ejs Posted April 20, 2008 Report Share Posted April 20, 2008 Has anyone successfully used controls for fields, buttons, and graphical links on a web page (e.g., name, address, password, SUBMIT etc.)? Or, if you encountered the same problem that I describe below, did you come up with any workarounds, perhaps that do not use controls? The Macro Express help file warns "Sometimes the only control in a given program is the window or dialog that pops up when the program starts." This appears to be the case with all of the web browsers I tried, which means that controls are useless for filling out web forms. (My objective was to have a macro that fills in the username and password on web pages using controls in order to circumvent spyware that could log keys if macro express were to use text type or clipboard paste to populate the web form fields.) Here the results from the Macro Express get control utility on each of the browsers I tried. Windows XP SP2 - IE 7.0 - the entire window is the only control with control class name = Internet Explorer_server Windows XP SP2 - Netscape 7.2 - the entire window is the only control with control class name = MozillaWindowsClass Windows XP SP1 - IE 6.0 - the entire window is the only control with control class name = Internet Explorer_server Windows XP SP1 - Netscape 7.2 - the entire window is the only control with control class name = MozillaWindowsClass To benchmark that I am doing this right, I did successfully use the get control utility on the Microsoft windows calculator application to ensure that it recognized each calculator button and field as a control.
