Help with IE form fill

Recommended Posts

horstj

Hi All,

I am having a bit of trouble filling in some input boxes on a certain website. I have tried all kinds of different iterations of the following script, but can't get anything to work.

#include <IE.au3>
Run("C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe -new http://acc.rollernet.us/","")
$RollerHwnd = WinWaitActive("[TITLE:Roller Network Control Center - Windows Internet Explorer; CLASS:IEFrame]")
$rollerIE = _IEAttach($RollerHwnd,"HWND")
$rollerForm = _IEFormGetCollection($rollerIE)
;Logs into the Rollernet admin portal
$roller_username = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($rollerForm,"username")
$roller_password = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($rollerForm,"password")
_IEFormElementSetValue($roller_username,"Username")
_IEFormElementSetValue($roller_password,"Password")

I have used a variation of this exact code for another website without any problems. Does anyone see what I am missing? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You need to add some error checking to your code! Every _IE* function sets @error if there was a problem.

Thanks water. I didn't do any error checking with @error, but here is the output when I run the script:

IE.au3 V2.4-0 Error from function _IEPropertyGet, $_IEStatus_InvalidObjectType

--> IE.au3 V2.4-0 Error from function _IEFormElementGetObjByName, $_IEStatus_InvalidObjectType

--> IE.au3 V2.4-0 Error from function _IEFormElementGetObjByName, $_IEStatus_InvalidObjectType

--> IE.au3 V2.4-0 Error from function _IEFormElementSetValue, $_IEStatus_InvalidDataType

--> IE.au3 V2.4-0 Error from function _IEFormElementSetValue, $_IEStatus_InvalidDataType

From all of my testing, it seems that the problem exists around the _IEFormGetCollection function. Is that the best way to get the password and username input fields? They are in an unamed form which makes things interesting as well.

Thanks DedekPredek. Did you test that out on your machine at all? I had tried that before and it actually gives me the same errors as my previous post, but with

--> IE.au3 V2.4-0 Warning from function _IEFormGetCollection, $_IEStatus_NoMatch

added. Any other suggestions?

horstj,

Try it with WinWait and _IELoadWait, it works for me

#include <IE.au3>
Run("C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe -new https://acc.rollernet.us/","")
$RollerHwnd = WinWait("Roller Network Control Center - Windows Internet Explorer","")
$rollerIE = _IEAttach($RollerHwnd,"HWND")
_IELoadWait($rollerIE)

Dedek, Sorry for my ignorance here, but would my code now look like this

#include <IE.au3>
Run("C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe -new https://acc.rollernet.us/","")
$RollerHwnd = WinWait("Roller Network Control Center - Windows Internet Explorer","")
$rollerIE = _IEAttach($RollerHwnd,"HWND")
_IELoadWait($rollerIE)
$rollerForm = _IEFormGetCollection($rollerIE)
;Logs into the Rollernet admin portal
$roller_username = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($rollerForm,"username")
$roller_password = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($rollerForm,"password")
_IEFormElementSetValue($roller_username,"Username")
_IEFormElementSetValue($roller_password,"Password")

I still cannot get it to fill in the username and password fields.

As I said in post #2 you need to add some error checking. Which of the functions you call sets @error?

As you can see from the help file:

_IEAttach: 7 ($_IEStatus_NoMatch) = No Match ==> The IE instance you try to attach to couldn't be found

_IELoadWait: 3 ($_IEStatus_InvalidDataType) = Invalid Data Type ==> Error caused by unsuccessfull _IEAttach

      Hello Experts,
      I am working on custom application details of which I am unable to share.
      But here is statement of my problem, I have two IE windows one window with Title "Parent " and other with "TableEdit", but for some reason when I get WinList they are shown as 2 processes each. ( see attached image)
      Since my most important motive is to modify table data in 'TableEdit' I try to access the table in it
      My code snippet is 
      ***********************************************************************************************
      $searchString = "TableEdit"
      Local $aList = WinList("[REGEXPTITLE:(?i)(.*Internet Explorer.*)]")
      _ArrayDisplay($aList)
      For $i = 1 To $aList[0][0]
          If $aList[$i][0] <> "" And BitAND(WinGetState($aList[$i][1]), 2) Then
              ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Title: " & $aList[$i][0] & @CRLF & "Handle: " & $aList[$i][1])
              If 0 <> StringInStr($aList[$i][0],"TableEdit") Then
                  $objEditIE = _IEAttach ($aList[$i][1])
                  ExitLoop
              EndIf
          EndIf
      Next
      WinActivate($objEditIE)
      $oPageContentListFrame = _IEFrameGetObjByName($objEditIE, "iframe_1")
      $iNumFrames = @extended
      MsgBox(0,"Got pagecontent",@error) ; returns 3, indicating invalid data type
      MsgBox(0,"Number of Frame",$iNumFrames) ; returns 1, expected value is 1 
      ***********************************************************************************************
      and If I do code as below the return value is different
      $searchString = "TableEdit"
       $objEditIE = _IEAttach ($searchString, "title")
      WinActivate($objEditIE)
      $oPageContentListFrame = _IEFrameGetObjByName($objEditIE, "iframe_1")
      $iNumFrames = @extended
      MsgBox(0,"Got pagecontent",@error) ; returns 0
      MsgBox(0,"Number of Frame",$iNumFrames) ; returns 0. expected value is 1
      ***********************************************************************************************
      What is wrong with my code? 
      Why do I see two process each for IE for each window?

      I was wondering how I read data inside of a iframe. I would like to be able to click something inside a iframe. However, I can't even find the tag. 
      The id and name change all the time so I can't use those. 
      The code highlighted in blue is what I am trying to click. (second picture)
      Here is what I have tried.
      $target = "" $tags = $oIE.document.GetElementsByTagName("div") For $tag in $tags $class_value = $tag.GetAttribute("class") If string($class_value) = "s_92 altstyle s_93 s_94" Then $target = $tag ConsoleWrite("Tag Found " & $target.outerText&@CRLF) ExitLoop EndIf Next

      WinActivate("MEDITECH - Internet Explorer") Sleep (500) $oIE = _IEAttach("MEDITECH") $oDiv1 = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "sysmenu-searchbarbutton") _IEAction($oDiv1, "click") I am just trying to click the little magnifying glass, next to the gear button with no luck. I was hoping someone might have an idea why this is not working?

      I am trying to type a name in patient summary search box. How should I go about doing this. I am clearly not doing it right. (Attached Picture of HTML code.)
      This is what I have tried. I assume this is not working because it is not a form? 
      WinActivate("MEDITECH - Internet Explorer")       Sleep (500)    $oIE = _IEAttach("MEDITECH")    $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, "systemMenu")    $oText = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "sysmenu-searchbarinput") _IEFormElementSetValue($oText, "Hey! This works!")

      Just want to report a warning I get when using IE udf and running from F5 in scite

      -> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Warning from function internal function __IEIsObjType, Cannot register internal error handler, cannot trap COM errors (Use _IEErrorHandlerRegister() to register a user error handler)
      When I look at IE.au3 I see a comment that this function has been removed as there are no more fatal errors.
