Loop at current object variable's position

Recommended Posts

An IE link collection $oLinks is being looped by a $oLink with a for-in loop. An if statement is used such that when the $oLink.href matches a string reg. exp., it will do a set of statements. The set of statements is this:

$a = 1
do
$matchpic = StringRegExp($oLink + $a.href, '(http://t2.imgchili.com/)(\d+)(\/)(\d+)(_)')
$a += 1
until $matchpic = 1

But the error is that $a is not an object variable.

After a match has been found, this $oLink is _paused_ at the current position inside this collection (I believe). How do I loop at the current $oLink?

You are setting $a = 1 right before the do while loop. So, it is an normal variable (integer).

Second, are you sure to use the $oLink "plus" ... not & ?

I need to declare the $a or else I'll get an error if I just leave the $a += 1 by itself.

Well I assume $oLink is some value. So $oLink + $a will be another value. Of course that wouldn't work so I need a way to loop through this current $oLink.

Without knowing how you come up with $oLink, we can't really help you.

Here is an example of using the IE.au3 UDF:

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IECreate("yoururl")
_IELoadWait($oIE)
$oColLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE)
For $oLink In $oColLinks
 If StringRegExp($oLink.href, '(http://t2.imgchili.com/)(\d+)(\/)(\d+)(_)', 0) Then
  ; whatever you want to do
 EndIf
Next

For those of you who are confused, here's the part I'm talking about:

For $curr_page = $max_page To 1 Step -1
Local $oIE = _IECreate($page & $curr_page)
Local $oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE)
Local $iNumLinks = @extended ;extends to the maximum value of links in $oLinks
$linkCol = _ExcelBookNew(1)
WinSetState($linkCol, "", @SW_SHOWMINIMIZED)

$lkcnt = 1 ;counts links

_ExcelWriteCell($linkCol, "@@@@@@@@@@ " & $page & $curr_page & " @@@@@@@@@@", $row, 1)

For $oLink In $oLinks ;"for a sub-object in the object"
$isMatched = StringRegExp($oLink.href, '(http://examplelink.com/articles/)(\d+)(\/)')
If $isMatched = 1 Then

_ExcelWriteCell($linkCol, $oLink.href, $lkcnt + 1, 2) ;writes link since row 2, and constantly on col 2

$a = 1
do
$matchpic = StringRegExp($oLink + $a.href, '(http://t2.imgchili.com/)(\d+)(\/)(\d+)(_)')
$a += 1
until $matchpic = 1
_ExcelWriteCell($linkCol, $oLink.href, $lkcnt + 1, 1) ;writes link since row 2, and constantly on col 1

EndIf
Next

_IEQuit($oIE)
Next

I'm still not understanding what you need. Please explain it.

You cannot add 1 to the $oLink...it is an object, not a 'value'. What are you trying to accomplish by the $oLink + a.href...also, since a is not a dom object, you can't use the dom property .href on it...it's just an integer held in a variable.

Explain, very thoroughly, what your do loop is attempting.

edit: if the link's href is already matched on one URL, how are you able to match it to a second URL? Are you trying to continue the link collection loop, relative to the current match? You would need to do something like this for nested collection loops:

For $oLink In $oLinks ;"for a sub-object in the object"
$isMatched = StringRegExp($oLink.href, '')
If $isMatched = 1 Then
For $oLink_a in $oLinks
    ; your code
Next
EndIf
Next

here we go, i think this is what you need...you can use an integer to loop through the collection...I'm not aware of any property to get the current itteration from within a collection, but if you create your own integer to count that, you may then use that as your $i starting point:

Local $oIE = _IECreate("google.com")
 _IELoadWait($oIE)
 Local $oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE)
 For $i = 0 To $oLinks.length - 1
  ConsoleWrite($oLinks.item($i).href & @CRLF)
 Next

Thank you, very nice solutions. I wasn't aware of the other objects.

