Dear All,

The below example open the file browser window, what i need is to set the value automatically. 


; window using ControlSend()

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

Local $oIE = _IE_Example("form")

; Hide the browser window to demonstrate sending text to invisible window
_IEAction($oIE, "invisible")

Local $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, "ExampleForm")
Local $oInputFile = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "fileExample")

; Assign input focus to the field and then send the text string
_IEAction($oInputFile, "click")

; Select existing content so it will be overwritten.
_IEAction($oInputFile, "selectall")

; Get a handle to the IE window.
Local $hIE = _IEPropertyGet($oIE, "hwnd")
ControlSend($hIE, "", "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server; INSTANCE:1]", "This works")

 

Even i have tried to use the below script to append the value. But failed, Any help

ControlFocus("Choose File to Upload","","Edit1")
ControlSetText("Choose File to Upload", "", "Edit1", $fFileName)
ControlSend("Choose File to Upload", "", "","{ENTER}")

Read about java window in my signature.

It seams to be the same problem.

Ps.

You need to select file with file selector from the website.
