PHP form automation?

5 posts in this topic

I am writing a program for a collegue, and basically I need to automate submission of a PHP form on a website that I do not moderate.

So, is there an easy way to automate PHP form submission? I have goofed around with IE.au3 but I can't really get the _IEformoption() function to work.

Also, can this be done in the background?

This should be possible with Ie.au3 as far as i know. I would try posting what you have in the ie.au3 thread.

Yes, IE.au3 is the way to go unless you can submit the data via url such as http://phpscript.php?data=datahere

can you tell us the url or give us an example of the php

To interact with form elements, you'll need the form collection object variable in the document.

Taken straight out of the help file:

#include <IE.au3>

_IEFormGetCollection ( ByRef $o_object [, $i_index = -1] )

should return the form collection, you then might want to start checking shich items need filling and to submit, use

_IEFormSubmit ( ByRef $o_object [, $f_wait = 1] )

Yes, this can all be done. There are examples in the helpfile demonstrating such.

It will be best for you to post some code that you've tried and what trouble you're having with it.
