"Input string was not in a correct format". Embedded IE Window

Recommended Posts

GoogleDude

Strange thing happening.

I have created an Embedded IE window in a simple GUI. The Embedded IE window loads a ASPX webform that I have set to auto fill with my login info. But when the form gets submitted using _IEAction($oSubmit, "click")  a dialog comes up titled "Message from webpage" saying "Input string was not in a correct format."

If I take the same form fill data but take it out of the embedded ie window and just use _iecreate it works just fine.

If I let the form fill in the embedded ie window but not submit the form and I manually click the submit button on the webpage I get the same error. If I retype any of the data feilds in the form with the same data and then click the submit button it submits the form just fine.  It seams to have something to do with the fact that the ie window is embedded in a gui or something.

I googled for the error and all I can find it a bunch of stuff talking about .NET and ASPX on the server and such.

the form in question is a login.aspx type form with 3 simple fields.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,

GD

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Well. Its a login form for a public http (not https) server that my company uses. I could provide my code but the URL and login creds would be masked.

That is a snippet of the code I have. The url and login info has been changed for obvious reasons. Not sure how that affects you being able to help without a crystal ball. :)

I could maybe provide the actual url via a pm or something but not the user/password. But even if I automate the wrong user/pass via _IEFormElementSetValue it gives gives that error.

Come to find out it didnt like having _IEFormReset in there. Once I removed _IEFormReset the form submits just fine. Is that by design? I was hoping to have that in for in the off chance it used any rouge saved form fill data or something.
