Hi All,
I have Delphi 4.
Here is what I want to do:

I want people to fill in their information once. Then, use the HTML control to go to my site and fill in the form with the information they previously filled in.

I was thinking parsing the form out of the HTML code and regenerating the form and submitting that.

OR

Have a control frame and use javascript to post to the "form" frame.

Any ideas? I just want theories really.. maybe a bit of code to illustrate?

if you have small amount of fields then you could make smth like :
an ISAPI dll for the server or a cgi app ..
so y0u simply call your url with params like:

const base = 'http://url.com/isapi/parseuser.dll/parse?';
var query: string;
begin
  query:=Format('user=%s&password=%s', [Username, Password]);
  WholeURL:=Format('%s%s', [base, query]);
  Browser.Navigate(StringToOleStr(WholeURL));
end;

that would navigate to a page passing the user and password params
in the isapi dll you check for those params
or whatever the server handler is
the syntax is the same for all (I think)
if you need info about isapi dlls then you can check out my example :
