Automate login

Recommended Posts


I am looking for a way to automate login to a Internet Banking website (https://bank.tymedigital.co.za/) and all of the examples that I could found still do not solve my issue with this website.

In order to Login, the user need to enter their Identity Number and Password the click the Login button.

Inspecting the Elements in Chrome are as follow;

Identity Number

<input autocomplete="username" placeholder="Please enter your South African ID number" maxlength="13" type="tel" class="form-control" value="">


<input autocomplete="current-password" placeholder="Enter password" type="password" class="form-control" value="">


<button type="button" class="btn btn-yellow btn-block">Login</button>

Any assistance or directing me to a solution will be appreciated.

Thank you,

Looks like there is only one form, so look at form _IEFrameGetCollection

Then there is IETagNameGetCollection with "input". 

I am too tired to test your site, maybe tomorrow...

Hi @Lourens,

Welcome to the forum. Please post additional details so that we can better understand the issue. Things like --

  • Which browser you are using
  • What isn't working as expected?
  • Post your code (use the <> icon at the top of the editor)


Browser - Internet Explorer

The form fields has no name or id and I can not use _IEGetObjByName or _IEGetObjById

Usually I would use _IEGetObjByName and set the value of the form field with _IEFormElementSetValue as below;

Local $oUsername = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "username")
    Local $oPassword = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "password")

    _IEFormElementSetValue($oUsername, "username")
    _IEFormElementSetValue($oPassword, "password")

Since _IEGetObjByType is not an option, I do not know how to proceed. Using _IEFormGetCollection inform me that there is one form on the page, however, no other useful information is returned that I can use (or I am doing something that I am not suppose to do).

Thank you,

I have found another script by @funkey

I have modified the script, however, the form does not recognize the values submitted even though it is visible in the form fields.

#include <IE.au3>

$Url = 'https://bank.tymedigital.co.za/'
$User = '0000000000000'
$Pwd = 'This_Is_Not_The_Password'

$test = _IEAutoLogin($Url, $User, $Pwd)

Func _IEAutoLogin($sUrl, $sUsername, $sPwd)

    $oIE = _IECreate($sUrl)
    $oForms = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE)
    If @error Then
        Return SetError(1, _IEErrorHandlerDeRegister(), $oIE)
        $Index = 0
        For $oForm In $oForms
            $oFormElements = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForm)
            If IsObj($oFormElements) Then
                $IndexElement = 0
                For $oElement In $oFormElements

                    For $i = $IndexElement - 1 To 0 Step -1
                        $oPwd = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForm, $i)
                        If $oPwd.Type = 'password' Then
                            _IEFormElementSetValue($oPwd, $sPwd)

                    For $i = $IndexElement - 1 To 0 Step -1
                        $oUser = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForm, $i)
                        If $oUser.Type = 'tel' Then
                            _IEFormElementSetValue($oUser, $sUsername)

                    For $i = $IndexElement + 1 To $IndexElement + 10
                        $oButton = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForm, $i)
                        If $oButton.Type = 'button' Then
                            _IEAction($oButton, "click")

                    $IndexElement += 1
            $Index += 1
EndFunc   ;==>_IEAutoLogin


Attached is a screen shot of the error - it still produce the same error whether a valid id number is submitted or not. When an invalid values are submitted the error will be "Invalid SAID or password".

Thank you,

Right... I was just testing with this --

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate("https://bank.tymedigital.co.za/)")
$oForm = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE, 0)
$oUser = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForm, 0)
$oPass = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForm, 1)
_IEFormElementSetValue($oUser, "12345678")
_IEFormElementSetValue($oPass, "abcdefgh")

It's possible that there is underlying events that need to be triggered for the login to work correctly.
