javascript and _IEGetObjById

2 posts in this topic

A search of a web page can retrieve 1 to 20 (or more) links split into 20 per page I can go on to the second page by using:

If $x = 20 Then
Sleep(2000) ;two seconds
$oNext = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "pager1")
_IEAction($oNext, "click")

where $x is the count of links on the previous page but how do I get to the next page given the next page object is in javascript as seen here:

<a id="pager1" href="javascript:__doPostBack('pager1','2')">2</a> -

<a id="pager1" href="javascript:__doPostBack('pager1','3')">3</a> -

<a id="pager1" href="javascript:__doPostBack('pager1','4')">4</a> -

<a id="pager1" href="javascript:__doPostBack('pager1','5')">5</a>

<a id="pager1" href="javascript:__doPostBack('pager1','2')">Next ></a>

is there a way of sending the doPostBack('pager1','3') information? BTW I just thought (I.m not at my own PC) can I get IEGetObjById by index so somthing like that?

Looks like this isn't doable within the confines of Autoit - below is what I've ended up with. I'm curious though if the javascript had been given different id like pager1, pager2, pager3... or been given name="pager1" so I could have used index would it have worked? Oh and I know this only works on some PC & IE combinations - I only have the one PC.

#include <IE.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <Date.au3>
Global $getdate[1]
$file = FileOpen(@MyDocumentsDir & "AIT_count.txt", 2)
If $file = -1 Then
MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open file: " & "C:Documents and Settingsjoe.uryMy DocumentsAutoIt_codegetterprocessingAIT_count.txt")
;get working days in date range
$daysearch = HowManyWorkDays("2003/05/21", "2003/05/23") ;2003/07/01
MsgBox(0, "Number of Weekdays", "There are " & $daysearch & " weekdays between the given dates")
For $i = 1 To $daysearch
;open and fill in the search form
$oIE = _IECreate("")
$oForm = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "Form1")
_IEAction($oForm, "focus")
$oQuery = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "txtDate")
_IEFormElementSetValue($oQuery, $getdate[$i] & @CRLF)
_IEFormElementCheckBoxSelect($oForm, 0, "", 1, "byIndex")
$oNext = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "cmdSearch")
_IEAction($oNext, "click")
;grab results into memory
$filewhole = _IEDocReadHTML($oIE)
;get required links for page 1
$oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE)
$iNumLinks = @extended
For $oLink In $oLinks
If StringInStr($oLink.href, ".doc") Then
;ConsoleWrite($oLink.href & @CRLF)
FileWrite($file, $oLink.href & " " & $getdate[$i] & @CRLF)
;get page 2 if exists (the problem exists here because they've only given an Id (no name)
;and they've used the same Id to every instance of a new page.
If StringRegExp($filewhole, "('pager1','2')", 0) Then
$oNext = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "pager1")
_IEAction($oNext, "click")
;get required links for page 2
$oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE)
$iNumLinks = @extended
For $oLink In $oLinks
If StringInStr($oLink.href, ".doc") Then
;ConsoleWrite($oLink.href & @CRLF)
FileWrite($file, $oLink.href & " " & $getdate[$i] & @CRLF)
;guess I'll have to go to each date page over 2 long and do it manually so I'll get that information:
If StringRegExp($filewhole, "('pager1','9')", 0) Then
FileWrite($file, $getdate[$i] & " has 9 pages" & @CRLF)
ElseIf StringRegExp($filewhole, "('pager1','8')", 0) Then
FileWrite($file, $getdate[$i] & " has 8 pages" & @CRLF)
ElseIf StringRegExp($filewhole, "('pager1','7')", 0) Then
FileWrite($file, $getdate[$i] & " has 7 pages" & @CRLF)
ElseIf StringRegExp($filewhole, "('pager1','6')", 0) Then
FileWrite($file, $getdate[$i] & " has 6 pages" & @CRLF)
ElseIf StringRegExp($filewhole, "('pager1','5')", 0) Then
FileWrite($file, $getdate[$i] & " has 5 pages" & @CRLF)
ElseIf StringRegExp($filewhole, "('pager1','4')", 0) Then
FileWrite($file, $getdate[$i] & " has 4 pages" & @CRLF)
ElseIf StringRegExp($filewhole, "('pager1','3')", 0) Then
FileWrite($file, $getdate[$i] & " has 3 pages" & @CRLF)

;what a good function this is!
Func HowManyWorkDays($sStartDate, $sEndDate)
Dim $MyDate
Dim $MyTime
$myStartDate = $sStartDate
$myEndDate = $sEndDate
$countWeekDay = 0
$CountDays = _DateDiff("d", $myStartDate, $myEndDate)
For $inc = 0 To $CountDays
$TempDate = _DateAdd('D', $inc, $myStartDate)
_DateTimeSplit($TempDate, $MyDate, $MyTime)
$FileYear = $MyDate[1]
If $MyDate[2] < 10 Then
$FileMonth = "0" & $MyDate[2]
$FileMonth = $MyDate[2]
If $MyDate[3] < 10 Then
$FileDay = "0" & $MyDate[3]
$FileDay = $MyDate[3]
;Returns Day of the Week Range is 1 to 7 where 1=Sunday
$iWeekday = _DateToDayOfWeek($FileYear, $FileMonth, $FileDay)
If $iWeekday > 1 And $iWeekday < 7 Then
If StringLen($FileDay) = 2 Then
_ArrayAdd($getdate, $FileDay & '-' & $FileMonth & '-' & $FileYear)
$countWeekDay = $countWeekDay + 1
Return $countWeekDay
EndFunc ;==>HowManyWorkDays

