FF UDF Problems

Recommended Posts


I've just started using the FF UDF, trying to duplicate tasks that have been using the IE UDF. I'm using FireFox 3.5.7 and MozRepl However, after trying some of the examples, such as:

#include <Array.au3>
#include <FF.au3>

If _FFConnect() Then
    _FFTabAdd( "http://ff-au3-example.thorsten-willert.de/")

    ; counting the number of results from the Xpath query
    MsgBox(64, "Number of password fields:", _FFXPath( "//input[@type='password']", "", 10))

    ; the textContent from the query result
    MsgBox(64, "Fieldset-Legend:", _FFXPath( "//form[1]/fieldset/legend"))

    ; the textContent from option 2
    MsgBox(64, "Text from 0ption 5:", _FFXPath( "//option[2]"))

    ; Method and action of the first form
    $vTmp = "Method: " & _FFXPath( "//form[1]/@method") & @crlf
    $vTmp &= "Action: " & _FFXPath( "//form[1]/@action")
    MsgBox(64, "Form 2", $vTmp)

    ; array with the textContent of all options
    $aArray = _FFXPath("//option","value",7)

    ; working with the object returned from the query
    _FFXPath("//form[1]//input[@type='checkbox' and position()=2]","",9)
    MsgBox(64,"", _FFObj("xpath.type") & @crlf & _FFObj("xpath.value"))


I'm not getting any return values. Is there something I'm missing?

Edit: Upgraded to Firefox 3.6 and seeing some improvement.

I'm having problems now with _FFTableWriteToArray. Everytime I try to run the following example:

#include <FF.au3>
#include <Array.au3>


If _FFIsConnected() Then

    $aTable = _FFTableWriteToArray(0)

I get:

I'm thinking the problems I've had with _FFTableWriteToArray have been related to nested tables. Has anyone been able to fix this yet?
