Automating IE/Internet without opening browser...

Recommended Posts



I want to automate stuff in IE, such as going to a web page, sending text/clicks to certain input/combo boxes and retrieving information from webpages without opening a browser window.

Does anyone know of any tutorials that cover this kind of thing? I don't need a specific code, I just want to learn how to do it.

Thanks :D

Yeah, but I don't understand what elements/control IDs etc. are

Sorry, no substitute for reading and learning. You will find literally thousands of posts in the forum discussing just what you are trying to do. Also suggest you examine the links in my sig.


Free Internet Tools: DebugBar, AutoIt IE Builder, HTTP UDF, MODIV2, IE Developer Toolbar, IEDocMon, Fiddler, HTML Validator, WGet, curl

MSDN docs: InternetExplorer Object, Document Object, Overviews and Tutorials, DHTML Objects, DHTML Events, WinHttpRequest, XmlHttpRequest, Cross-Frame Scripting, Office object model

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?
