Reading Data from a web Form

9 posts in this topic

I tried to search for anythig similar, but the search doen't return anything. Every moring I have to open a website that gives me the daily asignments: Ticket number, Site Address, Problem description, and Contact. I print this page for every ticket I get (about 10 a day).

What I wanted to do was to get the data from the Web Form, and send it to a text file so I can read it on My PDA (save a few trees) . How can I retrieve data from an open Web form?

Any help or sugestions that would lead me to a resolution will be greatly appreciated

IE.au3 gives you many options for opening and parsing the content of web pages. See my sig for a pointer and reply 3 of that post for examples.

I went through the IE.au3 file, but didn't find any examples, can you be more specific?

Not all login forms are the same as hotmails login form. So you have to look at the source code for the login window and find the name of the form, username, and password. I changed the form names accordingly, but you may need to open the form a little differently.

#include <IE.au3>

; Create a browser window and navigate to hotmail
$oIE = _IECreate()
_IENavigate($oIE, "http://magic75.nycenet.edu/magictsd/prelogin.htm")

; get pointers to the login form and username and password fields
$o_form = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, "frmLogin")
$o_login = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($o_form, "UID")
$o_password = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($o_form, "PWD")

; Set field values and submit the form
_IEFormElementSetValue($o_login, "your username here")
_IEFormElementSetValue($o_password, "your password here")
_IEFormSubmit($o_form)

Exit

It's so refreshing to have the voice or reason and intelligence jump into the middle of a conversation like this. Thanks for sharing.
