Im trying to send a variable to a javascript input field. The problem is im having to use a mouseclick to make the field active, so my code mouseclicks to the field and then i use Send ($PolicyNumber).

The problem im having is the send command stops after it sends the 1st character.

Here is the bit of code for this.

MouseClick ( "left", 443,268, 1 )

Sleep ( 100 )

Send ($PolicyNumber)

Anyone see anything wrong with this or have another idea for sending the variable?

I'm guessing this is on a webpage? If you could provide a link that might help us help you. Edited by big_daddy

It is more likely that your script is either not sending what you think it is sending or the app is not accepting input as quick as the script can send it (like a javascript input field that performs a lookup after each character is entered...)

Try this debug code:

MsgBox(0, "", $PolicyNumber)
;makes sure what you are sending

MouseClick("left", 443, 268, 1)
Sleep(100)

AutoItSetOption("SendKeyDelay", 300)
Send($PolicyNumber)

as far as a link goes, i cant post one here, i could post the source code. its a company website related to my business with password protection.

It is a javascript input field, if i just goto the site and type it in there is no delay so as far as looking up after each char im not sure.

as var as the variable goes i know that my variable is sending the right data i have tested with msgbox.

i tried the sendkeydelay with no success.

i just tried this also

MouseClick ( "left", 443,268, 1 )
        Sleep ( 100 )
        ClipPut ($PolicyNumber)
        Send ("^v")

it does the same thing, just send the first char.

but if i do ctrl + V on the website without script itll paste it.

so i dunno what the deal is

ok another update :0, i tried msgbox again, now its only returning 1 char in the msgbox debug so i guess there is something wrong with my input field.

$PolicyNumber = GUICtrlCreateInput("Insert Policy Number Here", 8, 108, 145, 21, -1, $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)

Try using:

Send(GUICtrlRead ($PolicyNumber))

You were trying to send the control id of the input.

thanks for the help that worked like a charm.

funny thing is with the following code

Send(GUICtrlRead ($PolicyNumber))

MsgBox(0, "", $PolicyNumber)

it puts the right number on the website but the msg box only shows 1 char :). oh well just as long as the inserting on the website works, thanks alot

1 more quesion.

Does the

Opt("MouseCoordMode", 0)

option fix the mouseclick to no matter what size someone has there window it would still click the same spot?

i need my script to click on the same spot on this website no matter what a person has there resolution set to or if they have there window maximized or not.

Thats because your still using just $PolicyNumber in the MsgBox

Try:

MsgBox(0, "", GUICtrlRead ($PolicyNumber))

You also need to keep in mind that the person may not have as many or more toolbars in thier browser. You might want to look at tabbing to the input. Edited by big_daddy

yes i tried tabbing, for some reason when i tab to it, it just highlights the whole Frameset , it wont tab in the frame? any ideas on the would be great. i really dislike the mouseclick command.

ive been at a loss, but if i could find a way for mouseclick to work no matter what type of screen someone uses i would prob be happy.
