Post Comment on Facebook

Recommended Posts


Hello all,

I am working on a simple script that can run through array of facebook page url and what it does is, it will post a comment to the latest post on the wall of the page. My problem is, I do not know how the Submit button in Facebook can be click, because it will only appear when the mouse click on the text area to enter the comment. I am using embedded IE and I want the window to always minimize if its running. Please help me anyone. Really appreciate your help

        If Not _FileReadToArray($urlSrc,$urlArray) Then
        MsgBox(4096,"Error", " File url.txt not found in your script directory")
        For $x = 1 to $urlArray[0]
        _IENavigate( $IE, $urlArray[$x] )           ;Msgbox(0,'Record:' & $x, $urlArray[$x])
        $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName ($IE, "add_comment")
        $oQuery = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($oForm, "add_comment_text")
        $oSubmit = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($oQuery, "comment")
        ;If Not _FileReadToArray($msgSrc,$msgArray) Then
        ;MsgBox(4096,"Error", " File msg.txt not found in your script directory")
        _IEFormElementSetValue ($oQuery, "this is the comment need to post")
        _IEAction ($oQuery, "visible")
        _IEAction ($oSubmit, "visible")
        _IEAction ($oForm, "visible")
        _IEAction ($oForm, "click")
    $i = $i + 1
    Until $i = GUICtrlRead($Loop)

i know i am reviving a very old post , but i am wondering if

$oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName ($IE, "add_comment")
        $oQuery = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($oForm, "add_comment_text")

i am pretty sure the add_comment_text part still works from a little scouting that i ve done in the code window of facebook page, but i cant get the obj name... anyone trying anything similar?