As I was awaiting replies, I also came up with a distinct solution:

_ExcelWriteCell($linkCol, "@@@@@@@@@@ " & $page & $curr_page & " @@@@@@@@@@", $row, 1)

Global $href_array[$iNumLinks]
$a = 0
For $oLink In $oLinks
$href_array[$a] = $oLink.href
;MsgBox(0, '', $href_array[$a])
$a += 1
Next

For $b = 0 To $iNumLinks-1 Step 1
$isMatched = StringRegExp($href_array[$b], '(http://examplelink.com/articles/)(\d+)(\/)')
If $isMatched = 1 Then

_ExcelWriteCell($linkCol, $href_array[$b], $lkcnt + 1, 2) ;writes link since row 2, and constantly on col 2

$d = 0
for $c = $b to $iNumLinks-1 Step 1 ;continues loop at $b
$matchpic = StringInStr($href_array[$c], "imgchili")
if $matchpic >= 1 then $d += 1
if $d = 3 then ExitLoop ;when done searching for the 3rd pic, exit this loop
next

_ExcelWriteCell($linkCol, $href_array[$c], $lkcnt + 1, 1) ;writes link since row 2, and constantly on col 1.
;range exceeds because the for loop went through the rest of the array...

EndIf
Next

The method used here is to loop through each $oLink.href while storing into each array index. From there, I can easily accomplish what I was trying to do in the first place.

      I'm trying to create script that would login on my SAP WEBI "web page" and replace some uploaded excel files. But i'm having problem on even the log in.
      These are user fill elements with Firefox Inspector
      <input type="text" id="_id0:logon:CMS" name="_id0:logon:CMS"> <input type="text" id="_id0:logon:USERNAME" name="_id0:logon:USERNAME"> <input type="password" id="_id0:logon:PASSWORD" name="_id0:logon:PASSWORD"> LogOnButton
      <input type="submit" id="_id0:logon:logonButton" value="Log On" class="logonButtonNoHover logon_button_no_hover" onmouseover="this.className = 'logonButtonHover logon_button_hover';" onmouseout="this.className = 'logonButtonNoHover logon_button_no_hover';">  
       
      My example, I tried _IEGetObjByName and _IEGetObjById but the script only open page but will not even fill out the form
        #include <IE.au3> Call("signIn") Func signIn() Global $oIE = _IECreate("http://192.xxx.xxx.xx:xxx/BOE/BI") Sleep (5000) Local $server = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "_id0:logon:CMS") Local $username = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "_id0:logon:USERNAME") Local $password = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "_id0:logon:PASSWORD") Local $button = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "_id0:logon:logonButton") _IEFormElementSetValue($server, "TestServer:1000") _IEFormElementSetValue($username, "MyUserName") _IEFormElementSetValue($password, "MyPass") ; THIS PART ABOUT BUTTON CLICK I DONT UNDERSTAND AT ALL $sSelector = "body > div:nth-of-type(2) > div > div:nth-of-type(3) > div > table > tbody > tr > td > table > tbody > tr > td > table > tbody > tr:nth-of-type(1) > td > div > div:nth-of-type(1) > form > div:nth-of-type(5) > button" $signInUC = $oIE.document.QuerySelector($sSelector) _IEAction($signInUC, "click") EndFunc ;==>signIn

      Hello ,

      A website I am trying to login with my credentials.
      And retrieve the cookie into a text file.
      Unable to do so.
      Is it that certain,  Httponly , type - are not allowed to be fetched.

      Then further ,
      I will be checking every 5 minutes if my session is active , else re-login and re-fetch the cookie.
      For the second part , I will probably fetch some table and see if not in appropriate format do Part 1 : Fetch Cookie - again.
      Any better way , tips would be appreciated.
       
      Thanks

      Hello! Thanks you for looking at my post
      **No source code I'm sorry work related can't copy information**
      I've been using autoit for about 1 year. 
      I'm having trouble automating a click on an internet explorer web page and I've tried a lot of examples from help pages and forums already. The object I'm trying to click on isnt always in the same spot so I can't use mouse click or control click, I have tried to use the different get collection options and clickbyname, or index or get object. I'm just struggling. 
      Description of object I'm trying to click -- 
      HTML Code looks like <a ng-click.. "Click Here" it appears it's just a click able object named "click here" that opens a hidden window by running a script inside the web page. I'm not able to grab the information from the window unless it's open so I have to automate this click somehow. 
       
      I understand it's difficult to assist without having something to look at, I apologize for that sincerely and appreciate and assistance and suggestions.
