Try _IEAction($o_object, "focus")

I tried that too

My idea was using AutoIT as a load/regression testing tool

So i had around 5 dummy threads waiting for a trigger.

Unfortunately 2 thing were not met

1)they were not able to be isolated i.e they interfeared with each other

2)i could not get the focus of the correct instance of IE

Anyone who has some good code for load testing or

making multiple instances work without interfearing with each other.

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE1 = _IECreate(a url here)

$oIE2 = _IECreate(another url here)

$oIE1 and $oIE2 are now distinct browser instances and you can manipulate them independantly.

If this is not what you are after, please explain more clearly.

DaleHohm ,

But how do I make many instance of the same IE application.

The above code is good for 2 IE instance ,but suppose i want to run 100 instance then how do i do it.

Also the 100 instance should be independent and mustn't interfeare with each other.

They should be able to send the data in the background.

I can try this on an array of 100 but all those different $oIE[] should have to wait at the login screen until all the 100 threads are at the same point and then the trigger should activate.

Then they try to login @ the same time without interfearing each other.

I will write the individual response time into an excel file(suggest if any other good way is possible).@ the server side i will see the results of memstat and other utilities.

Any idea will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

$oIE1 ... $oIE100 could all point to the same URL.

You are not clear about what you mean by "interfere with one another".

Note that _IECreate, _IENavigate and others have noWait parameters taht can be passed to make command execution not stall waiting for page loads to complete.
