I'd like to use the Data Socket Write VI to be able to give my
loginname and my password from LabVIEW 6i. I really don't know how
this VI works, and/or if this is possible.
Thanks for your help.
Hello,
Thank you for your inquiry regarding website login. I understand that you would like to logon to Hotmail using LabVIEW 6.i. DataSocket however, is used to send and receive data between computers running LabVIEW. One possible solution is to use ActiveX events to run an internet browser window on the front panel of your VI. I assume however, that you would like LabVIEW to automate this task. Unfortunately Hotmail is a secure site using Microsoft Passport .NET. .NET is supported by LabVIEW 7.0 but the .NET control of Passport would have to be provided by Microsoft. The following link is a great resource to learn more about the .NET single-login system.

I hope this resource helps. Let me know if you wo
uld like more help using a browser window on your front panel using ActiveX.
