Combination of open url(s)+ perform auto-type

  • Nobody/Anonymous

    Following command would be great:
    open url(s) and perform auto-type

    One command for both actions would save several clicks....!!

      The problem here is that you would somehow also have to focus the field which is to receive the auto typed characters.    I suspect this would be difficult.

      exactly! Before the Auto Type starts you have to set a delay, so that you have time to focus the coorect field.

      The delay would be tricky.  It takes a variable amount of time for a site to come up in a browser, if it comes up at all.  The page can exist in a local cache, the server can time out or there can be a DNS problem.  You certainly don't want to spit out your userid and password if the proper page isn't loaded.

      I agree this feature could cause some problems. But, on the other hand it would be a very convenient feature when you have to mount a True Crypt Volume, for example. You can combine a "start TrueCrypt.exe" command with some switches to mount a True Crpyt Volume and at the same time provide the required password.

      Wow, this would in fact be a very mighty feature for some applications to start from the command line combined with the auto-type feature.....

      RoboForm already does exactly what is requested:  Select a URL and it reliably opens the browser, navigates to the correct fields, and fills in the login and password.  Adding this feature would be a crowning touch for KeePass.
