exe.  Oddly, however, it fails in my executable.  Other uses of
the formvalue command in the same executable are working, so I am
baffled.  I'll keep experimenting with how the twill-related modules are
imported by py2exe.

Thanks for the help of you and others.

Hi Jamal,

I was able to reproduce your example without a TwillAssertionError,
using twill version 0.9.  I'm not sure what the problem is.  Which
version of Twill are you using?

	I'm trying to automate a Wikipedia search using Google to find
the best
	matching article.  I have things working in an interactive
session with
	the twill shell, but for some reason, the code is not finding
the Google
	search form -- I get the error
"twill.errors.TwillAssertionError: no
	matching forms!"
	Here is the relevant code:
	sQuery = 'Python'
	sAddress = 'http://google.com'
	oBrowser = twill.get_browser()
	twill.commands.formvalue(1, 'q', 'site:wikipedia.org ' + sQuery
	twill mailing list
	twill at lists.idyll.org
