Welcome to AutoIt and the forum!

Why do you want to click away the "Invalid User name or Password" window?

Do you send userid/password with your script?

Dear MVP,

I want to click On the OK button and continue the script. This is the error message comes when I enter invalid credentials.

But why do you want to click away the message when the user entered invalid logon credentials? The user will never know what happened.

And a click on the OK button is something the user should do himself.

sudeepa,

water's point is that automatically clicking that button means that the user has no way of knowing that incorrect credentials have been entered - so how are they supposed to know why the login failed? :)

Of course, if the script were trying multiple username/password pairs to see if they worked, I could understand the need to auto-clear the dialog before trying the next one - but you would not be doing anything like that would you? Even if you have carefully obscured the app name. ;)

Looks like he's trying to automate this app. 


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.

That's exactly what I fear the user tries to do :)
