Sendkeys or another method

P: n/a
When I click a hyperlink on my form I want to open a web page and send 3
tabs to get to the User ID field on the web page.
Is this possible? Is there another way to do this?

Did you try it or did you want us to test it for you?

At Dev's site at http://www.mvps.org thee are some APIs that deal with IE.
Check them out. They may provide suffiecient advice to allow you to expand
the code.

I have tried this and cannot seem to make it work.
I will look at the site and see what that yields.

Good luck. One thing, when you do the 3 tabs, does the form that calls the link
move 3 fields? When the web page is opened, I would think that the web page
needs to be activated and have the focus before the sendkeys works.

You might also want to goto advanced search, group *access*, at
hppt://groups.google.com and do some searching there.

No The sendkeys process before the webpage opens.
I have been unable to solve that problem.

I am not sorry that I am a sduper programmer.

I have never experienced an issue like this before. IMO, trying to gain
access to web pages which were designed to be accessed by an individual
person, through a program instead, is unethical, and it punishes us all by
adding to the never ending attempt by the lazy, the dishonest, and the
indifferent, to ruin the internet and the enjoyment and common advancement
of us all, for their own selfish needs.

I pay to access the information on the web page I am accessing.
They do not care if I do this or not. If I move their product they are
quite happy with me.

How in God's name am I being lazy and dishonest? The internet is public.
I am attempting to automate a routine task that I am perfectly able to do
manually.
I am not deceiving, defrauding or otherwise being damaging to anyone.

I am simply being attempting to be practical by automating a mundane task.

John,

Lyle has made up his mind, apparently, that you are doing something
nefarious. I doubt you are going to argue him out of that mindset.

Then again, he might ask, as many have, including the populace in Ayn Rand's
novel, "Who is John Galt?" That pseudonym may have played a part in his
perception of you.

The psuedonym is so when I get mail after posting here I know whence it
came.
Nothing more.
Apparently Larry does think I am "nefarious"

This John Galt is Gene Johnston from Allentown PA.
I really so not know why any of these questions would raise the mindset
portrayed by Lyle.
I am just a novice programmer seeking help from those with experience.
I can putter thru. But why reinvent the wheel?

I really thought that was why this group is here.

Thanks

No, I don't think so. But Lyle has made some statements in the past that
would make me think he is not a fan of Rand's philosophy, which is why I
mentioned the pseudonym.

Well if I am a idiot headcase I am a talented one.
I automated the entire process (without your help-or anyone else's for that
matter) and did it without sendkeys.

I do have to say that as a human being you lack some very basic skills;
courtesy, integrity, helpfulness etc (and your vocabulary is vulgar )
Do you know what vulgar means Lyle? Your evolutionary clock stopped at
somewhere between Baboon and Chimpanzee.

I am grateful that all of the others who have ever responded to me were far
more human than you.

Do us all a favor and grow up.

Given Ayn Rand's propensity to have affairs with little boys, I should think
Fenton is a fan.

You're caught in the middle here of a skirmish.

Unfortunately the person who is using the nom de plum 'starwars', among many others,
is posting very obnoxious and objectionable stuff.

If you see something strange review the headers and look for anonymizing services or
teranews.com. So far those are the signs of the "anonymous" person.

be cleaned up after. I can only hope the baby grows up.

Starwars - You are a coward.
Why don't you identify yourself.
Are you a emotionally weak individual with little or nothing else to do but
to cause trouble?

My "newbie" questions not withstanding, I have 22 years of experience in IT
and have forgotten more about this business than you will ever know.
Especially if you maintain your "baby" attitude".

I'll stick my nose in wherever I chose, Thank you.
