This isn't really a request for help, unless someone is bored. Recently i've been trying to find a way to POST data to a webpage. I first tried doing it through the IE 2.0 automation library, but the navigate method has turned wrong. It's probably my fault. Anyways, here are the 4 ways I have tried, 2 work, 2 dont.

All the scripts use the following information:

Some benchmarks on the 2 working ways.

TCP uses the HTTP UDF and INET uses WININET.

A breakdown of each function and the time it takes to complete:

TCP

-----------------------------------

_HTTPConnect - 98.74

_HTTPPost - 0.49

_HTTPRead - 908.53

_HTTPClose - 0.24

------------------------------

TOTAL - 1008.22

INET

---------------

_InternetOpen - 5.48

_InternetConnect - 0.57

_HttpOpenRequest - 0.62

_HttpSendRequest - 151.7

_InternetRead - 3.15

_InternetCloseHandle - 0.33

------------------------------------

TOTAL - 162.14

Averages with just a POST, no reading of response.

----------------------------------------------------------

TCP 54.08

INET 125.40

Average with POST and reading response.

------------------------------------------------------------

TCP 947.87

INET 131.80

It seems the _HTTPRead could use some tweaking. None the less I would recommended TCP for instance of just POSTing and INET for times when you need a more advanced option (cookies, proxies, reading..etc)

Now for the two ways that I failed to get to work (my fault). Perhaps a non-newbie can easily fix it and help out anyone else who want to use these ways, for whatever reason.

Using IE.au3 : http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=25629

$o_IE = _IECreate ("about:blank",0,1)
$o_IE.navigate($URL, 0, 0, $PostData ,$Header)

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default....equest_send.asp

I noticed the same thing and have been struggling for hours. Read more about that here.

I wonder if (read: 'hope that') someone will write a fix / working example using IE.au3 soon.

This one is really nice..(Alot of people will need this...)

How did you do the benchmark???

I can fix the object one.. I want to do benchmark to the other Ways so to know which way is the fastest...

Dim $obj = ObjCreate ("WinHttp.WinHttpRequest.5.1")
$obj.Open("PUT", $URL, false)
$obj.Send($PostData)
QuickOutput("Response.html",$obj.ResponseText, 2)oÝ÷ Ûú®¢×,ɦèºÛazãyËh¦Ø¨*.綶Ê&zuêì~*쵫­¢+ØìÀÌØí]¥¹!ÑÑÀ¹MÑIÅÕÍÑ!È ÅÕ½Ðí!½ÍÐÅÕ½Ðì°ÅÕ½Ðí!=MQ95¹½´ÅÕ½Ðì¤(ìÀÌØí]¥¹!ÑÑÀ¹MÑIÅÕÍÑ!È ÅÕ½ÐíUÍȵ¹ÐÅÕ½Ðì°ÅÕ½Ðí5½é¥±±¼Ô¸À¡]¥¹½ÝÌìTì]¥¹½ÝÌ9PÔ¸Ä층ULìÉØèĸ䤭¼¼ÈÀÀàÀÔÈäÀإɽà¼Ì¸ÀÅÕ½Ðì¤(ìÀÌØí]¥¹!ÑÑÀ¹MÑIÅÕÍÑ!È ÅÕ½ÐíÁÐÅÕ½Ðì°ÅÕ½ÐíÑáн¡Ñµ°±ÁÁ±¥Ñ¥½¸½á¡Ñµ°­áµ°±ÁÁ±¥Ñ¥½¸½áµ°íÄôÀ¸ä°¨¼¨íÄôÀ¸àÅÕ½Ðì¤(ìÀÌØí]¥¹!ÑÑÀ¹MÑIÅÕÍÑ!È ÅÕ½ÐíÁе1¹ÕÅÕ½Ðì°ÅÕ½Ðí¡±¸µULíÄôÀ¸Ü±¸íÄôÀ¸ÌÅÕ½Ðì¤(ìÀÌØí]¥¹!ÑÑÀ¹MÑIÅÕÍÑ!È ÅÕ½ÐíÁе¹½¥¹ÅÕ½Ðì°ÅÕ½Ðíé¥À±±ÑÅÕ½Ðì¤(ìÀÌØí]¥¹!ÑÑÀ¹MÑIÅÕÍÑ!È ÅÕ½ÐíÁе

This is the lowest amount of headers that still give me a good login sign..

As you can see i have all the headers sent by my firefox browser..

And i canceled them one by one,,, and it still work but if i remove one of the current active headers it dont work...

Thank you about the info about wininet.dll I consider using it but its seems to much code.. i think i use winhttprequest.

Thank you

Hey guys,

I made an example page at www.sabbgrafix.com/welcome.php which is an extremely simple post example. I use an ISSET function to display post information, if there is any submitted. The post info is "name=yourNameHere".

I used the following code, but when I try and return the body of the page after the post request is sent, I get nothing. But the @error is 0 and the other attributes state that it successfully connected and sent.

#include <IE.au3>
#include <http.au3>

$Header = "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded"
$Host = "www.sabbgrafix.com"
$File = "/welcome.php"
$URL = "http://" & $Host & $File
$PostData = "name=steve"



$Socket = _HTTPConnect($Host)
_HTTPPost($Host, $File, $Socket, $PostData)
$recv = _HTTPRead($Socket,0)
MsgBox(0,"","BODY: "&$recv&" ERROR: "&@error)
_HTTPClose($Socket)

Any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong, or anyone know of any other more efficient ways to send POST requests to sites via AutoIt?

Thanks guys!

-Steve

this is a late reply but, you forgot to issue _HTTPConnect("host.com", port)

Example:

$hsock = _HTTPConnect("www.google.com", 80)
_HTTPGet("www.google.com", "/", $sock)
