Help Checking Checkboxes

1 post in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi All!

I got a bit of a problem. I need to check some checkboxes on a site, wich I can't seem to do (using _IEFormElementCheckboxSelect & _IEAction). I can't even seem to get back the value of the checkboxes. (using _IEFormElementGetValue).

Since I can't get the info I need straight from the Page Source, I use _IETagNameAllGetCollection, and then sift my way through the mess it returns!

So far I have been succesfull in finding and manipulating buttons, textarea's, some tables, and dropdown select boxes on the site. All of them using the _IEFormElementGett & Set Value function.

Through using $oElements = _IETagNameAllGetCollection($oIE), a For $oElement In $oElements / Next loop, and then checking the atrributes of $oElement, using $oElement.tagname, $, $oElement.classname, $oElement.innertext & $oElement.Innerhtml.

Thanks to this I located on of the checkboxes them self (I think).. TAG nr 165.. This is wat it looks like when the checkbox is checked:

[165]tagname: SPANid: aui-3-2-0PR1-1141classname: v-checkboxinnertext: n.v.t.innerhtml: <INPUT id=gwt-uid-1 tabIndex=0 CHECKED type=checkbox __eventBits="241"><LABEL for=gwt-uid-1 __eventBits="241">n.v.t.</LABEL>

This is Unchecked:

[165] tagname: SPANid: aui-3-2-0PR1-1141classname: v-checkbox innertext:n.v.t.<INPUT id=gwt-uid-1 tabIndex=0 type=checkbox __eventBits="241"><LABEL for=gwt-uid-1 __eventBits="241">n.v.t.</LABEL>

Notice there is no attribute set to CHECKED, and that it's not even a UNCHECKED or something when it's unchecked on the page. It is not using "value=", so that's probably the reason the _IEFormElementGett & Set Value don't work. Also, after checking a freshly loaded page, abouy 8 TAG objects, wich seem to have something to do with that checkbox, get ID's, wich they previously didn't have.. Does anybody have any idea how I can manipulate those darn Checkboxes? How should I use the _IEFormElementCheckboxSelect on this checkbox? Is there any other way to check/uncheck a checkbox?? Many Thanks in advance!!

      Hi everyone
      Hope you're doing great.
      Well, I'm writing a script that allows our Service Desk to clean several temp folder as a first diagnostic. 
      Indeed, the agent in charge of the issue will have to choose what to clean (web browsers temp folders, some windows one etc...)
      I added a progress bar to see the current state of the script but if I select more than one checkbox, it seems that the counting is not done properly and is directly filled at 100% (when at leat 2 boxes are checked) and I don"t get the final message saying that all is done, especially for if the last box is checked.
      But if I launch the process with only one checkbox checked,it's working...
      I've enclosed the au3 files for you because posting them in this post would be... unreadable lol. So you can maybe do some tests as well.
      I'm pretty sure the code can be optimized (a lot  ) and that there is a much better way to achieve what I want the script to be.
      Maybe can someone can give me a hand over here.
      Thanks in advance.

      Hi everyone, 
      I'm currently writing a script that will execute some Robocopy batches among what has been ticked by the Technician.
      The script is divided in two files (the main & the functions) but the thing is that I have to write multiple lines for all controls, as you can see in the functions file.
      1- Is there a way to shorten this?
      2- To avoid writing bunch of lines to check whether checkboxes are checked and to lunch appropriate bat, is there also a way to go quicker when clicking on the submit button? (will be implemented in the SubmitCopyChoice() Function)
      Thanks guys for all the help you can offer
