Hi, I'm using delphi and I would like to open a web page, fill a field and press submit automatically without the user intervention.

For example, I could call google, fille the search field and press search button and then I would read the results with my program, all this without the user seeing his web application open.    I'm usually using GetInetFile to perform this kind of thing but I don't know how to interact with the web form.

Most popular way is to use TWebBrowser which is IE behind. Here, on EE there are few questions/answers already:

...addition - you must wait until page is loaded - then you need to fill form. Waiting is described here:
