View Full Version : What kind of website is this?

10-29-2009, 11:13 AM

I am trying to automate the tasks I do on a website using VBA. The site needs its users to login using a pair of username and password. I am not sure how I can go about automating my tasks here because,

1. Unlike other sites I have worked before, this site’s address bar keeps showing the same address, even when I navigate through different pages of the site. For example, the address bar of the browser keeps showing
"http://www.abcfinancials.com/v-hom.asp". Therefore I am not able to use the typical ObjIE.navigate method.

2. When I hover the mouse pointer on links on a page, at the bottom of the page it shows something like:

javascript:MenuItemSelected(document.getElementById("2_2"),%20true); or


3. The page has some listboxes. I checked their source using ‘view source’ and the following is their code.

<td valign="middle">
<select STYLE="font-fmaily:Tahoma;font-size:11px" name="searchtype" onchange="javascript:document.forms.frmSearch.optionchanged.value='true'" ID="Select1"> <option value="0" >Contains</option>
<option value="1" >Begins With</option>
<option value="2" selected >Is Exactly</option>

Could you please give some pointers?