      Dear Colleagues,
      I have no idea how to refer to style.display in my loop. There is a button like: 
      <input name="ctl00$bodyPlaceholder$btnFecharProcessamento" class="button" id="bodyPlaceholder_btnFecharProcessamento" style="display: none;" onclick="FecharJanelaProcessamento();return false;" type="submit" value="Fechar"> I want it to be clicked as soon as button's style change from style="display: none;" to  style= ="display: inline-block;" 
      This is what I got, but it's not working...
      Func GetButtons() $oButtons = _IEGetObjByName($oForm,"ctl00$bodyPlaceholder$btnFecharProcessamento",-1) $i = 0 While $i <> 1 For $oBtn In $oButtons If _IEFormElementGetValue($oBtn) = "Fechar" And $ = "display: inline-block;" Then $i = 1 _IEAction($oBtn, "focus") _IEAction($oBtn, "click") ExitLoop EndIf Next WEnd EndFunc  
      I will really appreciate if you could help me with these loop!

      I'm new to the forums! Couldn't find any threads covering this issue. Sorry if I'm wrong.

      I'm having problems changing the text/value of a input box. The particular box doesn't have a name or id, just: class="jq_hotkeys_enabled form-control".
      This class appears multiple times throughout the source, so I don't think It's right to reference that object. 
      See image 1.
      However, I've managed to find a object with the name "ctl00$content$ctrl$ucServiceTime$rpServicetimes$ctl00$edtHiddenResourceHelper" which contains the value of the input box, and the id for the person in the dropdown/combobox left of it. (with "dummy-1" selected).
      See image 2.
      As you can see the value is 3982,4545     ( name , time )
      But when I try to change the value of it by doing:
      #include <IE.au3> Local $oIE = _IEAttach(WinGetHandle("[CLASS:IEFrame]"),"embedded") Local $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, "aspnetForm") Local $oInput = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "ctl00$content$ctrl$ucServiceTime$rpServicetimes$ctl00$edtHiddenResourceHelper") _IEFormElementSetValue($oInput, "3982,1337") The box doesn't get its new value. I  can see in the source that it's changed though.
      See image 3.
      However, if I do: 
      #include <IE.au3> Local $oIE = _IEAttach(WinGetHandle("[CLASS:IEFrame]"),"embedded") Local $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, "aspnetForm") Local $oInput = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "ctl00$content$ctrl$ucServiceTime$rpServicetimes$ctl00$edtHiddenResourceHelper") _IEFormElementSetValue($oInput, "3982,1337") $oIE.document.parentwindow.execScript("theForm.submit()") ; But it needs to reload the page The box gets its new value after the page reloads by the theForm.submit() function. 
      This is a bit unfortunate as I want the changes to happen instantly like when I type in the box with the keyboard... or select in the combobox.
      Maybe someone knows how I can do this? Looking forward to an answer! 
      Thanks in advance.
      Note: Unfortunately I can't provide with the real URL as it is constricted to employees in the company I work for, but let me know If I should provide anything else.

      How can I check if element is focused in Firefox using FF.au3 UDF?
      This is my try:
      I have prepared a function that checks if the object is focused:
      _FFCmd('FFau3.isfocused=function isfocused(a){try{return (a === document.activeElement)}catch(e){return}}') $oElm = _FFXPath("//*[@id='someId']") ConsoleWrite(_FFIsFocused($oElm)) Func _FFIsFocused($sElement = "") Local $isFoc = _FFCmd("FFau3.isfocused(" & $sElement & ")") Return $isFoc EndFunc ;==>_FFIsFocused Now, the javascript part is tested and it does return successfully.
      After a lot of try/fails I inserted an alert box in order to display the object being compared.
      Here is what I got
      The focused object is: [object XULElement]
      The object that I send for comparing is [object HTMLInputElement]
      Why is that?

      I am not sure on how to grab the innertext I want. Is there a way I can just grab the second line, or is there a better way to do it all together? 
      #include <IE.au3> $oIE = _IEAttach("Form Details") $oDiv = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "Col3") ;Phone MsgBox (0,"Oops",$oDiv.outertext) When I use this code I get

      Hi all.
      I'm playing a bit with the ScriptControl object using as base this example by @genius257.
      here is a very simple try, ... but it fails. what I'm doing wrong?
      Local $oSC = ObjCreate("ScriptControl") $oSC.Language = "JScript" $oSC.ExecuteStatement('alert("I am a javascript alert box!");') MsgBox(0,'AutoIt','Pause') Thanks
