How to send value to OCX input area in IE11

12 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Need to do an  login in IE.

There are 2 input field:

First input field is a normal html text input element

<input name="username" id = "username" type="text" value="">

Second input field is an OCX security password input plugin.

<object id="password" classid="CLSID:xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxx-xxxxxxx">
    <param name="input0" value="undefined" valueType="">
    <param name="maxlength" value="30" valueType="">
    <param name="input2" value="[\s\S]*" valueType="">
</object>

I can use _IEGetObjById("$oIE","username") to obtain first input field. And use _IEFormElementSetValue function set it's value.

But when met the second one, i 'm in trouble:

I have tried:

1.

Local $password = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "password")
ConsoleWrite("Get password" & @error & @CRLF)
_IEAction($password,"focus")
send("A")
Sleep(5000)
send("{tab}")

with this try: i can put focus in the password ocx field, But when send("A") , maybe ,some times could work. say 2 in 10, When i send("Aabcdsad"), it was never working.

But when 5 seconds up, the focus can move to next item.

 

2. I tried focus on "username"  then send({"tab"}) move to "password", and send("xxxxx"),fail again.

3.I   tried _IEFormElementSetValue($password, "xxxxx") with finger cross, of course, fail again.

4.....

newbie with autoit family. need guide.

Thanks ahead... (Using IE11)

Never had to work with that type a field...you could look at controlsend, which will have the same drawbacks as the send...look at AutoItSetOption, and increase the send length, as well as the wait between sends.  Increase that as much as required to get near 100% success rate.

Get the handle of the window via _IEPropertyGet($oIE, "hwnd") to use in ControlSend.

With either send or control send, make sure thw window is active prior....WinActivate

Hi

Using autoit windows info get:

"password"  field 's Advanced mode string : "[CLASS:ATL:Edit; INSTANCE:2]",

"username" field's Advanced mode string : "[CLASS:Internet Explore Server; INSTANCE1]"

then:

$win  = _IEPropertyGet($oIE,"hwnd")
$result = ControlSend("$win","","Advanced mode string","TestString")

 

i use this on username field, it runs pretty as my  wanted , TestString is showed , and $result is 10.

But when i use this on password field, $result is still 10, but TestString is never showed.

......

Try like this:

AutoItSetOption("SendKeyDelay",30)
AutoItSetOption("SendKeyDownDelay",30)
WinActivate($win)
ControlSend($win,"","","TestString")

 

 

Thank you again jdelaney.

try this way again. Still username is ok, password is not.

Then i try ClipPut("TestString"), then Send("^v"),fail.

And most important: i  use win+r : then "osk" open a soft keyborad, press keys in it. this ocx input field is still blank. can't accept any input!

OK, let's have a rest . change some  mind.

try it once more with send() instead of controlsend...leave the autoitsetoptions and winactivate though...after you tab into the field.

In fact , after with 2 Opt("xxxDelay","30"),then  controlsend fail , I do try send() again (with focus on),

Did not get luck.

This input field can not get any input character through a soft keyboard such as osk.

Final move:

Use winio.dll, manipulate keyboard port directly. 

Wish me luck.  And report later...

Because the password protected ocx input filed blocks post_message and keybd_event, so I can't use send() or Controlsend() to send  any character to this field.

Finally i use WinIo to solved the problem.  

Thanks you for your guide, Jdelaney,mLipok.

Hi I have encountered exactly the same problem. May I have more details how you use winio.dll to solve the problem? it would be appreciated if you could put some source code as well. Thanks.
