Is this possible?

8 posts in this topic

Hey everyone, I'm new to this whole scripting thing. I was just wondering if it's possible to run a script working on a Firefox in the background. I want to make a script that adds a "0" to the url of a webpage hit enter, wait 30 seconds add another 0, hit enter, and repeat.

Thanks!

there is always a way, however whats is the purpose, because there may be a better way to do what ever your trying to accomplish.

Thanks,

I just need to visit a webpage over and over again with an extra 0 added into the url.

OK so there are a couple ways you could do it, first off you could do a really basic one that just manually clicks the url, then enters the 0 then sends the enter key stroke.

Another more discrete way would be to inject it directly into the url using a memory injection (would be probably hardest way).

look up _IE in the help file, you can also make it do some cool stuff using the:

#include <IE.au3>

Thanks,

_WinWaitActivate("LeeMails.com - Mozilla Firefox","")
MouseClick("left",718,72,1)
sleep (1000)
MouseClick("left",718,72,1)
Send("0{ENTER}")
sleep (31000)
MouseClick("left",718,72,1)
sleep (1000)
MouseClick("left",718,72,1)
Send("0{ENTER}")

Okay so this is what I've got for my script. I can't figure out how to make it run in the background though. I tried the control send, but I kept getting errors.

I don't think we should be encouraging the use of AutoIt for this sort of thing, defrauding advertisers by collecting cash for bogus click-throughs.
