Hey everyone, I have searched, and have not found anything... So I would appreciate any help.

My company uses an intra-net based ticketing system, and I want to make a shell app that can being me to specified pages based on the input...

Basically, I want to input:

Ticket Number: "input here"

and have it bring me to

\\address.com\ticketnumber...

I need a few other fields, but they all follow the same format...

Are there any example scripts that can get me started?

Thanks.

I'd probably take a look at Dale's IE.au3 -- consider using an embedded window.

For Base functionality, all you need is an inputbox in a while loop or using a hotkey.

;something along the lines of the following:
func _OpenTicket($id)
$id = inputbox(.....)
$url = "blahblah" & $id
_IENavigate($url)
endfunc

pls note the above is pseudo code only, refer to docs for actual usage.

I've had experience with doing stuff like this. Is your ticket system a home grown app or is it off the shelf such as HP Service Desk or CA Unicenter ServicePlus Service Desk? Edited by Volly

It's a home grown, but it is really simple...

Basically the whole url ends with the ticket ID... So I just need something with an input box that will open IE when clicked with the pre-defined URL, and add the suffix stated in the input box...

I'll take a look at Dale's Thanks guys. Let me know if you find anything else. I appreciate it.
