IE element .addEventListener or ,attachEvent functionality

Recommended Posts


I am trying to track status change on a IE "select " element.

when i try something like:

While 1
        If $oIE<>0 Then ExitLoop
    $status = _IEGetObjById ($oIE, "status_change")
;~  MsgBox(0,"",$status.innertext)
    $asd = $status.attachEvent("onchange", "testing")

I get "The requested action with this object has failed." error . "testing" is the name of the function i have.

Tried replacing "testing" with testing() but still doesnt work. Even tried .addEventListener - js method but failed too.

Anyone knows how to make this work?

Perhaps, something like this?

#include <IE.au3>

Local $oIE = _IECreate()
Local $sHTML = "<form>" & @CRLF & _
               "<p>Select a different option in the drop-down list box to trigger the onchange event." & @CRLF & _
               "<select name=""selTest"" onchange=""alert('Index: ' + this.selectedIndex + '\nValue: ' + this.options[this.selectedIndex].value)"">" & @CRLF & _
               "<option value=""Books"">Books</option>" & @CRLF & _
               "<option value=""Clothing"">Clothing</option>" & @CRLF & _
               "<option value=""Housewares"">Housewares</option>" & @CRLF & _
               "</select> </p>" & @CRLF & _

_IEBodyWriteHTML($oIE, $sHTML)

Local $oSelect = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "selTest")
ObjEvent($oSelect, "_Select_")

While _IEPropertyGet($oIE, "hwnd") <> 0

Func _Select_onchange()
    ConsoleWrite($oSelect.options($oSelect.selectedIndex).value & @CRLF)

The HTML source is from the onchange event example code from the MSDN web site.
