There is website which our application needs to interface with it. Is there a toolkit or some other program available which allows you to do this and would work with LV or TS ? i don't have a lot of time and resources to get this done so what would be the simplest/quickest way to achieve this ?
If you're using Windows, you may find it easiest to embed Internet Explorer as an ActiveX component and control that. The methods available are not always straightforward but are well documented on MSDN.
Okay so below are some of the steps which i am looking to execute:
- Open a webpage www.abc.com [it is a gui to access a server]
- Enter a username/password to login to the website
- After logging in, click okay on the next page to a prompt to continue
- Select a file?! Perhaps read some data (status) from the webpage?!
i will be using the website more in the next few days and will have a better idea on what needs to be implemented. so ideally i would like to have a VI which can perform these steps and return the output in PASS/FAIL so the existing application we already have can proceed accordingly.
