Manual User Account Input

Recommended Posts

Learner202

Hey all,

I'm relatively new to Autoit and I'm working on a script that at one point requires the user to manually input their account username and password into a website. My current thinking is that I would write a Do loop to have the script sleep until the user manually hits the login button on the website (identified by id in my script)...does that seem like a good standard way to do it? I'd rather have the user input this account info directly into the site rather than create an input box inside the script. 

 

Thanks very much in advance for any help you all could offer!

Hi, Learner202, welcome to the forum. If you can accurately get the login button id, and simply sleeping until the user hits that button, then that is obviously a better method than presenting inputboxes, and then trying to send the value of said inputboxes to the web page. Is that your only question?

Thanks for verifying my logic JLogan!

Would I use a variant of _IsPressed on the button id to check if the button has been clicked? Figuring out the proper function to use for that bit has me tied up.
