    I have a web page that creates a QR code at runtime, and it creates a random number seed after loading but have the user wiggle the mouse around for a few seconds. Can VBA send random mouse clicks? And can I get it to harvest an image stream from a web page? Thanks.

    This video is a real help but I cannot get a certain window to get my work done.
    what I want is to be able to input data in a pop up tab. this tab has a few text box , few click buttons and a few radio buttons. it's kind of data entry. I want few data to be automatically filled and then me doing the radio button thing and then repeat the same process. what I am not being able to do is getting the right popup window where I need the data to be filled. how will I know the name of wd of the window?
    can you please consider making a video for this issue?
    Thanking you

    There is a text box on my webpage which on clicking will pop up a calendar the properties of that text box is

    I tried clicking that button using IE.document.getelementbyid("datepicker") and IE.document.getelementsbyclassname("hasDatepicker") and also IE.document.getelementsbyname("date") but i failed everytime and i am not able to click text box because of which the calendar on my webpage is not appearing.
    I tried using Selenium Java code and it is working fine with it but i want to code with VBA scripting.
    Please help me with this issue as while running i am not getting any errors also.
    Thank You

    Just a thought... how about you debug on your own time and record once you've done everything right?

  • Nick Brooks
    Nick Brooks 3 years ago

    Just a question. What if the titles have the same title. Is there anything else you can use. Also, does ANYBODY know how to read the IE object local window. If there is an online resource or if you can just explain that to me. That would help a lot!

    Hi and thanks for this tutorial as it is exactly what I'm trying to do, but I can't get this code to function for me.
    The problem occurs right off the bat. When you hovered over "wd" in debug mode, your code immediately identified the open Internet explorer at 5:07.
    Even if I type mine the exact same way wd always says = Empty, even though I have Internet Explorer up. What could be the cause of this? I have Internet Controls and Object Library checked. I am using Excel 2010 on Windows 8.

    Amazing! I really didn't expect the second part of this to come out for a while. I see that you experienced much of the same frustration that I did, but I really like the way you talk through your thoughts while doing this. That adds an extra element of usefulness for someone who is struggling with getting a piece of code to work. I am very grateful for you taking your own time to do this. ..... On the downside, I am just seeing this video, and just this morning, I was termed from my job :(. However, I do believe that when one door closes, another one opens, and this information will be extremely helpful going forward in all of my future endeavors. Thanks again for taking your personal time to help people out. For anyone who is a visual learner like me, your videos are excellent, and it just amazes me how much can actually done use ExcelVBA. God Bless.

      You too man! Yes, you'll get a much better job in the IT/Tech world with this stuff under your belt. You have the power to save other people and yourself hundreds of thousands of hours with the coding you experiment with. Zig Ziglar says "you can have anything you want in life if you can help enough other people get what they want." I've never heard a better description of a programmer yet! Dan
