IE firewall automation

Recommended Posts


I need some help on this one - Is there a way to automate a "behind the scene's" login process. Every hour I have to type my username and password into a pop up box that wants me to pass my credentials through the firewall's IP. Is there a way to automate this? I have this code but it doesn't seem to work with this:

#include <IE.au3>

$Url = 'URL'
$User = 'Username'
$Pwd = 'Password'

$test = _IEAutoLogin($Url, $User, $Pwd)

Func _IEAutoLogin($sUrl, $sUsername, $sPwd)
$oIE = _IECreate($sUrl)
$oForms = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE)
If @error Then
  Return SetError(1, _IEErrorHandlerDeRegister(), $oIE) ;'no forms --> no login'
  $Index = 0
  For $oForm In $oForms
   $oFormElements = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForm)
   If IsObj($oFormElements) Then
    $IndexElement = 0
    For $oElement In $oFormElements
     If $oElement.Type = 'password' Then
      $oPwd = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, $oElement.Name)
      _IEFormElementSetValue($oPwd, $sPwd)
      For $i = $IndexElement - 1 To 0 Step -1
       $oUser = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForm, $i)
       If $oUser.Type = 'text' Then
        _IEFormElementSetValue($oUser, $sUsername)
      If $oForm.action <> "0" And Not StringInStr($oForm.action, '.php') Then  ;submit
       _IEFormSubmit($oForm, 0)
      Else  ;click
       For $i = $IndexElement + 1 To $IndexElement + 10 ;check the next 10 elements
        $oButton = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForm, $i)
        If $oButton.Type = 'submit' Then
         _IEAction($oButton, "click")
      Return SetExtended(_IEErrorHandlerDeRegister(), $oIE)
     $IndexElement += 1
   $Index += 1
Return SetError(2, _IEErrorHandlerDeRegister(), $oIE) ;no password-field found
EndFunc   ;==>_IEAutoLogin

Any help would be great!

I am not sure if I understand what you are looking for exactly. I am hearing that you are on a computer and there is a password authentication box that pops up every hour and you want to have a script automatically fill in your credentials when the box shows up? I think I am hearing that you don't even want to see the window. Are you on some sort of business network and there is a policy coming from the DNS server that requires repeated logins? I can think of a way for autoit to listen for a window to popup and then automate the filling out of a  form when it does. I need to better understand what the window looks like and is it named the same thing everytime it pops up? Is it possible to logout and then log back in prior to the 1 hour time limit that will prevent the window from popping up? Can you logout/login through the command prompt?

Get Scite to add a popup when you use a 3rd party UDF -> http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/scite/docs/SciTE4AutoIt3/user-calltip-manager.html

I was able to get a screenshot for you - @computergroove - you are correct - I don't want to see this box pop-up but everything I have tried doesn't work

      I am having a hard time understanding why this is not working. I was hoping some one could help explain it to me. 
      $tags = $oIE.document.GetElementsByTagName("input") For $tag in $tags $class_value = $tag.GetAttribute("class") If string($class_value) = "fTs-p3298-l0 wplEditControl" Then $target = $tag ExitLoop EndIF Next MsgBox(0,"",$target) If $target = "fTs-p3298-l0 wplEditControl" THEN MsgBox(0,"","itworked") I have tried 
       MsgBox(0,"",$target.Attribute)  MsgBox(0,"",$target.Value)  MsgBox(0,"",$target.InnerText) I would expect to see this in the msgbox
      fTs-p3298-l0 wplEditControl

      I am trying to grab the id "in2xk_26" however it the characters before the underscore always change. (in the name too)
      Is there a way I can find a id or name by the last 3 charcters?
      Using something like "stringright?"
      So I would want to search for just "_26" in this case.
      This is assuming that there are no other _26

      #include <Excel.au3> #include <IE.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> Global $iMousespeed = 25,$target = "",$TagName = "",$Value = "",$Atrribute = "" $oIE = _IEAttach("MEDITECH") $TagName = "input" $Value = "in2xk_26" $Attribute = "id" $tags = $oIE.document.GetElementsByTagName($TagName) ;TagName ------ MAKE SURE TO NAME THESE For $tag in $tags $class_value = $tag.GetAttribute($Attribute) ;Attribute ------ MAKE SURE TO NAME THESE If string($class_value) = $Value Then ;Value ------ MAKE SURE TO NAME THESE $target = $tag $iScreenX = _IEPropertyGet($target, "screenx") $iScreenY = _IEPropertyGet($target, "screeny") $iWidth = _IEPropertyGet($target, "width") $iHeight = _IEPropertyGet($target, "height") $oMouseCords = MouseMove($iScreenX + $iWidth / 2, $iScreenY + $iHeight / 2, $iMousespeed) MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT) ExitLoop EndIf Next

      I was wondering how I read data inside of a iframe. I would like to be able to click something inside a iframe. However, I can't even find the tag. 
      The id and name change all the time so I can't use those. 
      The code highlighted in blue is what I am trying to click. (second picture)
      Here is what I have tried.
      $target = "" $tags = $oIE.document.GetElementsByTagName("div") For $tag in $tags $class_value = $tag.GetAttribute("class") If string($class_value) = "s_92 altstyle s_93 s_94" Then $target = $tag ConsoleWrite("Tag Found " & $target.outerText&@CRLF) ExitLoop EndIf Next

      WinActivate("MEDITECH - Internet Explorer") Sleep (500) $oIE = _IEAttach("MEDITECH") $oDiv1 = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "sysmenu-searchbarbutton") _IEAction($oDiv1, "click") I am just trying to click the little magnifying glass, next to the gear button with no luck. I was hoping someone might have an idea why this is not working?

      I am trying to type a name in patient summary search box. How should I go about doing this. I am clearly not doing it right. (Attached Picture of HTML code.)
      This is what I have tried. I assume this is not working because it is not a form? 
      WinActivate("MEDITECH - Internet Explorer")       Sleep (500)    $oIE = _IEAttach("MEDITECH")    $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, "systemMenu")    $oText = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "sysmenu-searchbarinput") _IEFormElementSetValue($oText, "Hey! This works!")
