How to select and then click on the selected option.

Recommended Posts

Can someone give me some pointers here? The option selection works fine, but I cannot get it to click on the selected option. What I am trying to accomplish is the make the selection and have it activate the dowork() routine.

based on finding the correct selection. Actually what I want it to do is go thru one by one and select and click on each one until all done. However if I can get it to select one... I should be able to figure out how to get it to loop thru them all...should be a simple matter of removing the exitloop command.

AU3 Script
#include <IE.au3>
Local $oIE = _IEAttach("Fruit")
MsgBox(0, "The URL", _IEPropertyGet($oIE, "locationurl"),3)
$sMyString = "pineapple"
$oOptions = _IEGetObjById ($oIE, "myselect")
    For $oOption in $oOptions
        $sOptionText = _IEPropertyGet($oOption, "innerText")
        If StringInStr($sOptionText, $sMyString) Then
           ConsoleWrite("Found It.... " & @CRLF)
           _IEAction($oOption, "click")
           _IELoadWait ($oIE)
            ConsoleWrite ($sOptionText & " NOT FOUND Still looking for " & $sMyString & @CRLF)

Is this some sort of automation to bypass a webpage's check for scripting bots?

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

I have no idea what a scripting bot is... I just need to cycle thru a bunch of options which when selected dumps code into a text box on each selection. Then I need to grab that text and save it to my hard drive. The most basic automation you can imagine.. I can easily do it with mouse clicks but its so much better when it can be done directly and does not depend on screen resolution.
