I will admit I've never used Mechanize before and if I am asking painfully
obvious feel free to push me out in traffic, however...

I have an odd issue.  I have grabbed a form off of CDW's site and am trying
to fill out the proper info.  The form shows the select list I want "_ct19"
but when I try to manipulate it mechanize acts like it doesn't exist

Here is the form:

#<WWW::Mechanize::Form
 {name "HubPage"}
 {method "POST"}
 {action "default.aspx?hubpagefhardware%2fprinters.html"}
 {fields
  #<WWW::Mechanize::Form::Field:0x33f0054
   @name_VIEWSTATE",
   @value/wEPDwUJODExNjM3MjQ1D2QWBAIBDxYCHgRUZXh0BRY8ZGl2IGlkPSdjLWNvbnRhaW5lcic+ZAI

                                              .
     #<WWW::Mechanize::Form::Option:0x2d60d9c

 {radiobuttons}
 {checkboxes}
 {file_uploads}
 {buttons}>
nil
irb(main):050:0>



When I try to get details on either _ct19 or _VIEWSTATE I get an empty array
back:

toner_form.fields.name('_ct19')
[]

toner_form.fields.name('_VIEWSTATE')
[]

However with _ctl12 and _ctl15 everything appears to be happy:

toner_form.fields.name('_ctl15')
[#<WWW::Mechanize::Form::SelectList:0x2d5ddcc @value, @options,
@namectl15">]

toner_form.fields.name('_ctl12')
[#<WWW::Mechanize::Form::SelectList:0x2d5f76c @value, @options,
@namectl12">]


Does anyone have any idea how I can get to the select field I need?
