why the script freezes when I submit a form to IE

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

this is my first time trying IE UDFs, I'm login a ClearQuest site - software defect management system produced by IBM, I'm able to go through the login page and enter the main page, but my script doesn't run properly like below described:

a. the form submitted result is not printed out at the end of section1.

b. the setting of a query doesn't start in section2.

c. the IE has no further response too.

d. the script tray in the taskbar is still there showing it's running, but I don't see any progress it runs.

my whole script is here, and I replaced some private info with 'X', please help me analyze what is wrong, thanks.

;login int the ClearQuest

$obj_IE = _IECreate("http://192.168.252.XX/cqweb/login",1);get IE's object

$obj_FormLogin = _IEFormGetObjByName($obj_IE,"formLogin");get form's object

$obj_eleUserName = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($obj_FormLogin,"username");get input control's object

_IEFormElementSetValue($obj_eleUserName,"XXXXXXX");set usename value

$obj_elePassword = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($obj_FormLogin,"password")

_IEFormElementSetValue($obj_elePassword,"XXXX");set password value

$obj_selectDB = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($obj_FormLogin,"userDb")

_IEFormElementOptionselect($obj_selectDB,2,1,"byIndex",1);select proper value

$res_submit = _IEFormSubmit($obj_FormLogin,1);submit the form because the _IEAction fails to click the Login button

ConsoleWrite($res_submit&@CR&@error&@CR)

;section2, submit a defect query

$obj_formTopFrame = _IEFormGetObjByName($obj_IE,"formTopframe")

$obj_entityID = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($obj_formTopFrame,"entityId")

_IEFormElementSetValue($obj_entityID,"UDevC0014XXXX")

_IEFormSubmit($obj_formTopFrame,1)

;quit

_IEQuit($obj_IE)

oh, when I change the 2nd parameter in the _IEFormSubmit from '1' to '0', the consolewrite executed, but error appears as well.

--> IE.au3 V2.4-0 Error from function _IEFormSubmit, $_IEStatus_InvalidDataType

it seems, the getting object for form 'formTopFrame' failed, I'm sure this is the correct form name, is this because the $obj_IE doesn't work for current IE status, the URL and page has changed?

Without knowing what the application is doing, it is impossible to say, but there are often very complex things going on with Javascript when you submit a form. The warnings you are getting are likely because the page has not yet loaded after the submit action.

First thing I would try would be to add _IELoadWait($oIE) after your form submit. If that is not successful, I would suggest you look at the second example for _IEAction that uses a keystroke SEND and follow that with the _IELoadWait.

thank you! I'll add a check after the form submit and see what would happen.
