Thanks for the recommendation M.Taylor :)
I'll expand a bit on Control IDs for you. The Control ID (CTRLID in the SBGINA.INI) is an internal numeric identifier that the Operating System gives to each control in a window. The easiest way to get this ID for your login windows is to enable tracing (which I go over in my other post linked to above) and then to get them from the log file. Remember that the label before a text box has an ID as well, so usually the text box is the ID after it. So when you see:
Text : "&User name:"
Class : "Static"
ID : 1506
Text : ""
Class : "Edit"
ID : 1502
It means that the 1506 ID is for the label "User Name" (which is pretty useless to you), and the control after it with ID 1502 is the actual text box.
If you're interested, you can see controls for other applications you run. There are plenty of tools to do this, I use the "AutoIt Window Info" tool that comes with AutoIt3. You can download it for free here:
You can't really use that on a login window since you wouldn't be able to run the tool before you login, but you can kind of see how a window is setup. This really isn't the purpose of AutoIt, just a need side effect.
Thank you both for the information and tips.
I will try it out an see what results I get and will get back to you on the results.
