SOLVED _IEFormElementOptionSelect help

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to automate the selection of an <option value> in an IE form. The form I am automating does not have a "name" or "id" value so i can't use _IEFormGetObjByName and then _IEFormElementGetObjByName.

So I have the following code:

$oForm = _IEFormGetCollection($OpenIE, 0)
$oSelect = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForm)
_IEFormElementOptionSelect($oSelect, "5449", 1, "byValue")

I'd prefer to use _IEFormElementGetObjByName but $s_name is not static i.e. it could be "add_role_12345" or "add_role_54321", etc.

Can anyone give me an example of how I can make this work?

NB There is only one select box on the form.

Many thanks in advance.

solved by finding indexed instance using

$iElemCnt = @extended
  $sMsg = "Element values:" & @CRLF
  $i = 0
  For $oElem In $oSelect
   $sMsg &= $i & ":  " & _IEFormElementGetValue($oElem) & @CRLF
   $i += 1
  MsgBox(64, $iElemCnt & " Results", $sMsg)

then amending

$oSelect = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForm)
$oSelect = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForm, 10)
