Hello Experts,
I am using VB 2010
my application downloads a web page
somewhere inside this webpage there is this line

<input type="submit" value="login" class="text rounded" style="position:relative; top:20px; left:116px; font-size:11px;  height:25px; width:95px; font-weight:bold; color:#006187;" />
 
I am trying to CLICK() on this button using:
 DirectCast(GetCurrentWebForm.item("cmdSubmitMe", 0), mshtml.HTMLButtonElement).click()

But as you can see there is no ID of Name in the source line
Please your advice,

One way would be to search by the type and value members. You will first want to get a collection of Input tags using GetElementsByTagName then you can filter using GetAttribute for "type" and "value".

Here is some example using the WebBrowser Class
Dim inputElements As HtmlElementCollection = webBrowser1.Document.GetElementsByTagName("input")
        MsgBox(inputElements.Count)
        For Each element As HtmlElement In inputElements
 
            If element.GetAttribute("TYPE").ToLower.Equals("submit") AndAlso _
                element.GetAttribute("VALUE").ToLower.Equals("login") Then
                '// TODO: Work with this HtmlElement
                'element.InvokeMember("click")
                'element.InvokeMember("submit")
            End If
            
        Next
