    login into what? You realize there are abotu 4 billion applications that require some sort of login so you are going to have to be slightly less vague.

    Use the auto_login function in the STL.

    A little while ago I made three auto-login programs each for a different IM program. The three IM programs being MSN, AIM and Yahoo. What I did was use the Win32 API to find the windows of the IM then find the child windows of those(these being the username and password edit boxes) filled those in and sent a BN_CLICK message to the Sign In buttons. With MSN they didn't use a button, so I had to improvise. Is this what you are talking about making auto-login programs for applications or for webpages?

    Umm. Don't the MSN, Yahoo, and AIM clients already do that for you?

    Yeah but you still need to fill in the password box, and my programs open and then fill in all the login fields. Plus it was a learning experience it's not like I'm going to sell them.

    AIM stores your password for you, as do the other clients I've used. AIM even has a check box that says "login automatically". But oh well, it proabbly was quite a godo Win32API learning experience, no doubt in that.
