Internet Explorer Server

P: n/a
Hi,
Does anyone know how get text from/ set text to 'child windows' of an
Internet Explorer Server class window?
Using WM_SETTEXT would be great, but i don't know how to get the handle
of a child window in an Internet Explorer Server?

All comments gratefully received,
James Randle.

I should add that the internet explorer server is located in another
process (it is used to provide a 'nice GUI'). I'm thinking 'can i do
this without DLL injection'). I hope so!

Thanks again,
James Randle.

James,

Why not connect to IE through automation? Here is a knowledge base
article with the code you will need to connect to IE:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/176792/EN-US/

Granted, it is in VB6, but you can easily use COM interop to recreate
this.

Once you have that, you can get the document, and then set the
appropriate values for the textboxes through the document object model (you
will have to set a reference to MSHTML as well).

Hope this helps.
