VBScript to delay until full page load

leokuz asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-25
I am wondering if there is a way to modify this auto login code so that it would run immediately after the entire html page has been loaded.

I don't like this code as it is now because if page loads to fast, then I end up waiting 4.5 seconds looking at the login prompt, but if I specify less time, then when page loads too slow, the code runs long before page fully loaded and we get to nowhere. By default the cursor on subject page sits in username's field. I have no control over the subject html page. Please help if you can.

Here is the code:

Option Explicit
Dim objShell
Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
objShell.Run "http://www.somewebsite.com"
Wscript.Sleep 4500
objShell.SendKeys "username"
objShell.SendKeys "{TAB}"
Wscript.Sleep 100
objShell.SendKeys "password"
objShell.SendKeys "{ENTER}"
