Watir — Priority for using attributes

Source:

<input id=”query1″ type=”text” autocomplete=”off” value=”” name=”query”/>

Code:

require ‘rubygems’
require ‘watir’
$ie=Watir::IE.new
$ie.maximize
$ie.goto(“http://search.aol.in/aol/webhome&#8221;)
$ie.text_field(:id,’query1′).value=”Raveendran”

Issue:

Change the last line of the code like this

$ie.text_field(:name,’query’).value=”Raveendran”

It is not working :). Rit ?

Solution:

So the first priority goes to the “ID” attirbute  to access the input fields.
