Getting Input Box Handle?

Recommended Posts


Hi there guys, I'm working on a simple program that has a list of all my accounts like email, facebook, school grades, etc.and all i have to do is click on the gui and itll log me on automatically to the desired account. I have the username and password stored in my autoit file and I can log on just fine but only by manually moving the mouse or by tabbing a lot to select the box; however I want to know if i can just get the name of the input box and place the focus on that?

if i didnt explain well just denote it below and i'll try again(: thanks

Discussing auto-logon methods for websites is frowned upon here as they could be used in creating auto-posters(spam) or bots (spam). I guess they'd rather the next person arrested for sending out 300,000 "Cheapest Canadian Pharmacy!" emails per day, or that the bot spewing "18/f I'm bored and undressing on cam now!" in yahoo chat weren't a result of programs written using AutoIt.

I saw your other thread where you express that you're not up to "no good", assuming your good faith, I will say posts regarding obtaining control info and interacting with them are not hard to find via the forum search.

Edit: It's kind of like buying a bong in some states (not implying that you or I would do, or have ever done, such a thing). You cannot utter words like "weed" or "pot" or by law they can no longer sell it to you, since it is intended to be used for tobacco products only ;)

Spiff59 has already explained so you will not be surprised that this thread is now locked. :)

I would further caution against having all your usernames and passwords stored in an AutoIt script (even compiled) as they would be far from secure. ;)
