Hi Justin

I will try to publish a odoo addon that displays references you can point to. The module will work for version 7 for the main elements. 

But the main work is the mapping from the code I send to Selenium code.

As far as I know the Selenium Builder replaced the Selenium IDE.

Thanks, Andreas. I've been using the Selenium IDE in Firefox, which is a
similar concept.

When you say "based on" I assume you mean you've made some custom
extensions? Because the base se-builder seems to have the same problem
all the other macro/selenium recorders have: the fields have generated
ids, and se-builder can't run recorded scripts without them being modified.

If so, that doesn't really help me solve my problem, because I don't
have your tool.

Let's imagine I'm not using a GUI recorder and am writing test cases in
Python that will run using a Selenium browser driver. How would I locate
these input fields then?
