MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Success", "Value set to 'This works'")

proposal on reflection:


MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Success", "Value set to 'This works'")

Add comments something like this

Now you can use the Send() or ControlSetText() to set the value of the FileName field in the resulting window, type: FileOpenDialog.

Automatic ticket cleanup.

comment:2 follow-up: Changed 10 years ago by Jpm

In fact this example has nothing to do with _IEFormElementSetValue().
I proposed to remove it

comment:3 Changed 10 years ago by mlipok

I think 5th example
was missing link of, and very often asked question on forum

I think it is necessary, but would require changes.

Replying to Jpm:

In fact this example has nothing to do with _IEFormElementSetValue().

This example Was intended to indicate how the set the <input type="file" name="fileExample" value="c:\test.txt">

But I see even the header needs to be changed, that should sound something like this:

Clicking in <input type="file" name="fileExample">, in order to allow changes in value, by specifying the appropriate file in the window that appears (FileOpenDialog caused by IE).

Perhaps it is a good example but nut for this function

comment:6 Changed 10 years ago by mlipok

I leave it to you to decide

comment:7 Changed 10 years ago by Jpm

If it is a good example just tell me for which function

comment:8 Changed 10 years ago by Jpm

I will suppress the example
When we can reuse it I will add it in the specific function example
