    I am trying to set up printing from my iPhone using Readlle's Printer Pro. I am on a university though and all the printing software is from the university and there is a Pharos pop-up where I must input my username and password. I was thinking maybe I could write an AppleScript that would automatically input my username and password when the pharos popup is initiated, so that it could run even when I wasn't in front of my computer. I unfortunately do not have AppleScript knowledge so I was wondering if maybe someone could help me with this?

    Thanks,
    Telp

    I would first ask one of your fellow students if perhaps someone has already written such a script because I and I think the majority of forum members are not attending class at your university. I'll post a link with more information on Graphic User Interface (GUI) Scripting. Notice the info about UI Browser on the right hand side of the page. You definitely going to need it. It has a trial period so make use of it.
    It can be done but it's going to take a little effort on your part.
