Updating a field in a popup window

Recommended Posts


I am trying to pass credentials to an IE window. But when I hit the web site, I get a windows popup. It then takes focus off the IE site so I cannot use IE to send the credentials. I tried making the window accept input, but it will not allow me to even call it. I have included the AUTOIT window info, and a picture of the popup.

When I try to enter data in a field, the script stops. I am using the WinActivate( "Connect to", "") Once I can get it so I can put the data in, I would like to do it minimized from the Taskbar or hidden.

Thoughts Oh' masters of AutoIT

If you don't need much security, you may try passing the URL in the form http://login:password@host.domain.root/homepage... but I don't know if that will be interpreted by the system correctly before being passed around.

I've little experience with entering credentials in those dialogs with AutoIt. I suppose you should WinWatActive and then ControlSend, but certainly others know better.

This wonderful site allows debugging and testing regular expressions (many flavors available). An absolute must have in your bookmarks.
