Click buttons in IE.

Recommended Posts

I have a webpage that i am looking to click several buttons.

The first page has a new PO button with the ID of 'L_NewItem' and i am able to automate this, but when it goes to the second page to click Save and Close with the ID of 'L_NewFormSaveClose' i am unable to automate it. Here is the code. Do i need to put in an if then statement. You must excuse me as i am new to autoit and scripting. After this page there is an addtional field that is named Purchase Order No. that i would like to copy and paste into another application

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE =_IECreate("https://domain.com/C0/Purchase%20Order%20Number%20Generato/Lists/Purchase%20Order%20Number%20Generator/AllItems.aspx")

;New Po Number

$oNewPOBTN = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, 'L_NewItem')

_IEAction ($oNewPOBTN, "click")

;Save and Close Button

$osavclose = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, 'L_NewFormSaveClose')

_IEAction ($osavclose, "click")

So I had to add a _IELoadWait($oIE) in between.

No all i have to to is figure out how to copy the text from the PO field.

I came up with this and it finds IPO but includes other text. I am trying to just have it copy the PO numbr "IPO000" for example.

;search the page

$sText = _IEBodyReadText ($oIE)

$aText = StringSplit($sText,@CRLF)

; Locate any text with IPO

For $x = 1 to $aText[0]

If StringInStr($aText[$x],"IPO") Then

There might be better ways to read the text you want. Since we don't see the HTML of the page you are working with, it's hard for us to see how to help. You might look at _IEPropertyGet() for the "innnerText" property. It depends on the specifics of the element you are reading.

Have you used a DOM Inspector like DebugBar on the page?
