A VbScript Tutorial on Internet Explorer: HTML Automation

1 post in this topic

Hello! I'm new to the w3school forum here, and I just wanted to share a tutorial I made that shows you how to automate the logging into facebook without SendKeys: http://therevisionist.org/software-engineering/qtpuft/1-vbscript-basics/13-vbscript-internet-explorer-html-automation/

 

I've looked into sendkeys before, but I encoutered a problem where the SendKey's keystrokes activated on my desktop; the Internet Explorer (IE) was not the active window. I couldn't figure out how to make the IE window the active window, so I used HTML to identify the ID of objects in the IE window.

 

And as a separate questions, do you know why Sendkeys does not work with the IE browser? Do you recommend any other alternatives, other than using HTML ID?
