  1. Good morning, everyone, I am using WebDriver with ChromeDriver version 105.0.5195.52 I have the script almost completed; this is going to be used as a wait / pause until the file has completed uploading. I was able to find where the value: "C:\\fakepath\\Vladimir Harkonnen.jpg" is stored. I am trying to figure out how to read this value. This is part of an <input type="file"> element. Reading / finding the value would be the trigger to allow the script to continue. I don't know very much but I feel like I am either not using WebDriver correctly or possibly it won't be able to help me with what I am trying to do. Please see the attached screenshot. Thank you for your time, experience, and patience with me, Thomas Bennett
  2. Is it somehow possible to use SVGPathElement DOM interface to convert a SVG file to polygons within AutoIt? load a SVG file with AutoIt convert the SVG vectors to polygons using this interface export the polygons to a file I don't know whether it works also for multi vectorized objects. An example is here: http://phrogz.net/svg/convert_path_to_polygon.xhtml / http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8091983/convert-path-to-polygon / https://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/paths.html#InterfaceSVGPathElement I've absolutely no experiences with this kind of stuff (you know it is not GDI+ ;-)) THANKS.
  3. I am pretty sure the site that I am using was updated and now I am not seeing the same tags/elements that I used to. I tried using a UIAspy to see if I could grab them that way with no luck. What do I need to do to be able to automate this again. Are the elements hidden somewhere? Instead of highlighting established account is highlights all of the web page almost. How can I get to the detail again? I used to grab establish account by the name. Now I have nothing to even try to grab. There are not elements in the event viewer either. This is what happens when I try to inspect the element and click established account. I get the same type of results in chrome
  4. The DOM allows to do anything with elements and their contents, but first we need to reach the corresponding DOM object, get it into a variable, and then we are able to modify it. * Well, this little tool (although it is not very nice aesthetically) allows you to get visually a "selector" usable to reference DOM objects. Once you have the "selector" of an element you can pass it to the javascript querySelector() function that will return a reference to that element. To use this tool you have to: 1) open the web page you want to inspect into IE browser 2) run this script (if it find more instances of IE running, it allows you to chose one) 3) move the mouse over the browser. The "selector" of the element below the pointer is catched automatically while hovering. To copy the selector in the clipboard just right click on the element. As you can see, while hovering, the element pointed by the mouse is highlighted with a thin red dotted frame to allow you to better "take aim" when the selector is copied to the clipboard a little acoustic signal is emitted as a confirm, then you can paste it in your listing where you need it. I hope it can come in handy and save you time when you need to automate a site .... have fun (debugged on Sept. 30 2018) #include <IE.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <GuiListBox.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <Misc.au3> ; for _IsPressed (23 END key) Global $hDLL = DllOpen("user32.dll") ; following global variables are automatically updated by events from the browser ; ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Global $g_iMouseX, $g_iMouseY ; coordinates of the mouse while mooving over the browser Global $bCopySelector = False ; becomes True when you right click on wanted element ; ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Global $oIE = _Get_IE() ; get IE instance to inspect If IsObj($oIE) Then $hIE = _IEPropertyGet($oIE, "hwnd") WinActivate($hIE) _InspectElements() EndIf DllClose($hDLL) Exit Func _InspectElements() ; it uses the global variable $oIE as source ; --- set IE to interact with AutoIt --- Local $oDocument Do ; wait for document Sleep(250) $oDocument = $oIE.document Until IsObj($oDocument) Local $oWindow = $oDocument.ParentWindow ; create a reference to the javascript eval method ; in the body section of the dovument $oWindow.setTimeout("document.body.JSeval = eval; ", 0) ; attach the $JSeval variable to the javascript eval method Local $JSeval Do $JSeval = Execute('$oIE.Document.body.JSeval') Until IsObj($JSeval) ; --------------------------------------------- ; Inject Javascript functions/elements to $oIE ; --------------------------------------------- ; Get the DOM path of an element (a CSS