IE.au3 and Javascript :Wait page AND javascript fully loaded

Recommended Posts

timmalos

Hi guys.

First of all, i hope u will understand my problem as i'm French and i'm not very good in English.

I got a trouble with my simulation.

I want to create a script that do some actions on a webpage. I use IE.au3, but the page is a full javascript application, so when IE is fully loaded (and _IELoadWait() ends) some content is still created dynamically by Javascript.

Before i can do my job and click on a button with DOM functions, i need to really WAIT javascript's work is finished.

Is there a way to do it?

Thx for ur help,

Tim

Is there a way to do it?

I doubt it. Here are two things that MIGHT work:

Look around the page and find an element that is dynamically created.

Then, using IE.au3, continuously poll for data about this element. When it succeeds/gives-empty data, you know the page exists and the Javascript is loaded, as Javascript created that element in the first place.

Option 2:

Use a hard coded timer or user input. This may work depending on the complexity of the javascript, operating environment etc.

I currently use your option 2 with sleeps, but i want to do better as i need to make a general solution (because i generate these simulations automatically and don't know how many sleeps i need to put in seach simulation).

Furthermore, i need to get the exact time the simulation takes (monitoring/supervision task) and with sleeps i can't have a good timer.

Your option 1 would be great but like in my first sentence i must do as if i didn't know the relevant page. Hence i can't say ok i wait for THIS element to be load. But maybe is it possible to add myself an element at the end of the page with Javascript and wait for him to answer? I don't think so cause he will be inserted by another Javascript thread regardless to the javascript running by IE, but maybe someone can have an idea.

So you know enough about the pages to be able to manipulate them after they are loaded, but not enough to know what dynamic elements you can look for on the page? This sounds strange - perhaps you need to explain in more detail.

There is no general answer to your question. The Ajax processing is asyncronous and there is no way for the browser to know whether it is complete or not. You'll need to apply your knowledge about the pages to devise a scheme that works for you.

Would it be possible to get the HTML source every second or so and search the source (string) for whatever dynamic elements are available?

I mean i can manipulate the page after she is loaded because my scenario does it. But This scenario is generated by a robot. The human (who don't know anything about Autoit) say : I want to do this and this on this page.So my scenario does these actions after the page is loaded.That could work if i asked my user to say to my robot : "The last element loading is ..." but generally he won't be able because he dosn't know anything in development.

That's why i asked a 'general solution' so that my robot wait with _IeLoadWait and do some actions to verify the page is well loaded and then do what the user asked.

But it seems impossible so i'll open a support for each scenario : If there is a problem i'll correct the scenaio manually myself.

Edit : Or something i could do using GMK idea is : The first time scenario is launch, he wait some time with Sleep() for example, each second he get the DOM source and see which element is the last (or at least in the lasts), write it and then use this element next.

      Wrote a script that grabs all of the IP addresses from Netflix's IP log, checks the IPs and returns suspicious activity.
      Everything works as it should but only when _IECreate is set to visible. When visible is set to false, it fails to login for some reason.
      Any ideas what might cause it and/or how to circumvent that?

      Is it possible to edit the <textarea></textarea>  field with AutoIt?  If anyone could assist me on how. Than I could have a better understanding and chance in figuring it out on my main script. Thank you

      Hey Guys,
      Hope that you can help me with something, maybe this is a bug in the new version of AUTOIT but first i will check it with you to know for sure.
      I have made a simple GUI with a Embedded IE Object, then i would like to read the HTML with _IEBodyReadHTML(), easy right?
      When i use the old IE.au3 include from a year back or so, it is working fine!
      When i use the new IE.au3 include came with the new installation that is currently available on autoitscript.com it isnt working (i get a result that says; 0).
      Let me show you.
       
