_IE UDF for AJAX tables

Recommended Posts


Hi guys,

I am an AutoIt noob - but have been able to use most of the _IE UDFs with few problems.

Please correct me if I am not in the right place or not sending the required info.

I am trying to figure a way (Other than MouseClick) to simulate a click on a line in an Ajax table.

I can limit the table to a single line... and only need to "click" anywhere on the first line.

The table is in an IEFrame .

HTML 'onclick=' code looks like this : (#=======... is my separator)



<!-- Following Div grid_popup needed for AjaxGrid -->

<div class="grid_popup" id="grid_popup" style="visibility: hidden; display: none;">

<div class="popup_body">



<td onmouseover='className="navon"' onmouseout='className="navoff"' onclick='alert("Do Action 1 \n row: " + o.ClickedRow + "\n ID: " + o.ClickedTD.id );'>

Option 1</td>



<td onmouseover='className="navon"' onmouseout='className="navoff"' onclick='alert("Do Action 2 \n row: " + o.ClickedRow + "\n ID: " + o.ClickedTD.id);'>

Option 2</td>



<td onmouseover='className="navon"' onmouseout='className="navoff"' onclick='alert("Do Action 3 \n row: " + o.ClickedRow + "\n ID: " + o.ClickedTD.id);'>

Option 3</td>





I know that the row will always be one, if that helps.

I have looked at the generated http line and might be able to simulate navigation matching a 'click'.

That is, I could simulate the navigation but a critical piece of information required to do that

'SetWorkOrderId' is hidden in a POST response that looks like this:

{"rows":[{"row":"1","column1":"\u003cspan\u003e\u003ctable border=\"0\" cellpadding=\"0\" cellspacing=\"0\"\u003e\u003ctr\u003e\u003ctd onclick=\u0027SetWorkOrderId(15189112400)\u0027 style=\"color: red\"\u003e11/26/2009\u003c/td\ ....

and I have been unsuccessful at figuring a way to get the POST Response or that piece of information using AutoIT as well.

Any help would be appreciated.

Since you have the id of the DIV container and know that the table structure is stable, you can use _IETagnameGetCollection to drill in. E.g.

$oDiv = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "grid_popup")
$oTable = _IETagnameGetCollection($oDiv, "table", 0) ; get first table
$oTR = _IETagnameGetCollection($oTable, "tr", 0) ; get first TR
$oTD = _IETagnameGetCollection($oTR, "td", 0) ; get first TD
_IEAction($oTD, "click")

Thanks Dale,

I didn't think that I had enough info to make that work.

And while the first element did not work, the fourth (chosen randomly) did.

Go Figure.

Thanks, again
