onChange attribute on the SELECT tag. Most likely it is doing some
sort of client side form verification before it submits the form.
WWW::Mechanize, but nothing that would handle this function selectTimePeriod().
your WWW::Mechanize bot behavior as appropriate. Perhaps it is mapping the
value's to a new value, or doing some other kind of voodoo? If you post the
whole page I would be willing to take a look.
A couple other things to double check:
- is the form name really "DATERANGE"?
- is there a special button that the user is supposed to click, like a
"search" button or something? If so, you'll have to specify the button
to click with the 'button' parameter in your call to submit_form().