      Working Example
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <IE_EmbeddedVersioning.au3> #include <IE_PreVersion.au3> ;Older Version Example() Func Example() ; Create a GUI with various controls. Local $hGUI = GUICreate("Example", 1000, 1000) Local $idOK = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 310, 370, 85, 25) Global $oIE_1 = _IECreateEmbedded() ; CREATE IE OBJECT(S) GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE_1, 355, 5, 600, 360) _IENavigate($oIE_1, "https://www.google.nl", 1) Local $CheckHTML_T = _IEBodyReadHTML($oIE_1) ; Display the GUI. GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI) MsgBox(48,"",$CheckHTML_T) ; Loop until the user exits. While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $idOK ExitLoop EndSwitch WEnd ; Delete the previous GUI and all controls. GUIDelete($hGUI) EndFunc ;==>Example

      The DOM allows to do anything with elements and their contents, but first we need to reach the corresponding DOM object, get it into a variable, and then we are able to modify it. *
      Well, this little tool (although it is not very nice aesthetically) allows you to get visually a "selector" usable to reference DOM objects.
      Once you have the "selector" of an element you can pass it to the javascript querySelector() function that will return a reference to that element.
      To use this tool you have to:
      1) open the web page you want to inspect into IE browser
      2) run this script (if it find more instances of IE running, it allows you to chose one)
      3) move the mouse over the browser. The "selector" of the element below the pointer is catched automatically while hovering. To copy the selector in the clipboard just right click on the element.
      As you can see, while hovering, the element pointed by the mouse is highlighted with a thin red dotted frame to allow you to better "take aim"
      when the selector is copied to the clipboard a little acoustic signal is emitted as a confirm, then you can paste it in your listing where you need it.
      I hope it can come in handy and save you time when you need to automate a site .... have fun (debugged on Sept. 30 2018)

      suppose we want automate the login to the AutoIt site with our username and password.
      I've already prepared a very simple "template" where are missing some important parts without which the script can't work. Missing parts are the references to the elements of the AutoIt web page that we have to manage by our script.
      well, here is where the tool I have just posted here above comes to our help.
      follow this steps:
      1) in IE open the AutoIt site at the forum page (https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/)
      2) run the above tool (select the IE instance and/or bring it to front if needed)
      3) when the script is "ready", move the mouse over the "Existing user? Sign In" string and right click the mouse button. Doing so the "selector" of that element is copied to the clipboard. Now we can paste it in our AutoLogIt.au3 script as value of the $sSignIn variable.
      4) now click on the "Existing user? Sign In"  to open the "Sig In" session from where we will copy selectors of each of the 2 input box Username and Password, in the same way as we have already done in step 3, and paste those selectors to the $sInputUserId and $sInputPasswd variables respectively.
      5) do the same for the "Sign In" Button and paste it's selector to the $sSignInButn variable
      6) of course also fill the $sMyUserId and $sMyPasswd variables with your data.
      That's It. Run the AutoLogIt script and it should Log you on automatically to the forum.
      AutoLogIt.au3
      #include <ie.au3> $sMyUserId = "" ; <-- your userid here $sMyPasswd = "" ; <-- your password here ; set selectors here $sSignIn = "" ; <-- SigIn element selector here $sInputUserId = "" ; <-- UserId input selector here $sInputPasswd = "" ; <-- Password input selector here $sSignInButn = "" ; <-- Sig In button selector here $oIE = _IECreate("https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/") ; here is how to use the QuerySelector javascript function $hDOM_Element = $oIE.document.QuerySelector($sSignIn) ; get the "sign in" link element ; perform a click action on the above element $hDOM_Element.click() ; or _IEAction($hDOM_Element, "click") as well ; fill the username input $hDOM_Element = $oIE.document.QuerySelector($sInputUserId) $hDOM_Element.value = $sMyUserId ; fill the password input $hDOM_Element = $oIE.document.QuerySelector($sInputPasswd) $hDOM_Element.value = $sMyPasswd ; .... or also using the dot notation directly .... $oIE.document.QuerySelector($sSignInButn).click() Sleep(5000) ; this should logout $sMenu = "body > div:nth-of-type(2) > header > div > ul > li:nth-of-type(6) > a:nth-of-type(2)" $oIE.document.QuerySelector($sMenu).click() $sLogOut = "body > ul > li:nth-of-type(9) > a" $oIE.document.QuerySelector($sLogOut).click()
