IE navButton click

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to click on a button on IE but I failed to do so using IEAction and IEFormSubmit. I'm trying to click on the 'Login' button on URL: https://briefing.met.ie/login.php. Please see the source code of page below

<form id="login" action="./login-result.php" method="post">
    <div class="section">
        <div id="login_section">
                <input type="hidden" name="action" value="login"/>
                <label for="username">Username:</label>
                <input type="text" id="username" name="username" />
                <label for="password">Password:</label>
                <input type="password" id="password" name="password" />
    <div class="section">
        <input class="navButton" type="submit" value="Login" />

Is there any specific method to click on button of class navButton? Please help me.

Sorry for not posing my code. I'm adding code below.

#include <IE.au3>
#include <INet.au3>
Global $oIE ;IE object.
Global $sURL = "https://briefing.met.ie/local.php" ;URL
Global $sUserName = "Pooja" ;Login name
Global $sPassword = "Pooja" ;Login password
$oIE = _IECreate ($sURL,1) ;Create IE
$o_form = _IEFormGetObjByName ($oIE, "login") ;login form
$o_login = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($o_form, "username") ;Handle to UserId input
$o_password = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($o_form, "password") ;Handle to Password input
_IEFormElementSetValue ($o_login, $sUserName) ;Set user name
_IEFormElementSetValue ($o_password, $sPassword) ;Set password
$oLoginBtn = _IEFormElementGetCollection ( $o_form , 3 ) ;Get Login button object
_IEAction ($oLoginBtn, "focus") ;Set focus on Login button => Does not work
_IEAction ($oLoginBtn, "click") ;Click the button => Does not work
_IEFormSubmit ( $o_form) ;Submit login form => Does not work
_IELoadWait ($oIE) ;Wait until page loads

You should better define what you mean by "does not work". Also, if IE9, try putting the page in compatability mode first to see if you get a different result.

Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
