Script doesn't continu after 'Choose File to Upload' IE-window

6 posts in this topic

I want to upload a file thru Autoit. After I click on the Browse-button it opens the 'Choose File to Upload'-window. For some reason the script doesn't continu after opening the 'Choose File to Upload'-window. It won't paste the contents of the clipboard.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <IE.au3>
$GUI = GUICreate($protitle, 1024, 800)
$object = ObjCreate("Shell.Explorer.2")

_IENavigate($object, "http://somesite.com")
_IELoadWait($object)

$oinput = _IEGetObjByName($object, "userfile")
_IEAction($oinput, "click")
_IELoadWait($object)

Send("{CTRLDOWN}v{CTRLUP}")

Does anyone know what's wrong?

I don't see a reason to call _IELoadWait at all here... _IENavigate() calls is automatically and it won't have any effect after the click action because the page is already loaded (the script would just continue).

ClipGet() will retrieve the clipboard text btw...

Maybe try just a sleep(2000) after _IEAction($oinput, "click"), and then a Send(ClipGet()) to see if it does what you'd expect...

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?

That doesn't work either. It just doesn't paste anything.

Thanks, I tried that, but it doesn't work either. What I noticed is that it doesn't recognize the "Choose File to Upload"-window. WinGetPos("Choose File to Upload") returns nothing. The weird thing is that the window-title is the same as Au3Info.exe returns. Any idea what else to try?

I too face the same issue with "Choose File to Upload"- window in IE. Tried many but no luck yet.
