ie.au3 - IE9 Still a Problem

Recommended Posts

I added to a thread about these IE9 problems in the Developer Chat forum but I haven't had any replies so I am posting it here since this seems to be the more official way to get help.

Problems with using the Internet Explorer UDF (ie.au3) with IE9 have been posted elsewhere but in essence, some functions like clicking on a button weren't / aren't working under IE9. I am running under Win7 64 bit and I have broken scripts that won't run because of this. I tried compatibility mode (and a couple of functions that were posted to switch to other modes); I tried using the latest ie.au3 version; and, I tried compiling with the latest Beta but the results are the same each time. I tried sample code from the previous threads that demonstrate clicking on a button working when using COM functions directly (under compatibility mode) and not working when using ie.au3.

My impression from what I can find on the forums is that this is considered to be a solved problem. There are some changes in the UDF that seem to be focused on dealing with this and there is a closed ticket that seems to address these issues. None-the-less, I am still having the same problem. Am I missing something obvious, is this actually not solved (yet) or is it possibly a different variation of the same issue?

Help would be appreciated. I have some scripts using this UDF that I can't support at the present because of this.

Problems with using the Internet

Describe the problem or provide a link.

Edit: Post a sample reproducer of your code.

Here is the sample code from previous threads on this topic:

1. This one doesn't use ie.au3 and it works under compatibility mode (but not if I turn it off):

$oIE = ObjCreate("InternetExplorer.Application")
$oIE.visible = 1
$oIE.navigate2("http://wdextras.womansday.com/contests_texas.html")
Sleep(5000)
$oB = $oIE.document.getElementsByName("submit").Item(0)
$oEvt = ObjEvent($oB, "Evt_")
ConsoleWrite($oB.outerhtml & @CRLF)
Func Evt_($s)
    ConsoleWrite($s & @CRLF)
EndFunc

2. This one uses ie.au3 and it doesn't work in either mode:

; TEST2
; This test uses IE.au3
; FROM: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/126670-ie9-automation-problems/page__st__60

; This is supposed to work in compatability mode
; (but it doesn't)

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IEAttach("http://wdextras.womansday.com/contests_texas.html", "url")

$oB = $oIE.document.getElementsByName("submit").Item(0)
$oEvt = ObjEvent($oB, "Evt_")

ConsoleWrite($oB.outerhtml & @CRLF)
$oB.click

Func Evt_($s)
    ConsoleWrite($s & @CRLF)
EndFunc

      Hello Everyone,
      I'm looking for a way to use an already open Internet Explorer (IE) window (if one is up and running) and then navigate to a new URL in a new IE tab.
      I thought that _IECreate would easily meet my needs. However, when I use the following script:
      #include <IE.au3> Local $oIE = _IECreate("https://" & $Server & ":8444/", 1, 1, 0, 1) ...with one or more open IE windows, it still opens yet a new IE window.
      Are there any other ideas for how to reliably use an already open IE windows and then how to open a new tab in IE to navigate to a new URL?
      Regards,
      TX Techie

      Hi All,
      I've tried to create a script to browse to a web page in IE, but it only works for some sites, I've tried to simplify the script as much as possible, hoping you can point me in the right direction - thanks.
      This one going to Google does work:
      #include <IE.au3> $oIE = _IECreate("https://www.google.com.au/", 0, 1, 1) _IELoadWait($oIE) _IEQuit($oIE) But this one going to OneDrive opens the IE page, but fails immediately returning the errors, and the IE window is not closed:
      --> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Error from function _IELoadWait, $_IESTATUS_ClientDisconnected (-2147023174, Browser has been deleted prior to operation.)
      --> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Error from function _IELoadWait, $_IESTATUS_InvalidObjectType ()
      --> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Error from function _IEQuit, $_IESTATUS_InvalidObjectType
      #include <IE.au3> $oIE = _IECreate("https://abccorp-my.sharepoint.com/", 0, 1, 1) _IELoadWait($oIE) _IEQuit($oIE) Even if I put a sleep timer in for 10 seconds after the _IECreate it still doesn't work
      Thanks all!

      On that page is a login form requiring username, password and then the clicking of the button (or pressing enter but I'm not a fan of using Send)
      Here's the section of code from the page that specifically deals with the form...
      <form> <div class="error-message-login" data-test="error-message"></div> <label> <span>User email</span> <div class="ui input"> <input id="email" type="text" placeholder="Your email"> </div> </label> <label> <span>Password</span> <div class="ui input"> <input id="password" type="password" placeholder="Password"> </div> </label> <button class="ui primary button" role="button" data-test="login">Login</button> <p> <a class="forgot-your-password" href="https://www.rightmove.co.uk/forgottenPasswordForm.html">Forgot your password?</a> </p> </form> Specifically the <button class...></button> is causing me problems as I can't find a way to click it. The 'User email' and 'Password' objects have an 'id' so I can reference these in the AutoIT code and interact with them and the button also previously had the id of 'login' but I guess in a change to this page that was altered.
      Oddly, if I get the code to show the instance of IE that is created and manually click Login or press Enter the page gives me an error saying 'Please enter your email address' even though it is there. I have to manually go into each field and make a change i.e. adding a character to the end of each field then deleting it before it will let me in by either clicking Login or pressing enter. So maybe there's so code elsewhere on the page that knows the fields haven't been physically typed in?
      Any help on this would be much appreciated.

      Hi, first of all thanks to all the guys who always help people in the forums, I wouldn't be able to do anything if wasn't for your help, even if I don't ask it myself.
       
      I've created this code to get some info on a monitoring network on my work. It relays on _IETableGetCollection and _IETableWriteToArray.
      It works well, but take around 3:25 minutes to get the info from 28 pages (some of them are large and take longer to load, but most of them are small and fast).
      My question is if you see a way to get the program to go faster...
       
      I've tried to make it easy for you to understand and edited somethings with sensitive info.
      (Some of the pages doesn't have the black divider with MIRA in the end, so I need to search if it is there or not.)

      Here is the URL to get to the page with the code as shown in the screenshot https://www.rightmove.co.uk/house-prices/detail.html?country=england&locationIdentifier=POSTCODE^1603593&searchLocation=SW1V+1AA&year=1&referrer=listChangeCriteria
      But how do I select the highlighted text, the address?
      I've tried variations of the below code but to no avail so far
      Local $oClassReturn = $oIE.document.getElementsByClassName("soldList") If Not IsObj($oClassReturn) Then Exit ConsoleWrite("Error in $oClassReturn" & @CRLF) Local $oTagReturn = $oClassReturn.Item(0).getElementsByTagName("div") If Not IsObj($oTagReturn) Then Exit ConsoleWrite("Error in $oTagReturn" & @CRLF) MsgBox(0, "TEST", $oTagReturn.Item(0))
