IE find a dynmic link

7 posts in this topic

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!

      For the below form, I am able to automate using below code for textboxes.

      #include <IE.au3> Local $oIE = _IEAttach("http://localhost:18170/MartAdmin/", "url") _IELoadWait($oIE) $Search = _IEGetObjById($oIE,"x-auto-16-input") _IEPropertySet($Search, 'innerText','Uday KIran') $Search = _IEGetObjById($oIE,"x-auto-18-input") _IEPropertySet($Search, 'innerText','Uday KIran') But for the Login button, there is no id or name.
      The html code when I click on Inspect element in browser, shown below.
      <button tabindex="0" class="x-btn-text" style="width: 64px; position: relative;" type="button">Log In</button> Please let me know how to click this.?

      I am trying to script the opening of multiple tabs in IE with each tab having a separate login/password. I have been able to make a successful script that will open 3 separate IE sessions with the correct webpage and login or a script that will open 3 tabs in one session (which I want) but will not login. I have tried _IECreate, IEAttach etc. This is the script I am currently using . 
      #include <IE.au3> Const $navOpenInNewTab = 0x0800 Dim $oIE = _IECreate('http://asag.xxxxxxx.com/AAAA/index.htm') ;$o_IE.Navigate2('http://asag.xxxxxxx.com/apps/yyyyyyy/LogInSAG/login.asp', $navOpenInNewTab) ;$o_IE.Navigate2('http://asag.xxxxxxx.com/apps/yyyyyyy/LogInSAG/login.asp', $navOpenInNewTab) Call ("YYYYYYYSignIn") Func YYYYYYYSignIn () Local $username = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE,"uname") Local $password = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE,"pword") $oIE.Navigate2('http://asag.xxxxxxx.com/apps/xxxxxxx/LogInSAG/login.asp',2048) _IEFormElementSetValue ($username, "xxxxxxx") _IEFormElementSetValue ($password, "xxxxxxx") Send('{Enter}') EndFunc Call ("xxxxxxxSignIn") Func xxxxxxxSignIn () __IENavigate($oIE, "https://soa1gui.xxxxxxx.biz/gateway/NFServlet;jsessionid=1E3B8F6520DE0A1EC914A8ABB7E86341?NFH_MessageId=&NFH_Page=%2fpages%2fsearch%2fsearch.jsp", 1, 0x800) Local $domain = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE,"NF_CustomerID") Local $User_Name = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE,"NF_UserName") Local $Password = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE,"NF_Password") _IEFormElementSetValue ($domain, xxxxxxx") _IEFormElementSetValue ($User_Name, "xxxxxxx") _IEFormElementSetValue ($Password, "xxxxxxx") ;Send('{Enter}') EndFunc

      Internet Explorer 11, AutoIt 3.3.14.2
      I want to download many files which are published with hyperlink on a web page. I use AutoIt and when there is a few files, it works even if It's on a website with secured links.
      I have a script to download link items with the object method (I gave a partial sample), but when the number of link exceed the web page, there is not an auto scroll, then the links which are not on displayed without scroll are not downloaded.
      Thank you
      From France

      I am not sure on how to grab the innertext I want. Is there a way I can just grab the second line, or is there a better way to do it all together? 
      #include <IE.au3> $oIE = _IEAttach("Form Details") $oDiv = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "Col3") ;Phone MsgBox (0,"Oops",$oDiv.outertext) When I use this code I get
