View Full Version : Simple Login Script Issue

Feb 3, 2009, 01:54 PM
Hey Guys,

I wrote a simple script that should open safari, take me to a website, and keystroke my name a password. It is case sensitive, so I wrote the following script. But I keep getting this error message:

syntax error:

Expected end of line but found identifier.

Any Ideas why?

For Reference:
Login Name: login\MYname
Password: 1234fake

set theURL to "http://www.mywebsite.com"

tell application "Safari" to make new document with properties {URL:theURL}
delay 5
tell application "System Events"
keystroke "login\"
keystroke "my" using shift down
keystroke "name"
keystroke tab
keystroke "1234fake"
keystroke return
end tell

Maybe it needs to be "login\\"?

Ironically Microsoft explains it here (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/115815).

That did it. Thanks a bunch.
