How to deal with IE window for upload a file(input type="file")

Recommended Posts

Hi, All

There's a element in the web:

<input id="fileInput_iPhoneandiPodtouchScreenshots" type="file" name="filedata" class="lcUploadFile" style="">

first, I use the below script, the result is paused in line 2 and the script can't continue:

Local $oSubmit = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "fileInput_iPhoneandiPodtouchScreenshots")
_IEAction($oSubmit, "click")
Local $sWindowTitle = "File Upload"
WinWaitActive($sWindowTitle)
If WinActive($sWindowTitle,"") Then
ControlSetText($sWindowTitle,"","Edit1","D:\Autoit\iPhone and iPod touch Screenshots\screenshot5.jpg")
ControlClick($sWindowTitle,"","Button1")
EndIf

so, I tried another way. I made an Autoit EXE named "PopUpHandler.exe" with the script:

Local $sWindowTitle = "File Upload"
WinWaitActive($sWindowTitle)
If WinActive($sWindowTitle,"") Then
ControlSetText($sWindowTitle,"","Edit1","D:\Autoit\iPhone and iPod touch Screenshots\screenshot5.jpg")
ControlClick($sWindowTitle,"","Button1")
EndIf

it can worked well when i run it directly. But if I call it in the main script, it doesn't work.

;ShellExecute("PopUpHandler.exe", $sFile, @ScriptDir, "open", @SW_HIDE) ;doesn't work too.
Run("PopUpHandler.exe",@ScriptDir,@SW_HIDE,$STDOUT_CHILD)
Local $oSubmit = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "fileInput_iPhoneandiPodtouchScreenshots")
_IEAction($oSubmit, "click")

The PopUpHandler.exe has done its work, but the web($oIE) report a error. You can check it in the attach.

so, my questions is:

1. Why PopUpHandler.exe can work when run it directly, but can't work in another script?

2. Do we have another mothed to deal with this input type="file"?

Thanks.

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
