How to Identify different Form Elements

5 posts in this topic

Hi!

I've got a question about the _IEFormElementGetCollection function.

I know how to use the information in the collection object, and how to use the different form elements. But how can I identiy what kind of form element is what? For example Textelement, radioselect, checkbox select, etc..

Use .type:

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IE_Example("form")
$oForm = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE, 0)
$colElements = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForm)
$n = 0
For $oElement In $colElements
    ConsoleWrite($n & ": " & $oElement.type & @LF)
    $n += 1
Next

Thanks!!

I'm fairly new using autoit, and this script is the first time i'm using the .name, .count & .type functions. Where can I read up on this in the help file, what are those functions called?

Thank in advance,

Thomas

They are not functions and not defined by AutoIt, they are properties of the objects. The objects are defined by whatever app created them. In this case, the IE Document Object Model (DOM) element properties. MSDN: DHTML Properties

Notice from that list that .type can mean many different things depending on what kind of object it is for.

:idea:

P.S.: There is a general info section in help file called OBJ/COM Reference.

Thanks! I've read the OBJ/COM Reference, but I'll check out the MSDN: DHTML Properties too!
