Basic Authentication _IECreate/InetGet

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I found some information via search, but it was out of date. I need to access a site that is using basic auth with either the _IECreate or InetGet functions. The old answer was to put the credentials in the URL like https://user:pass@someplace.com . However, Autoit uses IE, and post IE 6 credentials are disabled in the URL. Is there another way?

It's hard to believe none else has had this problem.

I was thinking a long the same lines...

I probably looked for it for about 3 hours.

I am sure there are better ways to do it but here is what I did to work with websites that have basic authentication.

#include <IE.au3>
#Region Vars
$o_Addy = "ip or something.com"
$user = "username goes here"
$pass = "password goes here"
#EndRegion Vars

#Region Controls
    Login window vars
    When using the AU3Info tool the class of the login window is $Class.
    The $ctrlU thru $ctrlS is the "ClassnameNN" for each textbox and button on the login window.
$Class = "[CLASS:#32770]"
$ctrlU = "Edit2"
$ctrlP = "Edit3"
$ctrlS = "Button2"
#EndRegion Controls

#Region Navigation to login prompt
$o_IE = _IECreate()
    Allowing the script to continue while page is still loading was the tricky part for me.
    the zero at the end of the navigation command is "$f_wait=0". 0 does not wait for page to load and 1 waits.
_IENavigate($o_IE, $o_Addy, 0)
#EndRegion Navigation to login prompt

;wait for 5 seconds for login window.

#Region Control the login window
ControlSend($Class, "", $ctrlU, $user)
ControlSend($Class, "", $ctrlP, $pass)
ControlClick($Class, "", $ctrlS, "")
MsgBox(0, "Finished", "Bob's your uncle")
#EndRegion Control the login window
