The FileWndCls Handle and Control Manager

Keywords:      FileWndCls


I'm trying to use control manager to control a web page on Netscape and Internet Explorer. It works with Netscape, but fails with an input field of type "FILE" on Explorer

Note: type "FILE" for Internet Explorer 3.02 only works after patch RFC1867.EXE applied (from the Microsoft site).

Anyway, after examining the elements on the form, the "FILE" field type is of class FileWndCls - I'm using cSetEditText successfully under Netscape, but once again, not under IE. Any suggestions? Thanks.


The FileWndCls is a non-standard Control type that poor Control Manager does not know anything about. You may just have to send keystrokes to it.
