How to send or set text in a hidden IE object?

3 posts in this topic

Ok, i have a hidden Webbrowser object which at some stage requires the user to select a file using a dialog. Putting in the fact that the IE object is hidden how would i do this? I am hoping there is a better way than send keys such as property set etc. The text i want to put/send is in a variable. Please help.

It's been repeatedly said that this is no longer possible because of a it is a security risk. You think they would build a way around the security patch, and you can still do this? Think again.

But, a browser is just a simple program that creates, interprets and manipulates HTTP packets. Knowing that we can use WinHTTP or HTTP UDF's or my personal favorite to do what you want.
