How to send text to embedded iexplorer

2 posts in this topic

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.

#include<GUIConstants.au3>

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)

$oIE.navigate("http://www.runescape.com")

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

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.
