Is it possible to run auto IT online?

Recommended Posts


Is it possible to use autoit to do some stuff online?

For example something like this:


Yes, but not practical, also, this would be done server side if for some reason you chose autoit for this job. (I'd recommend javascript for something like this.)

If you are set on doing this in autoit, take a look at> AutoIt CGI Handler (AuCGI) which uses autoit just like PHP.

Or would it be possible to have autoIT let's say open notepad on the user's computer and do some text typing?

Sure, if they download and execute your autoit executable.  I'm sure you could see the huge security risk if this was possible without user interaction.

Yes, the latter is possible. Look at TCPSend() and TCPRecv() in the help file. Also look at Send() for sending the keystrokes to notepad.
