I am a new poster here. I really don't have much experience with Java, but I have encountered a problem and it looks like I'm going to need to familiarize myself with it quickly.
Basically my question is how I could access the fields in a Java applet, more specifically to automatically input values? Could it be done through DOM or some other way?
To provide a little more background on my problem, I am currently working on a program using VB.NET which will have an embedded browser that will direct the user to a Federal regulatory agency. Currently our HQ employees are accessing this site and manually typing a large number of values to submit to the agency. My hope is to automate this process with my program. The user will be able to select excel files through the winform and it will automatically pull the data from the files and populate the fields in the online form. .NET makes it very easy to access fields and assign values in general HTML so it looked like this project would be very simple. But unfortunately I discovered that the specific forms to submit our data are embedded within a Java applet, something I know very little about. So this complicates things a bit, but I'm hoping that someone may have some experience with this and could provide some sort of way to access/manipulate fields in a Java applet.
If any more information is needed I'd be happy to provide it!
