6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I'm attempting to select text and copy from IE between to tags. To be more specific, the<b> </b> tags. The IE code looks like

this.....
<p>Subdomain <b>christmas.orp.site11.com</b> has been created.
<I'm currently using the _IELinkClickByText function.But is there a _IEGetText function?

_IELinkClickByText ($oIE, "Go to CPanel",0)
_IELoadWait($oIE)
_IEImgClick($oIE,'/images/6_1.gif');Subdomains
_IELoadWait($oIE)
$oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName ($oIE, "form1",1)
_IELoadWait($oIE)
$oQuery = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($oForm, "subdomain")
_IEFormElementSetValue ($oQuery, $FirstLine)
_IELoadWait($oIE)
_IEFormSubmit ($oForm) ;UnREM me to Submit
_IELoadWait($oIE)
Send("{CTRLDOWN}t{CTRLUP}")

;Is there a _IEGetText function that i can use to go into the IE to get whats between those <b>christmas.orp.site11.com</b> tags, select it, and save as a variable and send it when ever to where ever I want?

#include <String.au3>
#include <array.au3>
#include <IE.au3>

local $Array
local $oIE = _IEAttach("[YourWindowTitleWhereYouGetThisTextFrom]")
local $sHTML = _IEBodyReadHTML($oIE)
$array = _StringBetween($sHTML, "<p>Subdomain <b>", "</b>")
msgbox(64,"yay", $array[0]) ;remember $array[0] causes an error if the stringbetween is not found.

This is how i do it.

Thanks notsure,

Your a gentleman and a scholar. I'm placing the function that you given me within a GUI. When I do so, I totally forgot that I've already had a _StringBetween function in operation(its already defined) I've been looking around the forum and ran across something like like.....

$aArray1 = _StringBetween($sSource, '<a href="', '">description')
$aArray2 = _StringBetween($sSource, '.com">', '</a>')

Is this a good way to handle 2 StringBetween's? Or do you have a better way? By the way, could I PM or email you to in order to access your wealth of knowlegde?

There are alot of ways to do it, also stringinstr in combination with stringmid can get you this far. Sure PM me.

When i use stringbetween i almost immediately change my array back to the string it was supposed to be (nonarray), Like this;

#include <String.au3>
#include <array.au3>
#include <IE.au3>

local $Array
local $oIE = _IEAttach("[YourWindowTitleWhereYouGetThisTextFrom]")
local $sHTML = _IEBodyReadHTML($oIE)
$array = _StringBetween($sHTML, "<p>Subdomain <b>", "</b>")
$array = $array[0]

I experienced less errors occur this way. The _Stringbetween function likes to give you errors which make your whole script crash.

I want to send you a pdf of the IE window. I tried attaching it but it was to large. How can I send it to ya? You mentioned I should placed the title here .....

_IEAttach("[YourWindowTitleWhereYouGetThisTextFrom]")

All the titles are the same take look....http://members.000webhost.com/login.php. Should it look like this......

_IEAttach("[000webhost.com Members Area - Windows Internet Explorer]")

or should it look like this.....

_IEAttach("[http://members.000webhost.com/panel/subdomains.php?accountID=3529104&login_hash=HNKEBETM1NAtX2PJ&action=add]")
