Sending a string variable to outlook input box --> "This Field requires a value"

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone

I am trying to send the email adress and password to input boxes in outlook

Unfortunatly I always get the Error "This Field requires a value".

Variable $email2 is generated from the window text which is cut into the string I want.

Variable $pwd is entered in a autoit inputbox.

If I just set the variables like that: $pwd = "meow123" - it works...

Some samples of my code:

$pwd = InputBox("Password","Enter your Windows Password to connect your Mailbox automatically","","*")
While $sc <> 0
   $Addacc = WinGetText("Add New Account")
   $StringCut = StringSplit($Addacc,":")
   $len=StringLen($StringCut[4])
   $email=StringLeft($stringcut[4],$len-7)
   $email2 = StringLeft($email,stringlen($email)-1)
   $compare2 = StringRight($email,15)
   $sc = StringCompare($compare1, StringLeft($compare2,14))
WEnd
   Send("{TAB}")
   Send("{TAB}")
   Send("{BS}")
   Sleep(1000)
   Send($email2) ;This is where I get the error Msgbox from outlook.
   Sleep(2000)
   Send("{TAB}")
   Sleep(1000)
   Send($pwd)

In case you wonder, why there is a while loop - Sometimes it takes longer to load the window and i just want to be sure it saves the correct string.

Thanks in Advance.

Welcome to AutoIt and the forum!

To make sure that the window has loaded use WinWait and/or WinWaitActive.

Is this a script to create Outlook profiles?

You could create a PRF-file and then import the new profile by starting "Outlook.exe /importprf profile.prf"

Details can be found here.

BTW: Please have a look at my OutlookEX UDF (User Defined Functions) which makes scripting for Outlook much easier.

Thank you.

I guess that would be a lot more professional ;)

And more reliable ;)

Sending keystrokes to windows is possible but quite unreliable (user can easily interrupt the script).

If you need to send data or click buttons use AutoIts Control commands.
