Select form data -> Copy -> Paste to different site

Recommended Posts


OK, I know there has to be a way to do this but for the life of me, I haven't been able to figure it out and I have been working on it all day. First, this application needs to be non-browser specific (so the _IE modules are out). Second, I have been able to check the active window to make sure the user is where they are supposed to be when they launch this application. But on that page they are supposed to be on is a HTML address form that already has data. I need to copy all of that data, store it, and paste it into another website. 

Now I have used AutoIT years ago and it worked beautifully, but the past few years, I haven't touched it so I am rusty. I tried using the recorder, but that gave me coordinates and I know that's not going to work. Could someone please point me in the right direction? Here's what I have so far (my several failed attempts have been commented out):


; change WinTitleMatchMode default from 1 (match title from start) to 2 (match any substring)
Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <IE.au3>
#Include <WinAPI.au3>

HotKeySet ('!x','_Exit'); Alt+Esc = Exit
;HotKeySet ('!c','_Clip'); Alt+c = copy
;HotKeySet ('!v','_Paste'); Alt+v = paste
HotKeySet ('!a','_Activate'); Alt+a = activate

While '1'
Sleep ('100'); Makes CPU usage 0%

Func _Activate ()
  If WinActive("Sales Record") Then
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "WinActive" & @CRLF & "The correct window is active.")
    Local $sText = WinGetText("[ACTIVE]")
    ; Display the window text.
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $sText)
    ;Local $oIE = _IEAttach("Sales Record")
    $hWnd = WinGetHandle("[ACTIVE]", "")
    ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $hWnd)
    ;_WinAPI_SetFocus( $hWnd )
    ;ControlFocus($hWnd, "", "buyercontactname")

    ;MsgBox(64, "", $hWnd)
    ;Local $oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "input")
    ;For $oInput In $oInputs
        ;MsgBox(64, oInput.name)
        ;MsgBox(64, oInput.value)
        ;if $oInput.name == "fsubmit" And $oInput.value == "Return to Login Page" Then
        ; your code here
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "WinActive" & @CRLF & "You have the incorrect window active.")

Func _Exit ()
