How to send text to embedded iexplorer

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to create my own GUI for an online game I'm addicted to. I'm new to all of this, so please bear with me. I did search the forum, but couldn't find an answer for what I experience.

The GUI is very simple for the moment, I have an embedded explorer that connects to the game site. At the right side I want some buttons that do certain actions.

One of them is to send text to the game when I press a button.


Global $Width = 872, $Height = 650 
Global $main_frm
Global $Home_Input, $urlinput, $Blank = "", $historystate = 0, $Listview, $find_input

$oIE = ObjCreate("Shell.Explorer.2")
$main_frm = GUICreate("Runescape", $Width, $Height, -1, -1, $WS_SIZEBOX + $WS_MINIMIZEBOX + $WS_CAPTION + $WS_POPUP + $WS_SYSMENU + $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX)
$IEObj = GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE, 2, 2, 785, 640)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Calc", 789, 2, 80, 24)
$Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Notepad", 789, 28, 80, 24)

$Button10 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Send Text", 789, 236, 80, 24)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $main_frm)


While 1
    $msg = GuiGetMsg()
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Case $msg = $Button1
            Run ("Calc.exe")
        Case $msg = $Button2
            Run ("Notepad.exe")
        Case $msg = $Button10
            Send("Text to send to game")

When I press the button the text does not get sent.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Take a look at ControlSend

I presume that when you click the button in your GUI, the GUI is gettin the keyboard focus instead of the embedded IE.

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?
