Logging in via https?

Recommended Posts

Bkid

So I've just started using AutoIt, and it's kind of confusing..

Basically, I want to make a script that logs into a website, but the website sends the login info via https. That being said, I'm assuming regular winhttp isn't going to do the trick.

Now, should I try WinINet as an alternative? The WinINet thread (here) mentioned https in the title, but I wasn't sure how to go about using it..

I know this might sound like something big to start off on, but I enjoy a challenge. :D

Also, I hope it's not something obvious. It's now 6am so I might have missed something obvious. :/

From what I've heard, IE Functions are slow. Isn't there any alternative in autoit?

WinHTTP does support HTTPS, but it is not trivial: MSDN

Oh wow yeah.. It looks like you have to go though a bit more, but as long as it works then I'm willing to do it.

Balderdash! Hearsay! Unfounded drivel!

That said :D , browser creation can be considered slow but once that is accomplished things work quite fast. If you don't need client-side processing, a content layout engine, authentication, CSS etc. that are features of a browser then by all means use low level functions like INetGet or direct TCP/IP calls for data. There are many benifits to having access to the browser and browser DOM for other functions.

The IE functions work the same for https as they do for http. There are literally thousands of examples in the forum as well as the helpfile. Try Search.

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?

I'll think about it. :D

In the meantime I'll still keep considering the alternatives.
