IE find a dynmic link

Recommended Posts

So I have 2 links on a webpage, the txt can be anything, the href changes too but not the domain of link. I found that this.....

For $x = 0 To 164
Local $oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "a", $x)
If StringInStr($oInputs.id, "ctl00_ctl00_ctl00_ctl00_ContentMain_ContentMain_ContentMain_ContentMain_TabContainer1_DetailsTab_DetailsController1_ctl00_ParcelSummary1_TitleSection") > 0 Then $ParcelID = $oInputs.href
Next

Is a crude way to find a link but it adds unnecessary seconds to the script. Is there a better way to find find these guys on the webpage? I mean a way to do with without looping through every possible link.

I would put the source of page but its long. Here is a link to an example.

The HREF of the link is the same as the URL in the address bar.

Addressbar: http://www.ocpafl.org/Searches/ParcelSearch.aspx/PID/312214078800170

Href-Link in the page: href="/Searches/ParcelSearch.aspx/PID/312214078800170"

If you click on the link, the same page shows again.

Why not take the addressbar data?

$ParcelID = _IEPropertyGet($oIE,"locationurl")

it appears to be a fairly simple webpage. could you get by with clicking the link by index?

it appears to be 18

_IELinkClickByIndex($oie,18)

The normal address is http://www.ocpafl.org/Searches/ParcelSearch.aspx it happed to change to the right link because I was testing it. Assume the address bar will be http://www.ocpafl.org/Searches/ParcelSearch.aspx. Any other solutions?

@tlman12

The website it turns out is kind of dynamic. A certain amount of links will appear under conditions I cant anticipate so a parse by index wont really work unless I look at every link and filter to what I am looking for but that takes extra time.

Ah! Never thought about doing it that way, Thanks!

      Is there probably a way to click ie popup button and hide or invisible popup button in the same time?
      I try to use WinSetState @SW_hide ,
      the result is ie crashing or no response because button hide and the next click command won't work...
      $oForm=_IEFormGetObjByName($oIE,"form1") $obutton=_IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm,"btn_OK") $hWnd = _IEPropertyGet($oIE, "hwnd") _IEAction($obutton,"focus") ControlSend($hWnd, "", "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server; INSTANCE:1]", "{Enter}") WinWait("", "確定存檔嗎?") WinSetState("","確定存檔嗎?",@SW_Hide) ControlClick("", "確定存檔嗎?", "[CLASS:Button; TEXT:確定; Instance:1;]")

      Hey there!
      I am having a problem with clicking a button in IE. As you can see in the code, there would be a class name to click it, but since this button exists several times with exactly the same code, I can only use the "Noch nicht veröffentlicht" to separate it from the others. But this part is just pure text without any classification. 
      "<div class="checkmark" data-v-1e5b1f70=""><svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" class="icon" viewBox="0 0 16 16" data-v-1e5b1f70=""><circle cx="8" cy="8" r="8" data-v-1e5b1f70="" /></svg></div>Noch nicht veröffentlicht"
      I was trying to click it with:
      #include <IE.au3> local $oNNVs = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE2) For $oNNV in $oNNVs If String($oNNV.innertext) = "Noch nicht veröffentlicht" Then _IEAction($oNNV, "click") EndIf Next and:
      $inputs = $oIE2.document.getElementsByTagName("div") For $input In $inputs If $input.innertext == "Noch nicht veröffentlicht" then $input.click() EndIf Next But nothing seems to work. Thanks for the help!

      Hello Everyone,
      I'm looking for a way to use an already open Internet Explorer (IE) window (if one is up and running) and then navigate to a new URL in a new IE tab.
      I thought that _IECreate would easily meet my needs. However, when I use the following script:
      #include <IE.au3> Local $oIE = _IECreate("https://" & $Server & ":8444/", 1, 1, 0, 1) ...with one or more open IE windows, it still opens yet a new IE window.
      Are there any other ideas for how to reliably use an already open IE windows and then how to open a new tab in IE to navigate to a new URL?
      Regards,
      TX Techie

      Hi All,
      I've tried to create a script to browse to a web page in IE, but it only works for some sites, I've tried to simplify the script as much as possible, hoping you can point me in the right direction - thanks.
      This one going to Google does work:
      #include <IE.au3> $oIE = _IECreate("https://www.google.com.au/", 0, 1, 1) _IELoadWait($oIE) _IEQuit($oIE) But this one going to OneDrive opens the IE page, but fails immediately returning the errors, and the IE window is not closed:
      --> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Error from function _IELoadWait, $_IESTATUS_ClientDisconnected (-2147023174, Browser has been deleted prior to operation.)
      --> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Error from function _IELoadWait, $_IESTATUS_InvalidObjectType ()
      --> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Error from function _IEQuit, $_IESTATUS_InvalidObjectType
      #include <IE.au3> $oIE = _IECreate("https://abccorp-my.sharepoint.com/", 0, 1, 1) _IELoadWait($oIE) _IEQuit($oIE) Even if I put a sleep timer in for 10 seconds after the _IECreate it still doesn't work
      Thanks all!

      On that page is a login form requiring username, password and then the clicking of the button (or pressing enter but I'm not a fan of using Send)
      Here's the section of code from the page that specifically deals with the form...
      <form> <div class="error-message-login" data-test="error-message"></div> <label> <span>User email</span> <div class="ui input"> <input id="email" type="text" placeholder="Your email"> </div> </label> <label> <span>Password</span> <div class="ui input"> <input id="password" type="password" placeholder="Password"> </div> </label> <button class="ui primary button" role="button" data-test="login">Login</button> <p> <a class="forgot-your-password" href="https://www.rightmove.co.uk/forgottenPasswordForm.html">Forgot your password?</a> </p> </form> Specifically the <button class...></button> is causing me problems as I can't find a way to click it. The 'User email' and 'Password' objects have an 'id' so I can reference these in the AutoIT code and interact with them and the button also previously had the id of 'login' but I guess in a change to this page that was altered.
      Oddly, if I get the code to show the instance of IE that is created and manually click Login or press Enter the page gives me an error saying 'Please enter your email address' even though it is there. I have to manually go into each field and make a change i.e. adding a character to the end of each field then deleting it before it will let me in by either clicking Login or pressing enter. So maybe there's so code elsewhere on the page that knows the fields haven't been physically typed in?
      Any help on this would be much appreciated.
