VBS Script getElementbyID Error (AutoLogin Script)

I am writing .vbs script file which works for different sites, but I am writing auto login script for my university web page for internet page login.

So I have working til where it fills out username and password but I can't get it to click login.

Here is link to university login. I am not sure that you can access it from out of network.

(Note editors plz dont make it live link)


Here is my script code.

WScript.Quit Main

Function Main
    Set IE = WScript.CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application", "IE_")
    IE.Visible = True
    IE.Navigate "https://wlc-airrowdy1.utsa.edu/fs/customwebauth/studentlogin.html"

    Wait IE
    WScript.Echo "This is WSH version", WScript.Version

    With IE.Document
        .getElementByID("username").value = "myuser"
        .getElementByID("password").value = "mypass"
    End With
End Function

Sub Wait(IE)
        WScript.Sleep 500
    Loop While IE.ReadyState < 4 And IE.Busy 

        WScript.Sleep 500
    Loop While IE.ReadyState < 4 And IE.Busy 
End Sub

Sub IE_OnQuit
    On Error Resume Next
    WScript.StdErr.WriteLine "IE closed before script finished."
End Sub

Here is sourcecode for page if you can't access link above.

I'm not sure a form element has a member method called submitAction. Should it be simply submit?

And I don't see any elements with the IDs you're looking for: "username", "password" or "top"

With IE.Document
    .getElementByID("username").value = "myuser"
    .getElementByID("password").value = "mypass"
End With

I'm guessing you're looking for eg

<td width="31%"><input type="text" maxlength=63 size=25 name=username /></td>

where you would use getElementsByName, which returns an array of elements

dim elements: set elements = document.getElementsByName("username")
elements(0).Value = "username"
