Yeah the value is readonly I've also noted that we can type into the textbox.

To do it anyway, you can set focus to the object then send keystrokes.

I would say that sending keys to webbrowser is a very ugly idea. no offense. since you can do it from indy with one line of code, why bother?
you can use twebbrowser for al lother operations if you really want that  and indy for posting the data.
