How to access a java_script variable?

Recommended Posts


A page I'm automating has a bunch of js variables that I would like to access using AutoIT. Can this be done and if so how?

Something like this:

$vVal = $oIE.document.parentwindow.eval("java script:VariableSpec")

In case others are asking the same question, here is what the page HTML looks like:

<script type="text/javascript">


var id='ctl11_id_id';

var name='ctl11_name_name';

var location='ctl11_location_location';

var order_dateTime='ctl11_order_dateTime_order_dateTime';



And here is the AutoIT code to grab the variable:

$oTboxID = _IEGetObjById ($oIE,$oIE.document.parentwindow.eval("id"))

Thanks again Dsalty.
