Mouse Over IE control

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello all,

Attempting to mouse over a specific piece of an IE browser, which then activates a list to appear with several links in it.

The links are hidden until mouseover.

Any suggestions on the best way to do this?

I'm able to get the DOM object, and it's coordinates:

$iMouseCoordX = $otest._offsets.left + 10

$iMouseCoordY = $otest._offsets.top + 10

I would like to use one of the _IE* functions, but none seem to be able to do what I need...so then i tried MouseMove:

AutoItSetOption ( "MouseCoordMode", 2 ) ; 2 = relative coords to the client area of the active window

MouseMove ( $iMouseCoordX, $iMouseCoordY, 50 )

This wasn't effective, since I have no idea how many toolbars might be present, and how to compensate the Y coord.

Edit: just thought about it, i can get the controlpos of the window for the mousemove to work, but i'd still rather use an _ie* function.

ControlGetPos or any-other normal control commands won't work in IE or any other browsers. Proof: Try to get the Control info using AutoIt Window Info Tool...

No, you use control get pos to get the actual client window...the dom object position, you must get through the dom properties...the combination of those two items is the location (assumed that it's visible on the screen...AND you are scrolled all the way at the top of the page...or else, you need to logically scroll down)

See Example 2 of _IEPropertyGet() in the helpfile.

Thanks, all set on the coordinates, is there any ability to perform a 'mouseover'?

I know selenium may, but not sure the actual code to do it.
