Autoit and WebPages

3 posts in this topic

Quick question,

Is it a good idea (robust) to use Autoit to naviagte web pages. I know when using the window info tool I am unable to retrieve any valuable information about buttons and text boxes ..etc ..on webpages.... and I dont want to use mouse clicks ..... so just wondering if anyone has successfully used autoit with webpages without using mouseclicks ... and how did they achieve this.

Take a look at all of the _IE functions in the help file.
