_IECreate Returns empty

Recommended Posts



I'm trying to automate a website login process. Everytime I use _IECreate("https://www.mail.google.com") it returns empty that is not allowing me to find Form other Input ids, Below is sample code :

$oIE = _IECreate("https://www.google.com")


Local $o_form = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE,"login")

Local $o_username= _IEGetObjByName($oIE,"username")
Local $o_password = _IEGetObjByName($o_form,"password")
Local $add = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE) 

Help is greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

In future please pay attention to where you post - "Developer Chat" is not for general support questions such as this. I have moved the thread for you. :)


The rules change last November - we will not help with "log-in and security [dialogs" but plain vanilla page log-ins such as this are perfectly acceptable. :)


Any of my own code posted anywhere on the forum is available for use by others without any restriction of any kind._______My UDFs:

Date_Time_Convert -- Easily convert date/time formats, including the language used

Hello bethakota, 

I didn't see any forms or login areas on the google.com website that doesn't require a redirect. But, try this:

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate("mail.google.com")

Local $o_form = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE, 0);
Local $o_username= _IEFormElementGetObjByName($o_form,"email")
Local $o_password = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($o_form,"passwd")

_IEFormElementSetValue($o_username, "your_username")
_IEFormElementSetValue($o_password, "your_password")
