Hello, I'm trying to find a way to automatically click on a button on a web page.
As the title says, it's the 'login' button.

Is there a way to activate web buttons with vbscript?

Thanks!

Look at HTML DOM for this....if the button has an ID you would be able to do something like

window.document.getElementByID("LoginButtonID").Click()

It really depends on the page.  What have you tried so far?  If nothing, look for InternetExplorer.Application

I'm a bit of a noob and haven't tried anything so far.
I can see from the source code that the form does have an id

Here's a bit of the page code.

<body marginheight="0" marginwidth="0">
        <form name="Login" method="post" action="Login.aspx?cID=8666&amp;lng=en-US" id="Login">
<input type="hidden" name="__PageDirty" value="False" />
<input type="hidden" name="__PageDirtyMsg" value="Changes have been made but not saved.\nYour changes will be lost if you continue.\n\nDo you wish to continue?" />
<input type="hidden" name="__EVENTTARGET" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="__EVENTARGUMENT" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="__VIEWSTATE" value="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" />