selector) ; ----------------------------------------------- ; This javascript function returns the CSS selector of the passed element. ; You can then use the returned path to get a reference to the pointed ; element by the QuerySelector() javascript function ; function copied from the following link: ; https://stackoverflow.com/questions/5728558/get-the-dom-path-of-the-clicked-a ; see answer by "Aleksandar Totic" (thanks to him) Local $sJScript = "" & _ " function getDomPath(el) {" & _ " if (!el) {" & _ " return;" & _ " }" & _ " var stack = [];" & _ " var isShadow = false;" & _ " while (el.parentNode != null) {" & _ " var sibCount = 0;" & _ " var sibIndex = 0;" & _ " for ( var i = 0; i < el.parentNode.childNodes.length; i++ ) {" & _ " var sib = el.parentNode.childNodes[i];" & _ " if ( sib.nodeName == el.nodeName ) {" & _ " if ( sib === el ) {" & _ " sibIndex = sibCount;" & _ " }" & _ " sibCount++;" & _ " }" & _ " }" & _ " var nodeName = el.nodeName.toLowerCase();" & _ " if (isShadow) {" & _ " nodeName += ""::shadow"";" & _ " isShadow = false;" & _ " }" & _ " if ( sibCount > 1 ) {" & _ " stack.unshift(nodeName + ':nth-of-type(' + (sibIndex + 1) + ')');" & _ " } else {" & _ " stack.unshift(nodeName);" & _ " }" & _ " el = el.parentNode;" & _ " if (el.nodeType === 11) {" & _ " isShadow = true;" & _ " el = el.host;" & _ " }" & _ " }" & _ " stack.splice(0,1);" & _ " return stack.join(' > ');" & _ " }" ; more infos here: https://www.kirupa.com/html5/finding_elements_dom_using_querySelector.htm ; Inject the above javascript function contained in the $sJScript variable into the document _JS_Inject($oIE, $sJScript) Local $_getDomPath ; a reference to call above function from AutoIt Do Sleep(250) $_getDomPath = $jsEval("getDomPath") Until IsObj($_getDomPath) ; ; ------------------- ; hook some IE events ; ------------------- Local $oEventObjects[2], $oEventsSource $oEventsSource = $oIE.document.documentElement ; element we want catch events from ; https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/internet-explorer/ie-developer/platform-apis/aa769636(v=vs.85) $oEventObjects[0] = ObjEvent($oEventsSource, "_HTMLElementEvents2_", "HTMLElementEvents2") ; https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/internet-explorer/ie-developer/platform-apis/aa768283(v%3dvs.85) $oEventObjects[1] = ObjEvent($oIE, "_IEEvent_", "DWebBrowserEvents2") ; open a GUI where to show some element's properties ; -------------------------------------------------- Local $hGUIMain = GUICreate("Info", 500, 140, -1, -1, -1, $WS_EX_TOPMOST) Local $hProperties = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 0, 0, 500, 140) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 9, -1, -1, "Courier New") GUISetState() ;Show GUI ; -------------------------------------------------- ; --------- ; Main loop ; --------- Local $iMouseX, $iMouseY, $oElement, $oNewElement, $sSelector Local $oGotElement, $sElementInfos Local $sSaved_StyleOutline, $sSaved_StyleOutline2 ; Loop until the user exits.

I've already prepared a very simple "template" where are missing some important parts without which the script can't work. Missing parts are the references to the elements of the AutoIt web page that we have to manage by our script. well, here is where the tool I have just posted here above comes to our help. follow this steps: 1) in IE open the AutoIt site at the forum page (https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/) 2) run the above tool (select the IE instance and/or bring it to front if needed) 3) when the script is "ready", move the mouse over the "Existing user? Sign In" string and right click the mouse button. Doing so the "selector" of that element is copied to the clipboard. Now we can paste it in our AutoLogIt.au3 script as value of the $sSignIn variable. 4) now click on the "Existing user? Sign In" to open the "Sig In" session from where we will copy selectors of each of the 2 input box Username and Password, in the same way as we have already done in step 3, and paste those selectors to the $sInputUserId and $sInputPasswd variables respectively. 5) do the same for the "Sign In" Button and paste it's selector to the $sSignInButn variable 6) of course also fill the $sMyUserId and $sMyPasswd variables with your data. That's It. Run the AutoLogIt script and it should Log you on automatically to the forum. AutoLogIt.au3 #include <ie.au3> $sMyUserId = "" ; <-- your userid here $sMyPasswd = "" ; <-- your password here ; set selectors here $sSignIn = "" ; <-- SigIn element selector here $sInputUserId = "" ; <-- UserId input selector here $sInputPasswd = "" ; <-- Password input selector here $sSignInButn = "" ; <-- Sig In button selector here $oIE = _IECreate("https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/") ; here is how to use the QuerySelector javascript function $hDOM_Element = $oIE.document.QuerySelector($sSignIn) ; get the "sign in" link element ; perform a click action on the above element $hDOM_Element.click() ; or _IEAction($hDOM_Element, "click") as well ; fill the username input $hDOM_Element = $oIE.document.QuerySelector($sInputUserId) $hDOM_Element.value = $sMyUserId ; fill the password input $hDOM_Element = $oIE.document.QuerySelector($sInputPasswd) $hDOM_Element.value = $sMyPasswd ; .... or also using the dot notation directly .... $oIE.document.QuerySelector($sSignInButn).click() Sleep(5000) ; this should logout $sMenu = "body > div:nth-of-type(2) > header > div > ul > li:nth-of-type(6) > a:nth-of-type(2)" $oIE.document.QuerySelector($sMenu).click() $sLogOut = "body > ul > li:nth-of-type(9) > a" $oIE.document.QuerySelector($sLogOut).click()
  5. Hi, After scouring the forums for many hours, I'm trying to compile the most up to date / recent information on the options available for integrating with JavaScript / DOM -- as it relates to scraping + automation of web pages. It's my understanding there is IE.au3 script for automation of IE through a COM interface. But I believe this only works with IE and won't work with Edge, correct? Is there a COM interface that works with Edge, or any other options for integrating with Edge (other than IUIAuatomation?) I know there was also a FF.au3 UDF, but Mozilla abandoned the support for their mozrepl in favor of Web Extensions, and my understanding is that the FF.au3 UDF no longer works, is that correct? There was also a Chrome.au3 UDF, but my read on the forums indicate that this also broke many Chrome releases past. Which leaves IUIAutomation which I have been using to automate / scrape Windows apps, but when I am trying it on a website, it is not as useful. For example, if I know the exact DOM id / class, I can get at it and do whatever I need to in JavaScript very simply. With IUIAutomation, the DOM properties are not available, and most tags / elements in DOM have no useful defining characteristics to be able to get at them reliably (if they are targetable at all). Some things might be able to be done with IUIAutomation, but I see it's value in targeting website automation / scraping as fairly limited. At this point, it seems like my best option is to use IE.au3, but that forces users on IE, which is probably a showstopper. Is there another way to bridge into the DOM? I have written Web Extensions for Chrome and Firefox before. They can communicate with external processes via AJAX or messaging. I'm wondering if I can build what I need in a WebExtension and then trigger it from AutoIT Script, and gather up the results somewhere. I know there was the ISimpleDOM.au3 and some Microsoft Accessability scripts, but they seem to only be partially supported in browsers, and I didn't have a lot of luck getting those examples to run correctly.
  6. I apologize for the simplicity of this question - I don't know much about HTML elements and I did a search on the forum first. I just started using the _IETableWriteToArray function in some of my project and I love it because it allows me to easily grab lists and stuff them in an array. Now I am trying to do the same thing with some HTML that does not use tables. However, the HTML IDs for the sections containing the data I want to read repeat themselves throughout. Example (where "foobar" is repeated throughout): <div id="foobar" style="width: 440px; float: left; padding-left: 10px">DATA<br>MORE DATA<br>MAORE DATA<br>MORE DATA</div> I know that I can refer to a given element like this: Local $element = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "foobar") However, I am wondering what is the best way to grab the values of all the same ID elements and get them into an array? Any guidance would be appreciated. JFish
  7. Why this kind of code below, getting the tag name's element of the ID's element: #include <IE.au3> $oIE = _IECreate("http://www.example.com/", 0, 1, 1) Sleep(5000) $element = $oIE.document.getElementById("element_id") $tags = $element.getElementsByTagName("IFRAME") For $tag In $tags $msg = $tag.contentWindow.document.body MsgBox(0, "Message", $msg.innerHTML) Next And also this code, getting the class name's element of the ID's element: #include <IE.au3> $oIE = _IECreate("http://www.example.com/", 0, 1, 1) Sleep(5000) $element = $oIE.document.getElementById("element_id") $classes = $element.getElementsByClassName("class_name") For $class In $classes $msg = $class MsgBox(0, "Message", $msg.innerHTML) Next Returns the error 'Variable must be of type "Object".': Variable must be of type "Object".: MsgBox(0, "Message", $msg.innerHTML) MsgBox(0, "Message", $msg^ ERROR Instead of the inner HTML sources of the tag name's elements and the class name's elements? What is the right way to do those?
