[SOLVED] Detect email "fields" in a browser


Recommended Posts

Newbie. I am writing a script that requires me to reference the TO:, FROM:, BCC, SUBJECT, BODY of a new email that's being composed.  I need to go directly to these location and work with them.  Is there anyway to detect these in AUTOIT for the present gmail client screen without knowing its resolution and text size?  Any help is greatly appreciated.

I'm using Firefox and gmail as my client side software. I usually email the members of our club twice a month.  It's my habit to place the group consisting of the members into the bcc field of the email so as to shield their email address from the BOTs.  This works fine except occasionally I make an error and stick them accidentally in the TO or CC fields which exposes their addresses.  So wishing to automate this process I wrote a script to accomplish this using mouse co-ords to position the cursor over the appropriate fields I need to reference.  This works fine except when the text size on the browser gets set to a different size, then the mouse co-ords do not correspond to the field locations anymore and the script fails.  So it'd be real convenient to be able to reference the "fields" by some other means.  HTH.

The enclosed script file is started using a hotkey and just fills in the senders name in the TO field, the group's name in the bcc field, the subject in the subject field and ends.  The send operation is handled manually by the user.

This worked for me:  Start Firefox with the Zoom set to apply only to text (View > Zoom > Zoom text only). Then in the script, issue a Zoom reset CTRL+0:  Send ("^0").  Of course, when you're developing and working out the mouse co-ords make sure you started Firefox the same way.

      I have a smartphone and I use it to access my email. However, when composing an email on it I have a problem. My list of phone contacts on the phone is very different from my list of email contacts in my Thunderbird desktop app.  I use my Gmail address book to store primarily phone contacts, and I use Thunderbird for my list of email contacts. I wanted a way to get my Thunderbird contact list onto my smartphone to be able to compose emails to addresses in that list. Here's my solution.
      I wrote a script to export my Thunderbird Personal Address Book to a csv file. It then reads that file and re-writes it with html wrappers around the data to make it into a nicely formatted web page. It then uploads the htm file to my website. On my smartphone, I created a shortcut to the file's URL and whenever I click it, I get the list displayed. Each contact shows name and email address along with a COPY button that will put the address into the clipboard. Then in my email client, I can easily paste that address into it. Alternatively, clicking on the actual email link will open a new message dialog in your email client with that address already entered.
      To use the app, all you need to do is use Thunderbird and have a webserver available. You'll need to download the FTPEX.AU3 file from this website and make a few changes to some constants around line 17 for FTP login info, etc.
