How do you select a input box on IE

4 posts in this topic

I'm have a search web page running in IE that has a input box. I need to make sure the cursor is in that box before I send data to it. How do you do that with Autoit and IE?

Thanks

_IEFormElementGetObjByName(..., ...)

_IEFormElementSetValue

or

_IEAction(,,,. "focus")

see the helpfile.

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

Thanks DaleHohm

I've tried that but can't get it to focus on the field name which is _ctl1:s:qry

It'll be easier to help you if you post your code and the source HTML or url of the page. (Don't laugh at me Dale :whistle:)
