so can you log in to website without the browser showing? for example u could fill automaticly username and password forms, and then use post method to use them?

yes, you could use the IE UDF's to do that, however you have to check continually to make sure they don't change the forms around. it seems html might be an easier choice for that

what are you trying to do, like just make a shortcut to avoid typing in passwords?

anyhow, you should be able to find the reference in IE Management under the User Defined Functions in the help file

I found example from help file

; *******************************************************
; Example 3 - Login to Hotmail
; *******************************************************
#include <IE.au3>
; Create a browser window and navigate to hotmail
$oIE = _IECreate ("http://www.hotmail.com")

; get pointers to the login form and username, password and signin fields
$o_form = _IEFormGetObjByName ($oIE, "f1")
$o_login = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($o_form, "login")
$o_password = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($o_form, "passwd")
$o_signin = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($o_form, "SI")

$username = "name"
$password = "password"

; Set field values and submit the form
_IEFormElementSetValue ($o_login, $username)
_IEFormElementSetValue ($o_password, $password)
_IEAction ($o_signin, "click")

Pretty good but could u use POST method from html to sign in instead of that "_IEAction ($o_signin, "click")" And can you do that without browser showing?

Please look at the helpfile for _IECreate. There is a parameter for visibility.
