HTA file - Clear password field when run...or even close window

Posted on 2011-03-09

I found the HTA script somewhere on the Exchange that prompts for user and password to map a drive. I modified the HTA to ask for password only to mount a TrueCrypt volume. What I would like is for either the password field to reset when you click the Open Volume button...or better yet, close the window.  I am wondering if you can combine more than one thing to run at the "onClick=" for the button.

Thanks!
<head>
<title>Run Script</title>
<HTA:APPLICATION 
     APPLICATIONNAME="Open Encrypted File"
     BORDER="thin"
     SCROLL="no"
     SINGLEINSTANCE="yes"
     WINDOWSTATE="normal"
>
</head>
 
<script language="VBScript">
 
Sub Window_onLoad
	intWidth = 400
	intHeight = 300
	Me.ResizeTo intWidth, intHeight
    Me.MoveTo ((Screen.Width / 2) - (intWidth / 2)),((Screen.Height / 2) - (intHeight / 2))
End Sub

'Set 
Sub Default_Buttons
	If Window.Event.KeyCode = 13 Then
		btn_runscript.Click
	End If
End Sub
 
Sub RunScript
	If Trim(txt_password.Value) = "" Then
		MsgBox "Please enter a password."
		txt_password.Focus
	Else
		strPassword = txt_password.Value
		
 
Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
objShell.Run "c:\truecrypt.exe /v c:\testvol.100 /letter x: /auto /password " & strPassword

	End If
End Sub
 
</script>
 
<body style="background-color:#B0C4DE; font-family: arial" onkeypress='vbs:Default_Buttons'>
	<table width='90%' height = '100%' align='center' border='0'>
		<tr>
			<td align='center'>
				<h2>Enter Encrypted File Password</h2>
			</td>
		</tr>
		<tr>
			<td>
				Pasword:<br>
				<input type="password" maxlength="30" size="40" id="txt_password" name="txt_password"><br><br>

		</tr>
		<tr>
			<td align='center'>
				<input type="button" value="Open Volume" name="btn_runscript"  onClick="vbs:RunScript">&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp
				<input type="button" value="Exit" name="btn_exit"  onClick="vbs:window.close"><br><br>

...one other thing. What would I need to do so that the password field has focus when the form is opened?

Thanks again!

To give the password field focus:
Sub Window_onLoad
	intWidth = 400
	intHeight = 300
	Me.ResizeTo intWidth, intHeight
	Me.MoveTo ((Screen.Width / 2) - (intWidth / 2)),((Screen.Height / 2) - (intHeight / 2))
        txt_password.Focus
End Sub

Open in new window


And to make it exit afterwards:
Sub RunScript
	If Trim(txt_password.Value) = "" Then
		MsgBox "Please enter a password."
		txt_password.Focus
	Else
		strPassword = txt_password.Value
		
		Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
		objShell.Run "c:\truecrypt.exe /v c:\testvol.100 /letter x: /auto /password " & strPassword
                
		btn_exit.Click
	End If
End Sub

Open in new window

Just to answer your other question, to clear the password box use:

    txt_password.Value = ""

Idle_Mind:

Thanks. The focus works perfect but I get "Error: Object doesn't support this property or method: 'btn_exit.Click'"

Hmm...I just copied and pasted your supplied code into a .txt file and renamed it .hta.  Then I simply added "btn_exit.Click" to that 'Else' block after commenting out the Run() line.  It correctly closed after clicking the button...

I'm running Win 7 Pro x64.

Instead of
            btn_exit.Click

just use
            window.close

Regards,

Rob.

Got it. My bad. I did a copy paste to add another button and didn't change the button name. There were duplicate btn_exit names. Everything works perfectly.

Thanks a bunch!

Thanks for the post Rob...I'm definitely no HTA expert.  I assume that "window.close" would work no matter what since it doesn't rely on a specific button name?

Yes, that's right.  It can be called anywhere.
