Go to and get the
"See what URL Netscape is displaying" example.
By reading the code, you can apply also to other application.
I have made a "Macro" program that read and set Textboxes of another commercial app starting from this example.
I hope i help you

The question was answered, but it was my fault for not being more specific. I know how to accomplish the method parduz mentioned, but it doesnt work for AOL. That is the specif question....I will repost with that instead.

Thanks anyway
