Auto Login via TestStand UserInterfaces

Solved!
Go to solution

Hello everybody,

i´m trying to login a user programmatically during the MainForm_load of the Simple Userinterface.

I tried already
axApplicationMgr.GetEngine.CurrentUser = axApplicationMgr.GetEngine.GetUser(current_user)

but this only changes the user which appear in the login window.

Is it possible to start the login process without showing those login window?

Thanks for advice.

The login prompt is handled by the FrontEndCallBacks sequence.  You can change the behavior by following this article

Thank you for your advice RaviShrigiri, but our TestSystem will only have one Windows Account for all the user, so this solution don´t work for me.

Okay... The problem was caused, because the EXE-Call parameters were processed after the MainForm_Load, so my current_user variable was still empty.

I set the
axApplicationMgr.GetEngine.CurrentUser = axApplicationMgr.GetEngine.GetUser(current_user)
now in the axApplicationMgr_ProcessUserCommandLineArguments(...) function and it works.

Thanks for your help.
