Click on the browser selection tool and select the dropdown input field. This will highlight the line of code in the browser.
Let's take a closer look at the element. Notice name="sstate". This is the name of the drop-down menu. Note: If the name doesn't work, you can also try using id="sstate" instead.
Copy sstate and paste it into the Dropdown Name field, back in Visualping.
Next, open the select element. You'll notice the many child option elements. Each of them has a value attribute. This is the name of the selection. Will choose Alabama.
Copy AL and paste it into the Selection Name field.
Preview the action.
