11 posts in this topic

Hi, i am new to AutoIt and i have a problem to find the informations i need. so i hope you can help me get my answers :-)

For my project i need AutoIt to open a website and then fill out a form with up to 6 fields for user registration and press the registration link.

is that possible? if it is, how? what functions i need? is there a tutorial or something for internet explorer and accessing sites?

thank you very much

Yes, this is possible. Read about the _IE functions in the AutoIT Help File.

It's in your AutoIt directory on your hard drive (AutoIt3.chm).

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

So you are then talking about the sample code IE6Example.htm

Thank you, but its not really a help for me. i cant find out how to fill out forms and i dont really see what the idea is, is it open the explorer and do this stuff visable but automated or is the better way to just to it somehow in the back?

i just need the script then running in the back and just this form filled out and register clickt.

so nobody has done this before?

Sure we have.

But you'll have to start coding something with _IE* functions first ... hit a road block, post your code, get some help.

Although autoit is easy, there's not just a set of functions to always do exactly what you want, you have to take steps to achieve them.

First examine very closely the _IEExample in the help file. Look at all the function it uses.

Then take a look at:

_IECreate()

_IEForm* functions

Open the helpfile on your disk. Navigate to User Defined Functions, IE Management. The user defined functions are not in the online version you pointed to and the IE6Example.htm you found is not directly related to the _IE* functions.

Searching this forun for the relevant _IE functions will bring you more than you can imagine. Also see the Snippets library referenced in my sig.
