Login form trouble?

Recommended Posts


Hey there!

I'm having trouble having my script click the submit image of this form. Can anyone see where I went wrong?

$oUsername = "test"
$oPassword = "abc123"

$oIE = _IECreate("http://www.FAKESITE.com")
$oLoginForm = _IEFormGetObjByName ($oIE, "navbar_loginform")

$oQuery = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($oLoginForm, "vb_login_username") ; Find the username field
_IEFormElementSetValue ($oQuery, $oUsername, "byText") ;Set username
$oQuery = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($oLoginForm, "vb_login_password") ; Find the password field
_IEFormElementSetValue ($oQuery, $oPassword, "byText") ;Set password

$oCheckbox = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oLoginForm, "cookieuser"); Find the checkbox option
$oCheckbox.checked = True; check it

_IEFormImageClick ($oLoginForm, "images/styles/GamerBlue/style/loginButton.gif", "src") ;submit account info


<form id="navbar_loginform" action="login.php?do=login" method="post" onsubmit="md5hash(vb_login_password, vb_login_md5password, vb_login_md5password_utf, 0)">

<div class="loginBoxInput">

<input type="text" class="loginInput" name="vb_login_username" id="navbar_username" size="10" accesskey="u" tabindex="101" value="User Name">


<div class="loginBoxInput">

<input type="password" class="loginInput" tabindex="102" name="vb_login_password" id="navbar_password" size="10" style="display: none; ">

<input type="text" class="loginInput" tabindex="102" name="vb_login_password_hint" id="navbar_password_hint" size="10" value="Password" style="display: inline; ">


<input type="checkbox" name="cookieuser" value="1" id="cb_cookieuser_navbar" class="cb_cookieuser_navbar" accesskey="c" tabindex="103">

<input type="image" src="images/styles/GamerBlue/style/loginButton.gif" tabindex="104" value="Log in" title="Enter your username and password in the boxes provided to login, or click the 'register' button to create a profile for yourself." accesskey="s">

Oddly enough, I had it working before, but I think I might have accidentally changed something.

Thank you for your time!

Manic :)

Did you recently upgrade to IE9 perhaps? If so, make certain 1) you use the latest AutoIt beta version 2) if 1 doesn't work, try putting the page in compatability mode

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

Hey Dale,

I fixed it! I think it had to do with cookies.

Thank you!
