Get value in a similar way to set value?

Recommended Posts


Hi i wrote this code to set values in a form field (IE) to search for numbers and was wondering if i can do the reverse as easy, instead of setting the value i want to retrieve an existing value into an variable for later use?

Any ideas would be much appreciated

Sample code for setting the value:

#include <IE.au3>
Local $oIE = _IEAttach("Some Site")
WinActivate("Some Site")
;MsgBox(0, "The URL", _IEPropertyGet($oIE, "locationurl"))
$oIE.document.all.data.contentWindow.document.forms.CustomerSearchForm.SEARCH_ORGNO.value = "1234567890"
_IELoadWait ($oIE)

Thanx in advance :ILA2:

Nevermind, it was easier then i thought :) (embarrassing)

$value = $oIE.document.all.data.contentwindow.document.forms.CustomerSearchForm.SEARCH_ORGNO.value

      Hello all,
      I'm trying to create a webscrape script using AutoIt.  A non-profit I'm involved with is using GroupSpaces.com and there is no notification to the group when someone posts a new topic to the forum.  I'm including IE.au3

      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
      #include <Array.au3>
      #include <String.au3>
      ; Open Groupspaces.com
      Global $oIE = _IECreate ("http://www.groupspaces.com")
      ;Grab all the links on the Forum page
      Global $oLinksCategoryPage = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE)
      For $oLink In $oLinksCategoryPage
          Local $oLinkHRef = $oLink.href
          If StringInStr($oLinkHRef,"forum_id") Then
              ;This is a category. Click into it.
              ;Back out to Category List

      I have a NDIS based Internet sharing device. I got info about my balance inquiry by clicking a button, it's sending ussd *101# to my provider. This was ok in past but no i have changed provider, all other functions are ok, but new provider uses *100# as valid ussd for geting balance inquiry. So i used 
      #include <IE.au3> $oIE=_IECreate('') $sHTML=_IEDocReadHTML($oIE) $sHTML=StringReplace($sHTML,'101#','100#') _IEDocWriteHTML($oIE,$sHTML) to get it. But with this script i can't get the info. It replaces correct in 
      <div id="fun_balanceInquiry" style="display: block;"> <div class="ussd_extend_border"><p><label id="balance_inquiry_description0">Auf Guthaben drücken, um Informationen über Ihr Guthaben zu erhalten.</label></p> <table width="500" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tbody><tr><td height="40" class="cls_ussd_label_BalanceInquiry_action"> <label id="balance_inquiry_result0"></label></td> <td class="align_right" id="balance_inquiry_action0"><span class="button_wrapper" id="#BalanceInquiry0" onclick="javascript:ussd_sendCommand('BalanceInquiry0','*101#','CodeType', 'undefined');return false;"><span class="button_left"><span class="button_right"><span class="button_center">Guthaben</span></span></span></span></td> </tr></tbody></table></div></div> <div id="fun_charge" style="display: none;"> </div> but it seems this included script:
      <script src="../js/ussd.js" type="text/javascript"></script> is called. In DOM Explorer i see:
      function onclick(event) { javascript:ussd_sendCommand('BalanceInquiry0','*101#','CodeType', 'undefined');return false; } but i can't write a changed ussd.js back to my internet stick.
      So my question is how can i change htmlcode in a way calling function onclick with new ussd command?

      Hello, I believe I have come across a bug in the _IE library. I am trying to make a script that will automatically fill's in data for a restore script for a WP site. It's called Importbuddy by IThemes and it is one of the best, if not the best, backup restore plugins for WordPress. The problem that I am having is once it is on the first step of the script, filling in the password and clicking next, it redirects me to the index.php file and when I keep trying to return to the importbuddy.php file, it keeps redirecting back to the index file. Here is the code I am using, 
      _$o = _IECreate() _IENavigate($o, [url of ImportBuddy]) _IELoadWait($o, 2000) $step0 = _IEGetObjByName($o, "password");Password feild _IEFormElementSetValue($step0, "pass");Password of Importbuddy $Step0submit = _IEGetObjByName($o, "submit") _IEAction($Step0submit, "click") _IELoadWait($o, 2000) ;Goes to index.html, not the next step of the importbuddy Here is a link to the importbuddy.php file,   http://bit.ly/1H9YZNb
      Please only use this file for testing, it is part of a commercial product by IThemes 

      To keep this simple, just install a program like XAMPP to view the file. Also, the password is "pass"

      Does anyone have any ideas why this isn't working? 

      As always, Thanks for your help
