Description

Sets the value of the specified input element
To learn about forms and fields on a website, you can use the Form Utility application included with our plugin.

Some websites use a lot of JavaScript, so you may need to send change event to control via WebView.RunJavaScript so the javascript is notified about the changes.

Examples

Fill field q on form f on a webpage:

MBS( "WebView.SetFormInputValue"; $WebViewerRef; "f"; "q"; "Hello" )

Load a website with login if needed:

# Load website
Set Web Viewer [ Object Name: "web" ; URL: "https://somedomain/search" ]
# Wait for it
Loop
    Pause/Resume Script [ Duration (seconds): ,1 ]
    Exit Loop If [ MBS("WebView.IsLoading"; "web") ≠ 1 ]
End Loop
#
# Set login name
Set Variable [ $r ; Value: MBS( "WebView.SetFormInputValue"; "web"; "login_form"; "__ac_name"; "xxx") ]
If [ MBS("iserror") ]
    # No form, so we are already logged in?
    If [ Position ( $r ; "failed to find form" ; 1 ; 1 ) = 0 ]
        Show Custom Dialog [ "Fehler" ; $r ]
    End If
    Exit Script [ Text Result: ]
End If
# Set password
Set Variable [ $r ; Value: MBS( "WebView.SetFormInputValue"; "web"; "login_form"; "__ac_password"; "yyy") ]
If [ MBS("iserror") ]
    Show Custom Dialog [ "Fehler" ; $r ]
End If

    // Show Custom Dialog [ "Fehler" ; $r ]

# Wait for page loading after login
Loop
    Pause/Resume Script [ Duration (seconds): ,1 ]
