Hi

I want to handle multiple internet explorer forms within an application and dynamically 'drive' these SSL forms. For example (and this isn't the application) Load 5 instances of www.hotmail.com, populate the log-in and password fields and press the log-on button. Is there a way of doing this ?

The actual reason is to have a program spend all day loading and capturing information from a banks online broking pages.

Cheers

Stewart

Basically, to get things to work you need the names for test boxes that collects information about user and password, populate them and submit with the button. At link, there are tips to doing it programatically.
There is a simplest way also.
If you need more help, just ask.
