Framesets in IE

9 posts in this topic

I'm trying to do a button click on a webpage, but I can't figure out how to deal with framesets within one another. My program crashes at this code:

; Click Add
    $rightFrame = _IEFrameGetObjByName($IE_Window, "main")
    $addButton = _IEGetObjByName($rightFrame, "add")
    _IEAction($addButton, "click")

and SciTE keeps giving this error:

C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Include\IE.au3 (2692) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:
Return SetError($_IEStatus_Success, 0, $o_object.location.href())
Return SetError($_IEStatus_Success, 0, $o_object.location.href()^ ERROR
->21:40:44 AutoIT3.exe ended.rc:1
>Exit code: 1    Time: 7.227

I'm searching the forums but can't find a solution to this. Any help would be great! I attached the HTML too. Thanks!

Where do you get the error ? On the _IEaction line?

This error is from the IE UDF - if you double click on the error in Scite it will

pop-up IE.au3 on the error line. What IE and AU versions are you using ?

The cited line is from _IEPropertyGet() with "locationurl" inside the IE.au3 UDF.

So what makes you think it is failing within the three lines of code posted?

;)

I think my IE version is 8, but I can't remember for sure and I can't check it at the moment. My AU3 version is v3.3.6.1. I think it fails on the IEGetObjByName line, but I'll double check.

The cited line is from _IEPropertyGet() with "locationurl" inside the IE.au3 UDF.

I'm assuming it's not a problem with IE.au3. I guess I could be wrong, but I'm new to manipulating webpages so I thought it was my problem. There are frames and framesets on the page that I'm not sure if I'm handling correctly.

In your screenshot I see:

FrameSet --> FrameSet --> Frame "main" --> Form "Form1" --> Input "add"

In the code you posted, you only try to get one frame, then the Input tag without even referencing the Form. You might try something more like this:

_IEErrorHandlerRegister()

; ...

$oFrameSet1 = _IEFrameGetCollection($oIE, 0) ; First frameset (no name, by index)
$oFrameSet2 = _IEFrameGetCollection($oFrameSet1, 1) ; Second frame(set) under first frameset (no name, by index)
$oFrame = _IEFrameGetObjByName($oFrameSet2, "main") ; Second frame under second frameset (by name)
$oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oFrame, "Form1") ; Form under frame (by name)
$oInput = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "add") ; Input tag under form (by name)

Note the addition of the error handler. Run it in SciTE and watch the console pane for error reports.

;)

Wow, Thanks PsaltyDS! I was thinking I needed something along these lines, from reading the helpfile and other posts. I'll give this a try!

In your screenshot I see:

FrameSet --> FrameSet --> Frame "main" --> Form "Form1" --> Input "add"

After playing around with it, I still can't get it to work. Although I got really close at one point. I tried the example code from the help file:

; *******************************************************
; Example 1 - Open frameset example, get collection of frames
;               and loop through them displaying their source URL's
; *******************************************************
;

; ...

$oFrames = _IEFrameGetCollection ($IE_Window)
$iNumFrames = @extended
For $i = 0 to ($iNumFrames - 1)
    $oFrame = _IEFrameGetCollection ($IE_Window, $i)
    MsgBox(0, "Frame Info", _IEPropertyGet ($oFrame, "locationurl"))
Next

When I run it, $iNumFrames is 3, which is correct. IEPropertyGet returns manage_T.asp, then manage_L.asp. So far so good, but then it should return manage_R.asp, but it throws these errors:

--> COM Error Encountered in MyScript.au3
----> $IEComErrorScriptline = 2692
----> $IEComErrorNumberHex = 80070005
----> $IEComErrorNumber = -2147024891
----> $IEComErrorWinDescription = Access is denied.
----> $IEComErrorDescription = 
----> $IEComErrorSource = 
----> $IEComErrorHelpFile = 
----> $IEComErrorHelpContext = 
----> $IEComErrorLastDllError = 0

+>21:38:52 AutoIT3.exe ended.rc:0
>Exit code: 0    Time: 13.038

It's interesting because I tried some variations, like:

$oFrames = _IEFrameGetCollection ($IE_Window)
$oFrame = _IEFrameGetCollection ($IE_Window, 2)
MsgBox(0, "Frame Info", _IEPropertyGet ($oFrame, "locationurl"))

which should show the url with "manage_R.asp" on the end. What's weird is it worked perfectly one time, showing me the correct "locationurl" for "manage_R.asp"!!! But I didn't change a thing, and now it's not working again. I kept trying, hoping to get a different result, but it's still broken. IEPropertyGet gives a blank MsgBox.

I'm still accessing the page with the HTML I attached to my first post. Anyone know why it's saying "Access is denied."? Thanks for any ideas!

Edit:

You might try something more like this:

PS, I did take all your suggestions and tried the code you posted, along with playing around with it to see if I could make it work. It also gave errors, so I'm thinking this problem has to do with the html page I'm trying to automate??? ;) Edited by apstanto

Cross-site scripting (XSS) protection. You can try getting the full URL to the failed frame reference and opening it directly in a separate instance of IE.

;)

So is it protection against XSS that is preventing me from getting the URL?

Also, wouldn't I use the _IEPropertyGet ($oFrame, "locationurl") to get the full URL? I couldn't get this to work in a message box. It comes out blank and throws the errors.
