I'm interested in creating a program that opens a couple of IE pages and then conducts searches based on what is copied to the clip board
I.E abraham lincoln is copied to clipboard and a webpage that i'm using to search has two fields firstname and surname among other search options
what i want to do is for it to open webpage go to the first name and surname boxes and fill out what is copied form the clipboard
as default if there is only one name I.E Lincoln it would skip first name box and just fill out the surname part
so what i'm asking for is a way to count text boxes on a webpage so i could say if there is two words I.E abraham lincoln it would go to text box 3 and 4 on the page and if only lincoln go to text box 4 only.
i know this is a bit of a long and confusing questions but just being pointed in the right direction would be a huge help thanks
i was originally planning to do this in c++ but if you guys know a better language that runs nativily on windows and would be easier to program suggestions would be great
