Button Setting

Recommended Posts


Hi everybody, I just started with autoit, and it's cool, but I'm thoroughly confused as well.

I need to automate some logins and website actions. Currently I can't get it to login to Tumblr.

Here's what I have.


Call ("signIn")

Func signIn ()
Global $oIE = _IECreate ("https://www.tumblr.com/login")

Local $username = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE,"user[email]")
Local $password = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE,"user[password]")
Local $login = _IETagNameGetCollection ($oIE,"Log in")

_IEFormElementSetValue ($username,"myemail")
_IEFormElementSetValue ($password,"mypassword")

_IEImgClick ($oIE,"Log in", "name")


So here's the problem. The $username & $password were simple b/c they're objects with names. No problem there. However, the "Log in" button has no "id" or "name." Its code looks like this: <span class="login_btn">Log in</span>

This is how the whole "button class" looks:

<button class="chrome big on_dark signup_forms_submit touchy blue" id="signup_forms_submit">

<span class="account_btn">Start</span>

<span class="birthday_btn">Next</span>

<span class="captcha_btn"><span><b>Almost</b> <b>Done!</b></span></span>

<span class="login_btn">Log in</span>


I couldn't get _IEGetObjById for "signup_forms_submit" btw.

This is driving me nuts.

Please advise.
