Help with ebay program

3 posts in this topic

I wonder if anyone can help.

Ive written the following script which works pretty good:

#include <IE.au3>

$OPENIE =_IECreate ("WWW.EBAY.CO.UK")#opens ie

WinWait ("eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace - Windows Internet Explorer")#waits

$SEARCH = _IEGetObjByName($OPENIE,"_nkw") #finds field _nkw (search box)

_IEFormElementSetValue ($SEARCH,"ROYAL DOULTON") #inputs search criteria

SEND ("{enter}")

_IELoadWait ($OPENIE)

#finds tab See all items and clicks:

$sMyString = "See all items"

$oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($OPENIE)

For $oLink in $oLinks

$sLinkText = _IEPropertyGet($oLink, "innerText")

If StringInStr($sLinkText, $sMyString) Then

_IEAction($oLink, "click")

ExitLoop

EndIf

Next

Now, I would really like to search for all the auctions which have bids greater than 2 (>2), then click the relevant link/links, once opened save this

this to my bookmarks.

Then would like another program to get the bids details,auction price details and write to a file, excel ideally.

its not too much to ask is it?

Hi,

First, you really shouldn't be using # for comments. This is likely to bite you someday and is not the intended use of #. Use semicolumn instead.

Now even if I do a lot of things wih eBay using AutoIt, I just can't help you there. I'm using something completely different to access eBay interface.

If you need more interaction with eBay, consider using their API.


This wonderful site allows debugging and testing regular expressions (many flavors available). An absolute must have in your bookmarks.
Another excellent RegExp tutorial. Don't forget downloading your copy of up-to-date pcretest.exe and pcregrep.exe here
RegExp tutorial: enough to get started
PCRE v8.33 regexp documentation latest available release and currently implemented in AutoIt beta.

SQLitespeed is another feature-rich premier SQLite manager (includes import/export). Well worth a try.
SQLite Expert (freeware Personal Edition or payware Pro version) is a very useful SQLite database manager.
An excellent eBook covering almost every aspect of SQLite3: a must-read for anyone doing serious work.
SQL tutorial (covers "generic" SQL, but most of it applies to SQLite as well)
A work-in-progress SQLite3 tutorial. Don't miss other LxyzTHW pages!
SQLite official website with full documentation (may be newer than the SQLite library that comes standard with AutoIt)

Thanks very much, looking at API i think this will put some wind in my sails for the right direction.

sorry about the # (been studing PERL)
