How to handle website login popups?

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to write a function that logs in to a website, which upon using the function _IECreate immediately gives me a popup to enter a username and a password. I've tried both attached examples, but in the first example the console returns:

--> IE.au3 V2.4-0 Warning from function _IEFormGetCollection, $_IEStatus_NoMatch

--> IE.au3 V2.4-0 Error from function _IEFormElementGetCollection, $_IEStatus_InvalidDataType

0+>11:53:49 AutoIT3.exe ended.rc:0

>Exit code: 0 Time: 14.665

So this probably won't work.

The second example doesnt seem to do anything after the login popup pops up either.

Whats the correct way to handle such popups?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Kind regards,

Ouch, I'm sorry I didn't see that thread. I actually did search but obviously not good enough. I figured I needed to search on autoitsetoption because there was something about it in the helpfile but I couldn't figure it out. Sorry about this.

Thanks for pointing me to it.
