Using TWebbrowser to enter text and click button

Using TWebbrowser to enter text and click button in Delphi VCL topic (part of our Pascal and Delphi Coding group).

Quick Search: TWebbrowser   Using TWebbrowser   Using TWebbrowser enter   text click  
Melbourne, -- AU

Using TWebbrowser to access a web form with a few fields on it, and a couple of buttons.

I want to enter some text into one of these form Fields, then click one of the buttons ('Search'), with delphi code accessing the page via TWebbrowser.

I can access the complete HTML page source (is in a frame but i do a fool workaround to trick it into discarding the outer frame anyway).  I know what the button and the field names are.

Having Zero luck with this so far, need a direction to be pointed in if nothing more.  Any Ideas?

You're entering interesting territory!

Delphi, itself, doesn't know much about the HTML that happens to be loaded in a TWebBrowser.

The good news is that TWebBrowser has a property, "Document,"  that you may find helpful.

The Document property gets you an IDispatch interface to the document.  From that point on, you are in Microsoft land.  Here's a link that'll describe the Document in plenty detail:


You'll want to explore the collections, particularly the "forms" collection.

Events, like onfucusout, may be helpful, too.

Good luck!
