autologin to a PITA database help! :)

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I've got the following code set up to login to a web database, which also has its code included below. It won't login, and I'm trying to find out why. It's an internal database, so people can't really see the login page from outside the company. Sorry :P

The database front end is some really screwy java scripting, and I'm wondering if that's not messing it up?

Have a look and tell me what you think:

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate("generic database website here")

;~ _IENavigate($oIE, "generic database website here")

; get pointers to the login form and username and password fields

$o_form = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, "e_login_main_start")

$o_login = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($o_form, "loginuser")

$o_password = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($o_form, "loginpass")

; Set field values and submit the form

_IEFormElementSetValue($o_login, "testlogin")

_IEFormElementSetValue($o_password, "testpass")

;~ Sleep(2000)



Now, here is the source code of the webpage. I believe I've correctly identified the formname, loginname, and password parts of the form. However, nothing ever keys into the page when I use the macro.

Any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong?

Woot - NM, I found what I was looking for in another thread. As often as I hear "Search," I still don't ever perform an adequate job of it.

Thanks a ton!
