Dear Experts,

After  I login my bank account  for doing  stock buy sell order ,and if I don't input anything in the
working web page within 900 seconds, my account will be terminated by bank and I need to re-login my account
in order to finish my other order. I feel that 900 seconds will be too trouble or too short  for me  if I am doing a lot
 trading in one day
I would like to change timer setting of 900 seconds to 3600 seconds(one hour) but I don't know how! How
to pass URL variable of timer setting into html page code.

After viewing source code of the bank login page, login.htm , I found there is some html code for Timer of 900 seconds
like this as follows
<body onload="startSessionTimer('900', true); validateCookies(); setCursor();" style="background: #FFFFFF;">  
in  login.htm. how can I pass URL variable into the login.html page ?  Please advise.

you can web the following bank link page and view the source code of login.htm   at https://ibank.standardchartered.com.hk/nfs/login.htm?lang=en_US,
and you will understand  what I am asking . it seems it is possible to change startSessionTimer('900', true);
to startSessionTimer('3600', true) by change URL variable some thing like
https://ibank.standardchartered.com.hk/nfs/startSessionTimer.jsp?%7C36000, but it fail and it is hard by
try by error

Please advise

Duncan

I wouldn't worry about changing this ... 'cause I don't want to get into trouble.

Just write a small script that will click somewhere on that webpage every 14 minutes.

If they have proper session security, it is not possible. If you can alter your variables that easily, you should find another bank because your account is not safe.

The timer is typically controlled by IIS or some other function of a component.  Therefore even if you pass the new value, IIS won't recognize it.

sshah254 is right, you need some type of program script, ruby watir has one, that will attach to your open session, then click a button.  What you need though is a timer job on your computer to launch the script.

I done VBA code for auto refresh for 14 mins by  sub of loggingfresh() as follows but it is not allowed me to
do other code running like buy sell subroutine at the same time  since the loggingrefresh() will occupy the whole code running complie


Sub Loggingrefresh()
With myIE
If Range("B1") = "Logging" Then

Debug.Print myIE.LocationURL
.navigate .LocationURL

Call Application.OnTime(DateAdd("s", 10, Now()), "'Loggingrefresh'")
End If
End With

End Sub
