text on web page is not in html source???
Posted on 2006-07-11
I am working with a browser-based app (specifically Sage CRM). It is a The screen has a field which Sage calls a "Search Select Advanced" field. It is kind of like a drop-down list, but I guess it is a custom control? It is basically a text box with an icon (magnifying glass) next to it. You can type a partial name into the text box and then click the icon. When you click the icon, it does a look up based on the partial name entered and returns a pop-up list window which you can then select from. So for example, Let's say I type the letter 'M' into the text box and then hit the icon. I get a list of companies that begin with the letter 'M'. So then I select 'Microsoft' from the list of companies and the word 'Microsoft' is placed into the text box. But if then goto View->Source and search the HTML code, the word 'Microsoft' is not in there??? Does anyone know how this would work? I don't understand how I can be looking at a word on a web page, but I can't find the word in the html source.
