Automatic Form Fill in

I am playing a Windows Media File which is protected by their DRM. I want
to be able to automatically fill in the form asking for payment with my
saved parameters. Is there any way to do this? Note, this is not on the
web - this is a desktop app that has an embedded player or using
mciSendString to play the file.

Thanx in advance,
Anil Gupte

I know this is OT, but I've been very happy with my fingerprint reader
filling in stuff like this for me:

That is interesting, but of course, I am looking for code.

I wonder if it is Thanxgiving weekend, or is it not possible to do what I
want?

So you have a Windows form and you have the user fill
stuff in, and you want to save the settings, and then
use them again later? Is that what you're looking for?
Or are you wanting information on how to get the tagging
info out of the audio file?

What version of VB are you using?

Kinda, yes. In fact, I will use standard values that I am saving in a
database. I will read the database based on the users profile and just
fillin the form. I am using Visual Basic.Net 2003

Anil,

This group is done by people from all over the world, so the Thanxgiving
weekend does not matter so much. Although the in the weekends there is
always less activity.

Have a look at this sample, is that what you mean?

http://www.vb-tips.com/dbpages.aspx?...2-03abce36aa60

Otherwise explain it a little bit more.

OK, I see where the confusion is. When I say "Form" I don't mean a form as
in the Visual Studio IDE. I mean a resulting form which the user sees. In
other words, user double-clicks on a file to play on their hard-disk. The
security on the file pops up a form requesting user to fill-in their login
name and password (and perhaps a credit card number). I want to be able to
fill in these details automatically, so the user does not even know a form
came up.

Hope that clarifies it.

If you write everything in the load event of the form, and than in that
me.close a form will not show up.

But the form is not in my control. The form has been created as part of the
DRM of the file. It pops up when the file is asked to be played. All I can
do is fill it in (sort of simulating keystrokes would do the trick).
