Sendkeys to a Login Screen.....

FYI I'm new to programming........Taking 2 classes in Sept.

Anyways, I'm trying to Login using SendKeys......
I was using Access but found to many restrictions.......

I now have VB.net 6......

     Problem that I'm having is when I click on the button IE opens, goes to the web page and then nothing......
Sometimes the UserID data with show up in the IW web address box, or the web page will open up
with the cursor blinking, waiting for the username and password....

******  What's Missing Here.....?

Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim ie : ie = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
        Dim Wsh : Wsh = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

        ie.visible = True
        ie.navigate2("http://guest.realtylife.com/")
        Wsh.SendKeys("xsocalmls")
        Wsh.SendKeys("st7st7Xas")

       
    End Sub

Since you are using sendkeys there is no security issue to consider.
Why don't you post the username and password directly in the URL ?


        Dim ie : ie = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
        ie.visible = True
        ie.navigate2("http://xsocalmls:st7st7Xas@guest.realtylife.com/")


BTW : You have put a valid username and password on the post, isn't that a problem ?

Another method you could use to kick off IE (which, incidentally, is the .NET preferred way of doing it is this:

System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("iexplore.exe", "http://xsocalmls:st7st7Xas@guest.realtylife.com/")

That will open up iexplorer.exe and navigate to the site listed in 1 line of code.

The line below will open up the default web browser app and navigate to the site listed.

System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("http://xsocalmls:st7st7Xas@guest.realtylife.com/")
