Help with IE form fill

11 posts in this topic

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

      Hi all,
       
      Anyone have any idea how to close all open tabs except a specific one I manually open.  Assuming I don't know what is open in all the tabs except just the one I want to keep open.
       
      I didn't want to use sendkeys and I was trying to use the following code to list the title (or url) of the 3 open tabs and  after I got that part working I would just close the other 2. This sample only displays the title of the first open tab
      #include <IE.au3> Const $ie_new_in_tab = 0x0800 $oIE = _IECreate("https://www.autoitscript.com") __IENavigate($oIE, "https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/", 1, $ie_new_in_tab) ;(obj,url,wait,param) __IENavigate($oIE, "https://www.google.com/", 1, $ie_new_in_tab) ;(obj,url,wait,param) Local $aIE[1] $aIE[0] = 0 Local $i = 1, $oIE While 1     $oIE = _IEAttach("", "instance", $i)     If @error = $_IEStatus_NoMatch Then ExitLoop     ConsoleWrite(_IEPropertyGet($oIE, "title") & @CRLF)     ReDim $aIE[$i + 1]     $aIE[$i] = $oIE ;each item holds object     $aIE[0] = $i ;first item holds count     $i += 1 WEnd MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Browsers Found", "Number of browser instances in the array: " & $aIE[0]) ; This doesn't return the list of tabs in the console just the first tab  
      Thanks for any and all help

      Local $sMyString = "Please Select" ;############ ENTER ############# Local $oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE) For $oLink In $oLinks Local $sLinkText = _IEPropertyGet($oLink, "innerText") If StringInStr($sLinkText, $sMyString) Then _IEAction($oLink, "click") ExitLoop EndIf Next

      Hello everyone,
      I'm working on a task where, a PDF file is opened (in IE browser) when I click a link in a website.
      I have to read the first page of the PDF to find particular strings. Can you please share some ideas?

      Hey,
      i would like to set a value into an INPUT field.
      Checked the _IEFormElementSetValue function but that does require _IEFormGetObjByName and this is where the problem comes in. The input field I want to write to is not a part of a form tag. It is part of a table.
      <input type="text" class="w2" id="nabidka_vozidel_formular_tach_od" name="nabidka_vozidel_formular_tach_od" onchange="GLOBAL.pocetInzerceNZ(&quot;nabidka_vozidel_formular&quot;,&quot;tach_od&quot;,&quot;&quot;);" autocomplete="off"> I tried this but that didn't work:
      $oDownloadSamples = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "nabidka_vozidel_formular_tach_od") _IEFormElementSetValue($oDownloadSamples, "123") If you want to try the site I'm working with is https://www.tipcars.cz/. There is a menu on the top left hand side and if you click the "vyhledat" button the input fields will show up.
      Thanks

      I am now able to populate the dropdown menus at https://www.tipcars.com/.
      The dropdowns are dynamic and do not have a Text value, only ids.
      Is there a way to get all the available options from a dropdown?
      $url = "https://www.tipcars.com/" $oIE = _IECreate($url) _IELoadWait($oIE) $oDownloadSamples = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "homepage_vyhl_frm_vozidlo") _IEFormElementOptionSelect($oDownloadSamples, "C") Above code, populates ID 'C' into the 'druh' dropdown, which results in selecting 'užitkové'. 
      Is there a way so I can grab all of the options from the dropdown menu? I could easily grab all the IDs but I am afraid they will change in the future so I would much rather match the text titles and assign the option IDs grabbed from site.
      This is what the options are according to Chrome:
      <select class="w1"id="homepage_vyhl_frm_vozidlo"name="homepage_vyhl_frm_vozidlo"onchange="try{NABIDKA_VOZIDEL_FORMULAR.naplnSelectZnacka('homepage_vyhl_frm');GLOBAL.pocetInzerceHZ('homepage_vyhl_frm','vozidlo');}catch(ex){odeslatJsChybu('formHOMEPAGE onChange 1: ' + ex.message, 'formHomePage onChange 1', -1);}"> <option value="A" style="color: black;">osobní a terénní (56 334)</option> <option value="C" style="color: black;">užitkové (4 333)</option> <option value="D" style="color: black;">nákladní (3 742)</option> <option value="E" style="color: black;">autobusy (56)</option> <option value="F" style="color: black;">obytné (373)</option> <option value="G" style="color: black;">přívěsy (1 179)</option> <option value="J" style="color: black;">motorky (780)</option> <option value="S" style="color: black;">pracovní stroje (605)</option> <option value="L" style="color: black;">ostatní (235)</option></select> Also, this cannot be grabbed by _INetGetSource.
      Thanks
