Cannot fill out textarea on web page!

9 posts in this topic

Hi all!

I am a newbie in autoit and i am not good at English. I have a problem with filling out a text into textarea. this is code of the textare:

<label>Description<span class="mandatory"> *</span></label>

<textarea name="description" cols="80" rows="12" id="description" ></textarea>

<script type="text/javascript">

//<![CDATA[

$(document).ready(function() {

$(document).ready(function () {

var myNicEditor = new nicEditor({iconsPath : 'libs/nicEdit/nicEditorIcons.gif', buttonList : ['bold','italic','underline', 'left', 'center','right', 'justify', 'ul', 'ol', 'indent', 'outdent', 'forecolor', 'bgcolor', 'hr','link','unlink', 'fontSize', 'fontFormat'], countTextLeft: 0, count_input: 'count'}).panelInstance('description');});

});

//]]>

</script>

I used the commands :

"_IEFormElementGetObjByName" to get textarea object and

"_IEFormElementSetValue" to set value to this object but not works

The error show in console is :Error from function _IEFormElementSetValue, $_IEStatus_InvalidDataType

Hi and Welcome :bye:

Can you please post your actual AutoIt code? Be sure you wrap it in code tags, it's the "<>" icon in the toolbar.

Thanks, mrMichell! This is my code:

$oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE,"newad")
$textarea = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "descripstion")
_IEFormElementSetValue($textarea, "test test")

If tag textarea without script about nicEditor, my code works well!

This is full code of the web page

<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://www.classifiedsgiant.com/libs/jQuery/plugins/fancybox/jquery.fancybox-1.3.4.min.css" type="text/css" media="screen" /><form name="newad" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" action="newad.php?step=3">

<div class="form_content">
<input type="hidden" name="category" value="254"/>
<input type="hidden" name="package" value="1"/>
<input type="hidden" name="usr_pkg" value="16023124"/>
<h2>Ad Description</h2>

<!-- TITLE -->

<label>Title<span class="mandatory"> *</span></label>
<input type="text" name="title" id="title" size="60" value=""
  onkeydown="CountTitleLeft(document.newad.title,150);" onkeyup="CountTitleLeft(document.newad.title,150);"
onpaste="CountTitleLeft(document.newad.title, 150);"/>
<!-- DESCRIPTION -->
<label>Description<span class="mandatory"> *</span></label>
<textarea name="description" cols="80" rows="12" id="description" ></textarea>


<h2>Ad Information</h2>


<script type="text/javascript">
//<![CDATA[

$(document).ready(function() {


$(document).ready(function () {
var myNicEditor = new nicEditor({iconsPath : 'libs/nicEdit/nicEditorIcons.gif', buttonList : ['bold','italic','underline', 'left', 'center', 'right', 'justify', 'ul', 'ol', 'indent', 'outdent', 'forecolor', 'bgcolor', 'hr','link','unlink', 'fontSize', 'fontFormat'], countTextLeft: 0, count_input: 'count'}).panelInstance('description');
});

});
//]]>
</script>

And this is my code autoit

$logForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE,"newad")
$titleAd = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($logForm, "title")
$desciptAd = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($logForm,"description")
_IEFormElementSetValue($titleAd,"this is title")
_IEFormElementSetValue($descriptAd, "this is description")

And the error from console is: Error from function _IEFormElementSetValue, $_IEStatus_InvalidDataType

Thanks!

On which one do you get the error - _IEFormElementSetValue($titleAd,"this is title") or _IEFormElementSetValue($descriptAd, "this is description") ?

Could you please replace it with :

ConsoleWrite($desciptAd.id&".............."&$desciptAd.Innerhtml&@CRLF)

And post what you get in the console from it.

think that there isn't no need for it

he corrected his problem probably and told you 'Thanks Juvigy!' newer the less if he did not corrected it solution is to change variable to correct variable name

$desciptAd

instead

$descriptAd

newer the less this works just fine for me

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IECreate('somefile.html')
$oForm  = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE,"newad")
$titleAd = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "title")
$desciptAd = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm,"description")
_IEFormElementSetValue($titleAd,"this is title")
_IEFormElementSetValue($desciptAd, "this is description")

There are those that believe that the perfect heist lies in the preparation.
Some say that it’s all in the timing, seizing the right opportunity. Others even say it’s the ability to leave no trace behind, be a ghost.
