Internet Explorer Automation

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

Despite searching help and buying the .pdf ( Your Quick Guide ), I'm still at a complete loss as to how to

begin automating Internet Explorer.

I do a lot of Powershell Scripting..I thought that AutoIT would be pretty straightforward to pick up, but

I'm really struggling.

Please, could someone point me in the right direction. Maybe a sample script to even just activate IE and

send some text, move the mouse and send a click, would be great.

I don't mean to sound ungrateful, but I've posted here before and got replies like "Yes it can be done". Or "Yeah thats easy." I'd really appreciate a little bit more. Normally with a new technology I buy the book, read it then expect to be able to do a little bit with it. AutoIT not so, which is a shame as it seems to offer so much.

Thanks,

Stuart

Browse to the au3 install path and read the UDF help, under IE Management there are lot's and lot's of examples.

Oh thanks a lot :) I really found some nice functions, however i don't understand how you get the value of a form on a site..

Can anyone give an example code of filling for. example the form of hotmail signup? or another site, doesn't matter..

Would be greatly appreciated :lmao:

There are examples in the help file. Which function are you looking at? What is your question about that function's example script?

You will have to learn the basics of HTML and the Document Object Model (DOM), examples of which are in the example scripts in the help file.
