Sending a carriage return to a form element

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I am trying to process 50 numbers at a time on a certain website. You can enter up to 50 numbers in a textarea before submitting, but I can not figure out how to get one number per line in the textarea without sending "{ENTER}", because I want it to run in the background.

What I would like to have do is:

While 1

count = count + 1

read number from flat file

*enter number and carriage return to form element

if count = 50 then

count = 0

submit form => process further

end if

Wend

*problem area

I am currently using the following code to set the value

_IEFormElementSetValue ($oNumber, $number)

Thanks.

I think I am going about this wrong, because each time I go through the loop, I am resetting the form element value. I guess what I need to do is go through the loop 50 time, writting a string with $number & @crlf (50) times. I am having trouble with the logic, any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Try constructing your entire form value in a variable first and then write that variable to the input area on the form. Your string variable would contain 50 number + @CR pairs.

like this?

$tmp = ""
For $x = 1 to 50
$tmp = $tmp & $x
if $x < 50 Then $tmp = $tmp & @lf
Next
_IEFormElementSetValue ($oNumber, $tmp)
