IE Automate Scripts

8 posts in this topic

I'll ask my question first; then give you reasons to answer it:

Are there any scripts that I can work off of to automate repetitive log-ins / adding information through Internet Explorer?

I own an insurance agency and it takes forever to quote insurance through multiple companies. I would like to automate the process with a macro type script. We currently use MacroExpress, but if the internet slows down the macro messes up. So I need a wait function for IE to catch up. Or if we are quoting different coverages; Macro Express cannot recognize and change to different coverages.

If I had an example macro IE script to work off; I could edit it myself to suit my needs.

Why you should help me

I'll make a decent donation to AutoIt if I can get it to work

I will help further along the community by recommending to other agencies

They will donate to AutoIt

I will do most of the work, I just need some direction

By the way, I accidently posted this in the GUI forum. Please do not think I am double posting.

Thanks! That helped me a lot. I have now got it to log into www.safeconow.com . Now I need to figure out how to click on a certain link to quote.

Here is my script so far:

#include <IE.au3>
 
; Create a browser window and navigate to hotmail
$oIE = _IECreate ("https://safesite.safeco.com/dpec/signin.asp?OriginalURL=/safeconow/default.aspx")
 
; Get pointers to the login form and username, password, and signin fields
$o_form = _IEFormGetObjByName ($oIE, "frmsignin")
$o_login = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($o_form, "txtUserID")
$o_password = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($o_form, "txtPassword")
$o_signin = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($o_form, "btnLogin")
 
$username = "XXXXXXX"
$password = "XXXXX"
 
; Set field values and submit the form
_IEFormElementSetValue ($o_login, $username)
_IEFormElementSetValue ($o_password, $password)
_IEAction ($o_signin, "click")

_IELoadWait($oIE)
_IELinkClickByText($oIE, "Personal")
_IELoadWait($oIE)
_IELinkClickByText($oIE, "Quote & Issue New Business")
WinWaitActive("Quote and Issue New Business")


Exit

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?
