IE error with browser security

Recommended Posts

Champak

I am trying to attach a file in a web based mail site. The regular way is to click the "browse" button and open a dialog to select the file to attach. However, I don't want to do this, because everything is suppose to happen in the background. So what I tried to do is set the file path in the input box with _IEFormElementSetValue(), but doing that gives me the error "--> IE.au3 V2.4-0 Error from function _IEFormElementSetValue, $_IEStatus_InvalidObjectType (Browser securuty prevents SetValue of TYPE=FILE)". So I'm wondering if there is another way of doing this, workaround. NOTE that I am able to type the path in the input box if that helps with alternative ideas.

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?
