how to connect to already opened browser?

Recommended Posts


I need to connect and perform some automation to an opened already www page.

I tried:

Local $oIE=_IEAttach("Home")

Local $oForm = _IEFormGetObjectByName($oIE,"lastName") ;trying to find a text-box that has name=lastName


when I run it I am getting: Invalid object type.

what's wrong with my understanding how AutoIt works with IE?

Try adding some error checking to see which function(s) are failing.  
You can inspect the value of @error right after the _IEAttach and _IEFormGetObject functions to validate their execution. (error return codes are listed on the linked help file pages).
