Clicking Element in Form, No names available

Recommended Posts


Hello all,

I've really been banging my head on this. Any help will be appreciated!

Form HTML:

<FORM method=post action=delete_portfolio.php><A href=""><IMG style="FLOAT: left; MARGIN-RIGHT: 10px" class=cancel_delete_btn alt=Cancel src="images/btn_cancel.gif" jQuery1262704277595="6"></A><INPUT id=portfolio_to_delete class=image type=hidden name=portfolio_to_delete><INPUT style="FLOAT: left" id=confirm_delete_btn alt=Delete src="images/btn_delete.gif" type=image jQuery1262704277595="7"></FORM>

I'm trying to click the "confirm_delete_btn" in this Form.

Name is hidden

I'm quite sure I've indexed the correct Form, there are no names on the Forms either, but I did a collection and displayed the Form information to confirm the index (starting with 0 as the index of the first form).

I'm not sure how to index the correct element in the form to get the "confirm_delete_button, but have tried different index numbers and always get the "InvalidDataType" error: IE.au3 V2.4-0 Error from function _IEAction, $_IEStatus_InvalidDataType

I'm using these commands:

$oForm = _IEFormGetCollection ($oIE, 4)

$oDELbtn = _IEFormElementGetCollection ($oForm, 4)

_IEAction ($oDELbtn, "click")

NOTE: When I do a "delete" in this case, there is always only one Portfolio to delete, so was hoping that I only need to click on the delete button. There is also an INPUT, to which I may need to submit a "Portfolio name". Will deal with that after I solve this InvalidDataType error.

Hoping for some suggestions of direction here. Maybe there is a better way??

Maybe this will work?

$oDELbtn = _IEGetObjById($oForm,"confirm_delete_btn")

Good suggestion. I tried this and got a NoMatch error. Tried different index on the Form Collection (in case I was picking the wrong form) and still NoMatch for the ID.

It's interesting that I didn't get a NoMatch with the initial approach.\
