Automation of Internet Payments

4 posts in this topic

Hello !!!!

I am new to AutoIT and before getting into spending time studying it I would like to know if this can be done with AutoIT:

1.- Start my web browser, provide a URL, wait for the Internet page to display, provide UserId and Password and click in "Login" (now I am in my bank account, payments received web page).

2.- Payments received appear very much like emails in your webmail inbox: line items, unread would be bold, read would be normal case.

3.- For each unread line item I have to do the following:

3.1.- Click on the line item to open it

3.2.- Go to the end of the item (similar to going to the end of an email in a webmail) to click on "download detailed payment information"; this would be an attached document containing text.

3.3.- Select a predefined folder to save the attachment containing text

3.4.- Save the attachment file

4.- Continue processing (saving attachments) all the remaining unread "detailed payment information" line items

5.- Logout from my bank account

6.- Close browser

I would appreciate your feedback regarding AutoIT being capable of automating the steps outlined above. If yes, some basic initial pointers would also be appreciated as to "how to do it".

If no, pointers to other tools that could automate this would also be highly appreciated.

Regards,

Ed

Yes.

Go to the help file, click on "index", type in "_IE" and a whole lot of related functions will pop up. Start reading through there and you'll figure it out.

I suggest starting with IE automation first, before you decide to try other clients or client-less. It's very well documented and supported.

EOjeda,

provide UserId and Password

If these values are included in your script so that AutoIt can use them, they will be retrievable by anyone who can access your machine. You CANNOT make them secure - even if you encrypt them, the decryption code within the script will be available. :)

I would strongly suggest NOT automating that part of the process. ;)

But it is your bank account and your money..... ;)
