I'm new to Powershell and was wanting to get some help with a script. I was trying to create a script to auto logon to a website. Currently my script will open the web page but after that nothing happens. I was hoping some one could review my script and the source of the web page and help with where i'm going wrong. I will post the script and the source page below.


$username = "name"
$password = "password"

$ie = New-Object -comobject InternetExplorer.Application
$ie.visible = $true
$ie.silent = $true
$ie.Navigate( "http://site&quot😉
while($ie.ReadyState -ne 4){Start-Sleep -m 100}
$ie.Document.getElementById("webUsername").value = "$username"
$ie.Document.getElementById("webPassword").value = "$password"



User ID

You're using GetElementByID but the submit button doesn't have an ID. Its type attribute does not constitute an ID attribute. In fact, none of the input elements have an ID – a "name" is also not "id."
