Is there a program where i can launch a website, click on a button or textfield and it will give me the getElementByID? I searched around for this and i have found nothing? Why doesn't this exist?

I am writing a program that will enter information into a copiers web interface for scanning. The problem is the copier's web interface uses Java and XML. I cannot get my program to enter the information into the apprioate field because i cant find the tag to reference it!!! its very annoying, this is the last stage to my program.

Please help :(
