hi there, me again :)

I have a new problem...


I use a little piece of code to submit forms with webbrowser :

I can fill all fields but the problem is on submitting the form.

here is my code :

For q = 0 To doc.Forms(Form).length - 1
  If doc.Forms(Form)(q).Name = "name" Then
     doc.Forms(Form)(q).Value = "Oliver"
  End If
next q

'submit
doc.Forms(0).submit

----------------------------------------------

problem is doc.Forms(0).submit.... It works fine with a html doc I made with this code :

html>
body>
a name="post">font size="5">b>Post a message/b>/font>/a>

  form>
INPUT name="name" type=textarea size="20" >

INPUT name="deuxieme" type=textarea size="20" >

INPUT name="troisieme" type=textarea size="20" >

TEXTAREA NAME="def" COLS=40 ROWS=4 WRAP=physical>/TEXTAREA>

INPUT name="go" type="submit" value="Submit">
input type="reset" value="Clear" name="reset">
  /form>
/body>
/html>

BUT, when I use it with some other forms, I get an error code 438

object error....

any help is as always welcome

There is NO input tag with the name "submit"? If so, rename it...

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.....


the value on the form that doesn't work is

    <html>
 <body>
 <form>
 <input name="name" >
 <input type="submit" value="submit" name="submit">
 </form>
 <br><br>
 </body>
 </html>

seems to be good, isn't it ?

No, it is not. When you call submit it want to give you the submit-button. Not the submit method!
Get rid of the
name="submit"
or rename it to something like:
name="mysubmit"

yep....

I know we can use a proxy with winsock or inet, don't remember....

anyway when you post a message on some board, they catch you're IP, some people don't want their IP to be knew...

so the only is (I think) to use an anonymous proxy....

so is there anyway to 'tell' the webbrowser to use a defined proxy before connect to an url ?
