Need help with a form control in IE


Recommended Posts


I'm trying to click a button wich controls a form.

I have an embedded IE

I think the html source for my button is

<INPUT class=button2 value=Dificil type=submit name=dif3>

I use this to get informations about my button,

$oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection ($oIE, "input")
$x = 0

For $oInput In $oInputs
    MsgBox(0, "Form Input Type", "x = " & $x & "Form: " & $oInput.form.name & " Type: " & $oInput.type & " html: " & $oInput.outerhtml)
    $x += 1

but I don'n know how to activate it;

I have tried with

$oForm = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE, 3)

_IEFormSubmit ($oForm)

but I don't know how to use _IEFormGetCollection here.

If you can give me an example, or advice, I will bw very pleased.

ps: sorry for my englih :D

Are there any errors? Is there any more code? What are you attempting to automate? I assume you probably don't have SciTe- look for the link in my sig.



Oh and welcome to the forums btw.

I want to autologin in this site:

My Site

I try to fill the login form and activate Login button

I started to code a bot, and I can't activate any of that kind of button, like that in Login form

The code from my bot is big, and you can't use it if you don't have an account to that web-game.

I can activate some buttons inside the site using

_IENavigate($oIE, $url, 0)
 $oForm = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE, 3)


I just discovered that using 3 in _IEFormGetCollection($oIE, 3) work,

I tried something like this

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate()

_IENavigate($oIE, "http://s1.bitefight.de/bite/login.php")

$o_form = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, "l")

$o_login = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($o_form, "user")

$o_password = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($o_form, "pass")

_IEFormElementSetValue($o_login, "username")

_IEFormElementSetValue($o_password, "password")



but didn't succeed

I am having troubles here as well.

Problem is that the form has no name?! what do you do in this case?


#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate ("http://www.google.com")

$oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName ($oIE, "f")

$oQuery = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($oForm, "q")

_IEFormElementSetValue ($oQuery, "AutoIt IE.au3")

_IEFormSubmit ($oForm)

_IEFormGetObjByName doesn't work because the form here has no name.

"Error from function _IEFormElementGetObjByName, $_IEStatus_InvalidDataType" nothing i can do :D

any ideas?

@kiu please read the remarks section of _IEFormSubmit in the helpfile

@Consty I don't know where to begin... pile onto someone elses thread with a new question and then bump it? get real - open your own thread, but first spend some time in the helpfile... read the remarks for _IEFormElementGetObjByName and examine all of the console output in SciTe for clues

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?
