IE, embedded, cant ID button: INNERTEXT not working?

Recommended Posts


I cant seem to get to a button (Reset, Report) on a webpage .

object.InnerText returns '0'. What to use if not INNERTEXT

Working within IE, as an embedded object.

These are the buttons:

<input type="submit" name="TriageReport1:wfSearch" value="Report" id="TriageReport1_wfSearch" />

<input type="submit" name="TriageReport1:wfResetReport" value="Reset" id="TriageReport1_wfResetReport" />

----- I can get the embedded IE object

WinActivate ("iMedic Explore")

$hWnd = WinGetHandle("[CLASS:WindowsForms10.window.8.app.0.202c666]")

$oIE = _IEAttach ($hWnd, "embedded")

----- I can get the links on the page OK

$oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection ($oIE)

For $oLink In $oLinks

ConsoleWrite("link:" & $oLink.innerText & "Error : " & @error & " - Extended: " & @extended & @CRLF)


----- I CAN get the buttons on the page, but no ID: INNERTEXT returns 0

$oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "input", -1)

For $oInput In $oInputs

ConsoleWrite("submit 2: " & $oInput.InnerText & " Error : " & @error & " - Extended: " & @extended & @CRLF)

Figured it out:

$oSubmit = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "TriageReport1:wfSearch")

_IEAction ($oSubmit, "click")

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
