Using sendkeys etc. does not give a sure results but You need to use own webbrowser control in this if it will due:
It's very similar in VB 6 this one is asked in .NET but it's on VB 6 area

In my frist comment there is a sbmit button click on that browser object.

If that is any way possible with vb6 please reply.
