hi everybody! im prbbly not the first one to ask, and im sorry if its a noob question, but is there any easy way to input text to an open website viewed thru jweb without doing further java programing? (dont worry, im not trying to build the first max spambot;)
It is meant for user interaction rather than doing things programatically, but you can always search the forum for the autobot [mxj] class which you can use to send keypresses and move the mouse. For the latter you can also use the "pupdate" message to max.
You could use [sprintf symout] with the right combination string and make a URL with values that would be auto-entered into the form fields, if the page is set up for it, like a PHP script with a GET:
Something I’m interested in trying too, does anyone know if jweb would support that the same way a browser would?
The whole thing is very buggy on computers (PCs) with IE6 though, because it uses those IE-activeX components to do the website rendering and processing. With IE7 or IE8 installed or on Mac it works much better.
also, instead of [jweb], if you want a regular browser to pop up, use a message to max:
; max launchbrowser http://……….
wow, that really opens up a lot of possibilities. Fantastic!
I am searching for a way to pass variables to jweb without reloading the page.
I’m really looking forward to this beacause I’m working with google maps routes and I can’t reload the page without loosing previous routes each time.
I tried several ways but didn’t solve it yet.
Anybody knows how?
