    Using the Find.ByAttributes<T>() method I am able to find a specific control in the DOM, but once found I cannot cast it to a more specific type, HtmlInputText. The control is an input field, which can be seen in the HtmlControl properties. I then attempt to cast the HtmlControl by simply:

    HtmlInputText _email = ctrl as HtmlInputText; (ctrl is the generic HtmlControl)

    I could work with the HtmlControl, but there are specific methods and properties that the HtmlInputControl has that the more generic HtmlControl does not.

    I was hoping to find any feedback on why the casting could not be done, when the HtmlControl returned was an input control.

    Hi Al,

    Thank you for the shared description. 

    Please use HtmlInputControl instead of HtmlInputText. This should be the control you are looking for.
