Website Auto login - Variable Must Be Of Type Object?

Recommended Posts

Oryx2046

Hello all,

First off, let me apologize if this is a dumb question. I've been digging through these forums all morning hoping that I could resolve this myself but I can't seem to figure it out. So for a work project I have a website I need to auto-login (via IE 8) and then navigate to a specific page to be displayed on a monitor.

The code I have thus far is as follows:

#include <IE.au3>

Local $oUser, $oPass, $oSubmit
Local $sUser = "myuser"
Local $sPass = "mspass"
Local $url = "http://10.10.10.10:8080/login/"
Local $oIE = _IECreate($url)

_IELoadWait($oIE)

$oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "input")
for $oInput in $oInputs
if $oInput.type = "text" And $oInput.name = "j_username" Then $oUser = $oInput
if $oInput.type = "password" And $oInput.name = "j_password" Then $oPass = $oInput
if $oInput.type = "submit" And $oInput.value = "Log In" Then $oSubmit = $oInput
if isObj($oUser) And isObj($oPass) And isObj($oSubmit) then exitloop
Next

$oUser.value = $sUser
$oPass.value = $sPass
_IEAction($oSubmit, "click")

_IELoadWait($oIE)

This code will successfully launch IE and navigate to the page I want. I went with the _IETagNameGetCollection because the "submit" button doesn't give a name or ID, so I couldn't use the _IEGetObjByName or ID. I did find a link to the IE Debug toolbar, and I have used that to verify that all of these fields/controls are of the correct type and that I'm using the correct names/values. I tried the AutoIt 1-2-3 examples, have watched youtube videos, tried some tutorials for IE from the forums, but I can't seem to get this working.

The specific problem I have when I try to run is:

C:\Documents and Settings\user\Desktop\test.au3 (19) : ==> Variable must be of type "Object".:

$oUser.value = $sUser

$oUser^ ERROR

It's my understanding this is because my variable isn't an object, but I can't understand why? I only started using AutoIt this morning, and I'm trying to get this script working in 4 hours, LOL (not my choice of deadline). Any assistance would be very appreciated, I just can't see where I'm going wrong here. :(

It's possible that the variable is not being set. Maybe durring the loop, it's never defined.

Do some error handling with IsObj()

You can also put this line at the top, and then the function for com-error handling (more info on failure)

$oErrorHandler = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error", "_ErrFunc")

Func _ErrFunc($oError) ; Com error handling
; Do anything here.
ConsoleWrite("err.number is: " & @TAB & $oError.number & @CRLF & _
         "err.windescription:" & @TAB & $oError.windescription & @CRLF & _
         "err.description is: " & @TAB & $oError.description & @CRLF & _
         "err.source is: " & @TAB & $oError.source & @CRLF & _
         "err.helpfile is: " & @TAB & $oError.helpfile & @CRLF & _
         "err.helpcontext is: " & @TAB & $oError.helpcontext & @CRLF & _
         "err.lastdllerror is: " & @TAB & $oError.lastdllerror & @CRLF & _
         "err.scriptline is: " & @TAB & $oError.scriptline & @CRLF & _
         "err.retcode is: " & @TAB & $oError.retcode & @CRLF & @CRLF)
EndFunc ;==>_ErrFunc

I'd suggesting adding a debug line to your loop to see if you are even working on the set of objects you think you are...

ConsoleWrite(_IEPropertyGet($oInput, "outerhtml")) & @CRLF)

Hi Dale, thanks for the response! I tried adding that in at the top of the loop so I'd see it for each iteration, but it doesn't seem to be outputting to my console window. So then I tried just ConsoleWrite("1") inside of the loop and still got no output. So from that I'm guessing it must never enter the loop, which must mean there are no items in the collection?

I am not sure how that's possible, because in the IE Debug toolbar I can see all these tagged as input:

I'm not very familiar with website/webpage design, but is there something in your knowledge that I might look for?

Thank you again!!!

Hey guys, so it looks like it was due to having a frame with a form inside of it. So basically I had to get the frame, then get the form, then get the collection of controls on the form. Once I did that, it's now working and auto-logging in just fine! Thanks for the pointers! :)

Here's what I have that's working:

#include <IE.au3>

Local $oUser, $oPass, $oSubmit
Local $sUser = "myuser"
Local $sPass = "mypass"
Local $url = "http://10.10.10.10:8080/login/"
Local $oIE = _IECreate($url)

_IELoadWait($oIE)

$oFrame = _IEFrameGetCollection($oIE, 0)
$oForm = _IEFormGetCollection($oFrame, 0)

$oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oForm, "input")
for $oInput in $oInputs
if $oInput.type = "text" And $oInput.name = "j_username" Then $oUser = $oInput
if $oInput.type = "password" And $oInput.name = "j_password" Then $oPass = $oInput
if $oInput.type = "submit" And $oInput.value = "Log In" Then $oSubmit = $oInput
if isObj($oUser) And isObj($oPass) And isObj($oSubmit) then exitloop
Next

$oUser.value = $sUser
$oPass.value = $sPass
_IEAction($oSubmit, "click")

_IELoadWait($oIE)

Blue_Drache,

Correct. But this is not a dialog - looks like a normal page as far as I can see. ;)

And if it helps, I own the webserver I'm logging into, so I'm not really bypassing so much as tailoring the application for a specific use. :)

Oryx2046,

That makes no difference at all as the required code would be generic and so available for others to use on other sites. ;)
