How do I get AutoIt to read an IE select box into an array? [solved]

Recommended Posts

Dear AutoIt community,

How do I get AutoIt to read all the options of an IE select box into an array so I can tell it to go through each selection one by one?

I know the name of the selection box (via IE-Builder) but I'm having a difficult time figuring out the code to get AutoIt to read all of the selection options.

The end result I want is to get AutoIt to select each option one by one and submit the form. I figure I need to get AutoIt to 'read' each selection string of the selection box and put each string into an array to do a

FOR IN NEXT
loop so AutoIt can go through them one by one submitting the form each time.

If there is an an easier way please let me know.

Of course I've pressed F1 but I can't see anything in the help file that will help :-)

As usual any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Figured it out went something like this:

$oIE = _IECreate ($sURL)
$oSelectBox = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "SelectBox")
$sSelectBox = _IEPropertyGet ($oSelectBox, "innertext")
ConsoleWrite ($sSelectBox)

Once I got the string it's easy to chop it up into an array.

AutoIt is so awesome, pity my knowledge of it isn't yet...

      Hi all, I wasnt active in this Forum forum for Years.¬†ūüėÖ
      Since I need something with Json in AutoIt i write a little UDF to save a variable to file to read it with another language - and back. After a while until my other script grows i thought - lets integrate all variables wich is possible, because i want have arrays to.
      This is my first public UDF in Autoit - normaly my AutoIt scripts are quick an dirty.... - like the examples for this udf. - someone want to write nice examples?
      I tried to write this UDF properly, cared for processing speed, low mem consumption as possible, a short code, and a high usability without beeing very familiar with arrays.
      What is it for? - convert nearly all types of variables to a json string for saving it in a file or to an ini. Read it back in to a same formated variable and preserv variable types. All array types are supported with nested arrays, the only restriction is ram and array/stringsize - and time if the array is very big. You can use Filters for variable types and some other options.
      If anyone found a bug or any suggestions, please post it.

      Hi all. 
      Sorry if my words are confusing because I am not good at English.
      I am writing code to embed website with Recaptcha in GUI. And then, the code will automatically press the "I'm not a robot" button. The problem here is:
         - The code still works fine when entering iFrame to interact with Recaptcha with the URL is "https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api2/demo"
      <snip>
       
         - But for other URLs (such as "https://recaptcha-demo.appspot.com/recaptcha-v2-checkbox.php"), the code cannot be entered into the iframe.
       
      Code:
      <snip>  
      I did a lot of research but didn't know why.
       I sincerely thanks for the help.

      I am pretty sure the site that I am using was updated and now I am not seeing the same tags/elements that I used to. I tried using a UIAspy to see if I could grab them that way with no luck. 
      What do I need to do to be able to automate this again. Are the elements hidden somewhere?
      Instead of highlighting established account is highlights all of the web page almost. How can I get to the detail again? 
      I used to grab establish account by the name. Now I have nothing to even try to grab. 
      There are not elements in the event viewer either. 
       


       
      This is what happens when I try to inspect the element and click established account. 
      I get the same type of results in chrome
